Frazer-Nash Consultancy has been awarded a place on the Design and Engineering Technical Services framework agreement for National Grid’s Grain LNG importation terminal.
Grain LNG, the leading LNG importation terminal in the UK, has been looking for companies able to provide it with a range of design, engineering and technical services as it expands to deliver the UK’s predicted increased requirement for gas.
Frazer-Nash has been awarded a place on the framework for all three phases of Grain LNG’s projects: pre-feasibility/feasibility and option selection, conceptual design and front end engineering design (FEED).
Martin Concannon, Frazer-Nash Business Manager said: “We are delighted that Grain LNG have awarded us a place on this framework. We believe that our multi-disciplinary expertise and experience of working with customers who have complex, cross-domain and highly regulated requirements will enable us to provide Grain LNG with bespoke solutions.”
With experience in multiple technical areas – including structural integrity, fluid and thermal modelling, materials performance, electrical engineering, control and instrumentation, and safety critical systems – Frazer-Nash will be able to offer assistance across the full range of Grain LNG’s projects, supporting it in its delivery of the highest standards of performance for its customers.
Nicola Duffin, Senior Commercial Manager at National Grid’s Grain LNG said: “Grain recently celebrated ten exceptional years of progress and now we are looking to the future, increasing the services we offer to our customers and working to ensure that Grain remains the European port of choice for LNG shippers. Our framework partners are crucial to our safety and success.”
Grain LNG’s terminal, based at the Isle of Grain in Kent, is of strategic national importance to UK energy infrastructure and security of supply. The terminal receives ships berthing at its River Medway jetties and unloads their LNG into storage tanks with a combined capacity of more than one million cubic metres. From these storage tanks the LNG can be transferred to ships, road tankers or re-gasified for injection into the UK’s gas transmission system.
