Last stage to Güstrow in sight

Film team reports on domestic LNG tank transport by EnviTec Biogas

December 15, 2022 Almost there - that is the logistical interim balance of the LNG tank in transit for the BioEnergie Park Güstrow. "After 19 days at sea and a few kilometers on the road between Rostock and Güstrow, the lion's share of the journey will be tackled from 10 p.m. tomorrow, Friday," says Andreas Kley, project manager at EnviTec. If everything goes according to plan, the 37.66-meter-long component for Germany's largest integrated LNG liquefaction plant will reach its "home port" of Güstrow on Saturday morning.

The route will be covered by heavy and overload transport. "A not-so-simple undertaking, since we or and transport partner must of course comply with all the requirements and are only allowed to drive at specified times - in this case at night," reports Kley. In total, the special route of around 75 kilometers then took eight days due to downtimes - a whole six days longer than planned. "Delays happen in the project business. We are well prepared for this based on our many years of experience," explains Olaf von Lehmden, CEO of EnviTec Biogas AG. A three-man film team from the German broadcaster NDR was on site in Güstrow yesterday. The LNG tank will be shown on TV for the first time today at 7:30 p.m. on NDR Mecklenburg-Vorpommern.
