WSP Parsons Brinckerhoff wins Scottish gas role

Gas flame

Engineering consultancy WSP Parsons Brinckerhoff has been appointed to work on a new liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal, which aims to boost low-cost energy in Scotland.

The terminal – a joint initiative between energy suppliers Flogas Britain and Stolt-Nielsen – will create more than 100 new jobs in Fife and aims to make LNG cheaper, helping to reduce carbon emissions in line with the Scottish government’s Low Carbon Economic Strategy.

WSP Parsons Brinckerhoff will work on the development, planning, permitting and consenting of the new terminal, which is forecast to finish in 2019.

“We are delighted to be supporting Stolt-Nielsen and Flogas in an exciting, innovative and flagship development project that will significantly reduce regional carbon emissions and further contribute to the low carbon economy that we are all seeking,” said WSP Parsons Brinckerhoff’s head of power generation Alan Lawless.

“Job creation is also a very positive outcome of the project. We hope that this and subsequent developments will contribute to the security of our energy supply within the UK.”

The initiative is the first step towards increasing Scotland’s energy self-sufficiency and reducing energy costs for homes and businesses that are off the national gas network.
