The contract was placed by the German energy company REEFUELERY, a joint venture between Erdgas Südwest and avanca. Once operational, the plant will produce 63 000 tons of bio-LNG annually.

The plant, located in Burhaun, near Fulda, will use biomethane from communal and agricultural waste as feedstock. The biomethane will be liquefied and delivered to Alternoil as bio-LNG. The plant is due to become fully operational in Q1 2024.

Walter Reggente, Vice President of Wärtsilä Gas Solutions, said: “Decarbonisation solutions are at the front and centre of Wärtsilä’s strategies, and we are delighted to support REFUELERY in the realisation of its first German biomethane liquefaction plant.”
