Twenty20 to deploy floating gas power solutions in PNG
Singapore’s Twenty20 Energy will roll out its proprietary power island floating storage regasification & power (FSRP) solution in 12 locations across Papua New Guinea (PNG) on behalf of PAWA PNG, it said on July 11.
The PAWA PNG project, a joint venture with Dirio Gas & Power and the PNG government, will provide 283 MW of electricity supply with significantly lower emissions, as it primarily replaces ageing, inefficient diesel-based generation with gas and heat recovery-based generation, Twenty20 Energy said.
Twenty20 Energy’s proprietary FSRP consists of three components: FSRP power barges, fuel barges and floating piers.
The 12 power islands will be located just offshore outside 12 cities, with three of the more strategic locations – Daru, Lae and Lihir – to also host LNG bulk storage facilities. The nine other locations are Manus Island, Buka Town, Kimbe, Alotau, Madang, Rabaul, Wewak, Kiunga and Kikori.
