The terminal will comprise two jetties, storage tanks, unloading arms, systems for regasification and gas emission, a Boil-off Gas (BOG) recovery system, a flare stack, and auxiliary systems, among others.

The terminal will facilitate the loading and unloading of LNG imported by sea, followed by regasification and injection into the German natural gas grid.

The contract includes the first phase of preliminary work that is planned to last for nine to 15 months.

The LNG terminal installation is scheduled for completion in 2026, following a construction period of 42 months.
