Wärtsilä will conduct the engineering, procurement and construction of the terminal, but it’s also joining the project through a minority investment by Wärtsilä Development and Financial Services) WDFS) in Hamina LNG Oy.

The main shareholders are Hamina Energy Ltd and Estonian energy company Alexela.

During the first stage of construction, a 30,000 m3 LNG storage tank will be built. Facilities are also being prepared for a second 20,000 m3 storage tank to be added at a later date.
