Vinci has announced the signature of an EPC (Engineering, Procurement and Construction) contract to build Germany’s first regasification terminal. It will have a production capacity of 10 billion m3 of natural gas per year and will have two 165,000 m3 storage tanks. The terminal will also be equipped with auxiliary operating systems, infrastructure and buildings.This terminal will provide strategic infrastructure for the customer German LNG Terminal, and will be located at Brunsbüttel at the mouth of the Elbe on the North Sea. It will enable Germany to import liquefied natural gas by sea, to be unloaded there for storage and regasification before being injected into the German grid or transported by lorries or wagons. The installation is to be delivered in 2026, with the works lasting 42 months.
