Contract worth 160 million euros
VINCI Construction Grands Projets, a subsidiary of VINCI Construction, was selected for the design and construction of a 180,000 m3 liquefied natural gas reservoir in the Netherlands. This project is part of the program to expand the storage and regasification capacity of the GATE (Gas Access To Europe) terminal , located at the port of Rotterdam, by allowing the supply of 4 billion m 3 of additional gas by year.
