KN is the pioneer in the field of LNG infrastructure in both Lithuania and the three Baltic States.

The invaluable experience gained during the construction of the LNG terminal, its operation during over two years, and the expansion of the LNG market have created the need to pool business with science in order to share the experience, develop new competences, and introduce innovation.

In this context the idea to establish a cluster was born. The aim of the cluster is collaboration in the fields of energy, education, science and business thus increasing scientific, technological and economic competitiveness and promoting the LNG business and investments.

The LNG cluster consists of Klaipėdos Nafta AB, Vakarų laivų remonto gamykla AB, Klaipėda University, Klaipėda Science and Technology Park, Lithuanian Maritime Academy, Klaipėda FEZ, Emerson Process Management UAB, and SGS Klaipėda LTD. Acting under a joint venture agreement, the participants in the cluster join their business and scientific experience, competences, opportunities and ideas for the LNG technology development and successful competition.

Activities of the cluster are managed by Klaipėda Science and Technology Park. For more information about the cluster please visit http://www.lngcluster.eu/en/about/
