The industrial services provider Bilfinger is putting its expertise to work to help move the energy transition in Germany forward. The most recent example: Bilfinger is supporting REEFUELERY with the construction of a bio-LNG plant for the production of the low-emission and climate-friendly REEFUEL for heavy-duty transport. The contract for work on the construction of the bio-LNG plant including the refueling facility has now been signed between the subsidiary and REEFUELERY of Bakum in Germany. The plant, which will be completed in the first quarter of 2024, will produce LNG from biomethane that will be used as an alternative fuel for freight and heavy-duty transportation to reduce CO2 emissions.The bio-LNG plant near Fulda will produce up to 180 tons of climate-neutral fuel per day from biomethane derived from municipal and agricultural residues. The sustainable fuel can be used in any LNG-powered truck and contributes to the decarbonization of heavy-duty transport. Up to 4,500 heavy-duty vehicles can be run on a permanently climate-neutral basis with the quantities produced in the plant. This saves a total of up to 550,000 tons of CO2 per year compared with diesel fuel. Bilfinger’s client REEFUELERY chose the site near Fulda because of its direct access to MIDAL, one of the most powerful gas pipelines in Germany.The bio-LNG plant is made up of a large number of individual parts, including components for cleaning and liquefying the gas, pumps, storage tanks and devices for refueling the tanker trucks. Bilfinger's services for the construction of the bio-LNG plant include EPC (engineering-procurement-construction) services for the refueling facility as well as piping construction expertise. Because gas liquefaction involves working with extremely low temperatures, the piping must be designed to withstand operating temperatures as low as minus 196 degrees Celsius and be fitted with special insulation. Bilfinger’s decades of expertise in plant construction for clients in the fuel sector can be transferred seamlessly to a green energy source in the construction of the bio-LNG plant.
