Isle of Grain Liquefied Natural Gas Tank

Entrepose Contracting, VINCI Construction Grands Projets and Taylor Woodrow, all VINCI Construction subsidiaries, have been awarded a contract by National Grid to construct a 190,000m3 liquefied natural gas (LNG) tank on the Isle of Grain in Kent.

This full containment tank has a 9% nickel steel inner tank with a pre-stressed concrete outer shell, poured in-situ using slipforming.

This project is part of the programme to expand the capacity of what is the largest LNG terminal in Europe and is due to be completed by Summer 2025.
