Official start of construction for LNG jetty

STADE. After the inauguration of Germany’s first LNG terminal in Wilhelmshaven on 17 December, the first pile was rammed into the ground in January for the construction of the next LNG jetty in Lower Saxony. For NPorts, this measure, which accounts for an investment amount of up to 300 million euros, is the largest construction project since the port company was founded. The jetty for liquefied gas is due to go into operation in winter 2023/24 with a floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU). Around 50 LNG tankers will then be handled there each year.
