BRUNSBÜTTEL (dpa-AFX) – A floating terminal for liquefied pure fuel (LNG) has arrived within the industrial port of Brunsbüttel. The 294-meter-long and 46-meter-wide ship “Höegh Gannet” is thus the third floating LNG terminal in Germany to be constructed on the mouth of the Elbe River in Schleswig-Holstein. Amongst others, Federal Minister of Economics Robert Habeck (Greens), Schleswig-Holstein’s Prime Minister Daniel Günther (CDU) and RWE CEO Markus Krebber had introduced their attendance at a ceremony in Brunsbüttel on Friday morning.
The “Höegh Gannet” will initially obtain liquefied fuel in Brunsbüttel and convert it again to its gaseous state to move it to the pipelines earlier than the mounted terminal shall be prepared for operation. There, 3.5 billion cubic meters of fuel are to be fed into the grid this 12 months with the assistance of the particular ship, and seven.5 billion cubic meters as soon as an extended connecting pipeline has been accomplished. The stationary terminal is scheduled for completion in 2026.
Related terminal ships have already moored in Wilhelmshaven in Decrease Saxony and Lubmin in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania. On the Decrease Saxony aspect of the Elbe in Stade, preliminary work is simply starting on one other LNG terminal./moe/DP/jha
