Naturgy’s infrastructure, implemented in collaboration with Norwegian Connect LNG technology, was designed and manufactured in the record time of barely 6 months in a Brevik shipyard (Norway), from where it was towed to the Norwegian port of Herøya. The first unloading operation was carried out there and proved a complete success.
