[WATCH] First gas consignment arrives in Malta
The first consignment of liquefied natural gas will arrive in Marsaxlokk Bay today, while the European Commission clears the power station project as being in-line with EU state aid
11 January 2017, 9:53am
The gas, which will arrive on a ship, will originally flow into the BWSC power station and later on at the Delimara 4 plant.
Addressing a press conference outside Fort Delimara, minister Konrad Mizzi hailed the event as a historic moment for Malta and a crucial step in implementing the Labour government’s energy vision.
He said that the shift from oil to LNG will drastically reduce harmful pollution emissions and particles, and allow electricity bills to remain cheap.
Šefčovič hailed the project as one that will transform Malta’s energy landscape, lowering electricity prices for consumers while, at the same time, delivering cleaner energy.
