Technical Meeting between the French Ministry for the Environment, the Energy and the Sea, Elengy and Fundación Valenciaport concerning the LNG break-bulking system at the Port of Nantes-St Nazaire and the LNG break-bulking stations in Fos-Marseille

July 21, 2016.- On July 19th, a technical meeting, concerning the pilots of the LNG break-bulking system at the Port of Nantes-St Nazaire and the LNG break-bulking stations in Fos-Marseille, which are part of the GAINN4MOS project co-financed by the CEF Programme of the European Commission, took place in Nantes (France). The French Ministry for the Environment, the Energy and the Sea; the LNG company Elengy and Fundación Valenciaport participated in the meeting.

During this working session, Cyril Hugoo (Elengy), summarised the state of the studies and works of the construction of the additional truck loading capacity in Montoir-de-Bretagne. Elengy is building LNG multimodal break-bulking facilities in Nantes-Saint-Nazaire to supply LNG as fuel to ship and truck users and to satellite stations along the Atlantic coast. Before the construction phase, a basic and a detailed engineering study have been carried out in order to evaluate the main adaptations needed in the Montoir LNG terminal to be able to deliver LNG for truck-to-ships bunkering, ship-to-ship bunkering and LNG fuelling stations. Operational, functional and risk analysis studies conducted by Elengy will complete the engineering studies.

Elengy will also build LNG multimodal break-bulking facilities in Fos Marseille (Fos Tonkin and Fos Cavaou) to supply LNG as fuel to ship and truck users and to supply to satellite stations along the Mediterranean coast. Before the construction phase, a basic and a detailed engineering study are being carried out in order to evaluate the main adaptations needed in the Fos Tonkin and Fos Cavou LNG terminals to be able to deliver LNG for truck-to-ships bunkering, ship-to-ship bunkering and LNG fuelling stations. As in the previous case, operational, functional and risk analysis studies conducted by the Port of Marseille will complete the engineering studies.

After the meeting the representatives of Fundación Valenciaport and French Ministry visited the works of the additional truck loading capacity in Montoir-de-Bretagne accompanied by Elengy representatives.
