A contribution to the security of gas supply in the European Union
About a quarter of the EU’s energy consumption is currently based on natural gas, which amounts to a total demand of about 400 billion cubic metres. Only about 10% of gas demand is currently met by domestic gas production. In terms of energy security and competitiveness, diversification of supply sources is therefore a high priority.
The most important distribution methods to Europe are pipelines and the sea. Developing the necessary regionally distributed LNG (Liquefied Natural Gas) landing facilities can make the EU more resilient to possible supply disruptions from individual gas suppliers. This is because LNG can be sourced globally from many different supplier countries.
Such an LNG terminal was commissioned in 2021 by the company LNG Croatia LLC on the Croatian island of Krk. On behalf of the general contractor, the Croatian BENNING subsidiary was responsible for the project planning, production and installation of the power supply system intended to protect the critical loads and also supplied the NiCd battery strings required to bridge blackouts.
