Tokyo Gas begins construction of second Hitachi LNG tank

Recommended Posts

Tokyo Gas has commenced construction of the second 230,000 m3 storage tank of the full containment type at its Hitachi terminal in Ibaraki prefecture, 130 km northeast of Tokyo. The new unit, which will be completed in late 2020, will double the LNG-handling capacity of the terminal to 6.4 mta.

The second storage tank will help Tokyo Gas meet the growing demand for gas in the Kanto region north of Tokyo.

A key customer of the increased flow of LNG will be Kobe Steel which will utilize gas from Hitachi to fuel a new gas-fired power plant to be built adjacent to its Moka steelworks. 

Kobe Steel will sell to Tokyo Gas electricity from the new Moka facility, Japan’s first thermal power plant to be situated inland.
