“With our profound expertise in the infrastructure sector, our wealth of experience in complex large-scale projects and our record as a reliable partner, we are optimally equipped to expand the Polish gas transmission system. We look forward to making a valuable contribution to sustainable security of supply on our home market of Poland,” said Karl-Heinz Strauss, CEO of PORR.
The successful realisation of the project calls for a broad range of skills and services in industrial and railway construction and in hydraulic engineering – a range that only a few providers are capable of offering in full. PORR has proven its expertise in infrastructure construction in Poland on multiple projects, allowing it to position itself as a strong partner for the works on the Lech-Kaczyński LNG Terminal, which has facilities both on and offshore.
The project includes the design and build of the facility together with its commissioning and will enable the consortium to fully utilise the terminal’s existing potential through customised solutions. The contract includes building a third LNG process storage tank, a siding and a second jetty. The additional regasification capacity will lead to an increase of around 5 bn to 7.5 bn m³ of gas per year while significantly improving the overall operational safety of the regasification process.
