MT Group signed an add-on contract with the Belgian operator of the Zeebrugge LNG terminal for Mechanical, Piping and Structural Steel Works at the facility. 4 additional truck loading bays will be installed under this contract and fully integrated with the existing LNG infrastructure.

At the end of 2021, Belgian Fluxys LNG signed a contract with MT Group for a capacity increase project at the Zeebrugge facility, the combined value of the two contracts exceeds 17,5 million euro. The general contractor’s agreement foresees an expansion of one of the most versatile LNG terminals in Europe, already offering a wide array of services combining conventional LNG terminalling with small-scale activities (including the provision of BioLNG services).

The mobilisation to site and preparatory works for the expansion project of the Zeebrugge LNG terminal are now completed, and works are progressing.

The Zeebrugge terminal project, which is of strategic importance in Europe, will strengthen the role of the region as a major hub for small-scale activities, whereby (Bio)LNG is used as an alternative fuel for vessels and trucks or as fuel for industrial customers not in the vicinity of a natural gas pipeline system, making a significant contribution to the development of a greener energy system.

The LNG terminal in Zeebrugge has been in operation since 1987 and is one of the main LNG supply points to North-West Europe. The terminal currently supplies gas directly into the Belgian gas grid but also serves the Netherlands and Germany.

Fluxys LNG is a 100% affiliate of Fluxys Belgium, a Euronext listed subsidiary of energy infrastructure group Fluxys headquarted in Belgium. With 900 employees the company operates 4,000 kilometers of pipeline, a liquefied natural gas terminal totalling a yearly regasification capacity of 9 billion cubic meters and an underground storage facility.
