Andion to build Skogn II LBG production facility in Norway

WCN Editorial Team 15 Oct 2020 EUROPE ENERGY & UTILITIES

Andion Global, a provider of waste-to-energy solutions, has been selected by a Norwegian company Biokraft for the construction of the Skogn II liquid biogas (LBG) production facility in Norway.

The new facility will expand Biokraft’s LBG production at Skogn in Trøndelag, which is claimed to be the largest LBG production facility in the world.

The biological waste comprises agricultural byproducts that include cow manure, fish waste and byproduct from the Norwegian fish farming industry and process water from the pulp and paper industry.

Biokraft CEO Håvard Wollan said: “As the world’s largest LBG producer, we are already producing 10,000 tonnes of green fuel a year at Skogn, and we are excited about being able to expand our production capacity at this site.

“According to leading energy analysts, the demand for liquid biogas by 2030 will grow to a point where we will have to build many more plants like Skogn.

“The industry potential is huge, so we are keen on creating the right partnerships like the one we now have with Andion.”

The expansion project, which will entail an investment of approximately €30m, will be delivered in two phases - 3,500 tonnes of biofuel production at Skogn II and an additional 6,500 tonnes of biofuel production at Skogn III.

Upon completion, the total project represents an investment of €70m in Skogn where the company’s LBG production facilities are located.

Andion said that the two new LBG production facilities will be constructed at the end of Fiborgtangen in Skogn, where land will be expanded into the ocean to optimally position the two new plants.

Construction on the Skogn II project is planned to commence in late this year.

Furthermore, the biofuel produced at Skogn is now being utilised for heavy transport and other marine transport vessels along the Norwegian coast.
