Wärtsilä Oyj Abp: Wärtsilä's cooperation with ENGIE aims at developing small scale LNG markets

Wärtsilä Corporation, Press release, 7 November 2016 at 2.00 pm EET

Wärtsilä has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the French
multinational energy company ENGIE, to develop solutions and services within
the small scale LNG business sector.

The cooperation covers four work streams: LNG for ships, LNG distribution in
islands and remote areas, LNG to Power solutions, and small scale LNG and bio
liquefaction. Both Wärtsilä and ENGIE are committed to working for a
low-carbon economy, and shifting the focus towards LNG-solutions is seen as
being an important step in this direction.

Through this partnership, the two companies will share Wärtsilä's technical
expertise and Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) capabilities,
along with ENGIE's technical expertise, and experience in natural gas
distribution and commercialization. Operation and maintenance services will
also be offered.

"ENGIE has taken key positions in the small scale LNG market. This agreement
with Wärtsilä will help develop innovative small scale LNG solutions with
quicker implementation time and enhanced competitiveness," says Jean-Marc
Leroy, ENGIE's Managing Director Gas Chain.

"We are excited to be working with ENGIE and developing together more
sustainable energy solutions for our customers and society as a whole. This
cooperation is an important step towards Wärtsilä's goal of growing our
presence in the small to medium scale LNG terminal business," says Alexandre
Eykerman, Vice President for LNG Solutions at Wärtsilä.

Wärtsilä is currently the EPC contractor for an onshore small scale LNG
terminal in Finland, and has successfully delivered several small scale power
barges and a biogas liquefaction plant. ENGIE is one of the pioneers in the
development of small scale LNG markets and innovative solutions. This
includes small liquefaction plants, LNG truck loading, LNG bunkering, LNG
fuelling stations, LNG for power applications, and supplying LNG to remote

This MoU is a strong incentive to co-develop technical solutions that would
enable both Wärtsilä and ENGIE to expand their small scale LNG businesses.
