At the beginning of 2022, specifically for the Zeebrugge LNG terminal capacity increase project, MT Group set up a 4600 m3 workshop in Belgium so that all the necessary steel structures could be prepared and assembled close to the terminal. Work here is running at full capacity.

From the start of the project, the workshop team welded a total of over 25,400 inches. That totals close to 680 isometric drawings in various diameters, from ½“ to 30″ diameter stainless steel isomterics. Numerous N2 pressure tests were carried out in the presence of the Client and a Third Party (NoBo) to witness and sign off. Dozens of trucks with prefabricated stainless steel spools were sent out to the terminal.

At the prefabrication facility, there is a separate project team who takes care of all the technical and day-to-day operations of the workshop. Best in their field welders, fitters, operators and supporting staff make a group of nearly 70 colleagues – it’s the whole campus we set up!

These works are part of the Zeebrugge LNG terminal capacity increase project owned by the Belgian energy infrastructure group Fluxys. The project aims to expand the capacity of one of the first LNG terminals in Europe, while substantially reducing its environmental footprint.
