Working on behalf of a VINCI Joint Venture (EVT), Ledwood will fabricate 300 tonnes of steel and 280 linear metres of pipework before installation and testing on-site. The contract will create and safeguard up to 65 jobs.

This project will create a 190,000 m³ liquified natural gas reservoir as part of the programme to expand the capacity of Europe’s largest LNG terminal.

The new full containment tank, which is around the size of the Royal Albert Hall in London, will consist of a 9% nickel steel inner tank with a pre-stressed concrete outer shell.

Liam Revell, commercial director for Ledwood, says: ‘Having been instrumental in the construction of the UK’s first three LNG import terminals: South Hook, Dragon and Isle of Grain we provide project management, manufacture and installation of pipework, tanks and mechanical engineering for the LNG sector.’
