ENAGAS acquire grounds to build El Musel Regasification Plant

Within the planned timetable, GIJON authorities, made available to ENAGAS, the grounds for the reception, storage and liquefied natural gas (LNG) regasification terminal at El MUSEL, in a ceremony attended by Principality of Asturias presidents, by GIJON Port authorities and ENAGAS.

The Regasification Plant of EL MUSEL, is a key infrastructure for the development of the Principality Energy Strategy and a fundamental pillar of the National Energy Planning.

It will be built on an Port esplanade of 18 hectares, expandable to 23; with a quay which allow to operate two ships simultaneously, two storage tanks of 300,000 m3 and a emission capacity of 800,000 m3, including a modern automated system for tank truck loading to properly transport LNG.

MONTREL industrial group is involved in this project doing design, computer engineering, instrumentation and mechanics for the tank truck loading terminal with automatic weight control. This work includes basic and detailed loading system, piping Skid, as well as an overall automation of the loading system with process control and production of administrative documentation.

MONTREL is currently the leading force of control systems and petroleum products loading terminals management process in the Spanish market and is the only integrator at a national level of systems for tank truck cryogenic loading facilities in LNG storage and regasification plants, having previously implemented the systems of the Loading Plants of CARTAGENA, HUELVA, BARCELONA, BILBAO, SAGUNTO and MUGARDOS(A Coruña).

The regasification plant of GIJON, shall  work through a network with these six loading plants already cited which are in operation in Spain and shall give security to the power generation system, in which combined cycles ensure continuity of supply when there aren’t optimum operating conditions of renewable energy sources.
