Wartsila secures contract for bio-LNG plant in Latvia, reports LNG Prime.
Finland’s Wartsila had won a contract from Agrofirma Tervete to supply equipment for a bio-LNG production plant in Tervete, Latvia.
Under this contract, Wartsila would deliver its puregas CA50LBG for the disposal of CO2 and hydrogen sulfide which will be followed by an MR10 (mixed refrigerant) technology for the liquefaction stage.
The puregas CA50 LBG process regains more than 99.9 percent of the biomethane present in raw biogas by segregating CO2 from the biogas through chemical absorption.
The contract was incorporated in the company’s order intake in September 2022.
Agrofirma Tervete will operate the plant to liquefy biogas from agrarian waste into bio-LNG. The plant will have a power of 10 tons of bio-LNG per day.
Wartsila also won a contract to supply equipment for a new bio-LNG production plant with a capacity of 63,000 tons per year in Germany.
In August, the Norway-based unit of Scandinavian Biogas, Biokraft, had doubled the liquefaction capacity at its bio-LNG plant in Skogn.
