January 15, 2024 [LNG Prime]- Three 200,000-cbm LNG tanks at Guangdong Energy’s Huizhou LNG terminal in China have reached mechanical completion, according to Germany-based TGE Gas Engineering, a unit of China’s CIMC.
TGE Gas said in a statement the tanks achieved mechanical completion on January 12, 2024, ahead of the contracted construction period, marking the completion of the EPC storage tank project and the start of commissioning activities.
Back in 2021, TGE Gas won the Guangdong Huizhou LNG EPC contract with its consortium partner CIMC EnTech.
Chinese state-owned power utility Guangdong Energy announced the construction start of the LNG import project worth about $1 billion in July 2021.
In August 2022, TGE and its partner raised the roof on the third large storage tank.
The first phase includes the three LNG tanks and related facilities for connecting, unloading, gasification and export, and one LNG ship unloading berth with a capacity of up to 266,000 cbm.
TGE Gas says the project will have an annual maximum capacity of 6.1 mtpa.
