Connect LNG recently entered into the Detail Engineering phase of the first UTS™ loading system.
“- After careful consideration of several bidders for the contract we decided on Vard Engineering largely due to their experience as a complete EPC provider of innovative vessels, as well as their focus on quality and reliability, says CEO Morten Christophersen.

The detail engineering project was initiated in early May with scheduled completion in September this year.

– We are grateful for the contract and to be part of making the UTS™ ready for commercial production. Working together with Connect LNG on this game-changing loading system fits well with our experience, strategy and engineering capabilities, says Øystein Sæther, CEO at Vard Engineering.

Sea trials are scheduled for early next year at Herøya, Norway together with Herøya Industrial Park, local authorities and key stakeholders in Norway’s busiest port.

– We will approach yards and workshops shortly to prepare for production start in October, adds Mr Christophersen.” (Morten Christophersen, CEO at Connect LNG).
