German LNG Terminal GmbH, the joint venture behind the LNG terminal project in Brunsbuettel, Germany, has completed the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contractor pre-qualification process that started at the end of June 2019.
Following a careful selection process, four internationally operating EPC contractors have been shortlisted to continue the competitive tender process.
Essential qualifications that have been assessed are: safety track record, experience in design and construction of similar projects, awareness of German codes and practices and financial strength. The shortlisted companies are as follows:
- Cobra Instalaciones y Servicios S.A. - Sener Ingeniería y Sistemas S.A.
- Hyundai Engineering Co. Ltd - Korea Gas Corp.
- Sacyr Fluor S.A. - Entrepose Contracting S.A.S. / VINCI Construction Grands Projets S.A.S. - Sacyr Somague S.A.

The EPC tender closing is on 5 December 2019, with the subsequent EPC contract award planned before the end of April 2020.
The EPC scope contains a jetty with two berths for LNG carriers ranging from 1000 up to 265 000 m3, both with LNG unloading and loading capabilities, LNG storage tanks, LNG vaporisation and distribution facilities for a total capacity up to 8 billion m3/yr.
The launch of the EPC tender is a significant step in the continued development of the German LNG Terminal project. Following the conclusion of the scoping phase at the end of July, the permit approval process is also steadily moving forward.
