Fluor Wins LNG Terminal Contract in Rotterdam
IRVING, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Fluor Corporation (NYSE: FLR) was awarded a contract by Gate Terminal BV, a subsidiary of Dutch Vopak and Gasunie, to design and build a liquefied natural gas (LNG) break bulk terminal in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. Fluor booked the contract for an undisclosed value in the second quarter of 2014.
“This is an excellent opportunity for Fluor to deliver its engineering, procurement and construction expertise for gas projects in Europe”
Fluor will provide engineering, procurement and construction management services for the jetty, loading facilities, boil-off gas compressors, connection to the LNG terminal and other facilities.
“This is an excellent opportunity for Fluor to deliver its engineering, procurement and construction expertise for gas projects in Europe,” said Taco de Haan, president of Fluor’s Energy & Chemicals business for Europe, Africa and the Middle East. “This project will help address Northern Europe’s growing need for LNG as a transportation fuel.”
Break bulk terminals split up large-scale LNG shipments into smaller quantities to facilitate the distribution of LNG to be used as fuel for ships and heavy trucks.
Fluor’s office in Spain, which has completed LNG projects globally, will be responsible for executing the project.
Gate Terminal anticipates the terminal will be ready for operation in 2016.
