Rolls-Royce to Supply Power Plant for Indian LNG Terminal
Rolls-Royce has signed a contract with Dhamra LNG Terminal Private for the engineering, procurement and construction of a 29-MW gas-fired power plant for the former’s LNG import terminal on India’s east coast, it said on October 6.
Dhamra LNG Terminal Private is a joint venture between India’s Adani Group and France's Total that is building an LNG import facility in the state of Odisha.
According to Rolls-Royce, the power plant will meet the baseload capacity of the LNG terminal and will offer reliability and availability of more than 98 %. The core equipment for the new gas-based power plant will include three 9.6-MW gensets using 20-cylinder Rolls-Royce Bergen B35:40 gas engines.
Due online towards the end of 2021, the Dhamra terminal will be the second LNG import facility in India to be powered by Rolls-Royce Bergen medium speed engines. Rolls-Royce supplied and commissioned a 28-MW gas-based power plant in 2018 to Indian Oil Corp’s LNG terminal at Ennore in south India.
The Dhamra terminal will have an initial capacity of 5mn metric tons/year, but may be expanded to 10mn mt/yr in the future. It will be equipped with two 180,000-m3 storage tanks.
