RINA performs design appraisal for world’s biggest CNG power plant
Using CNG costs per unit of electricity are cut by two-thirds compared to fuel oil power and emissions for this plant are slashed by 254,000 tonnes of CO2 per year, 126.5 tonnes of SO2 per year and 3,500 tonnes of NO2 per year. The CNG system is owned and operated by PT Enviromate Technology International (ETI).
"RINA has also been appointed by PT PLN (Persero) for the design of the first marine CNG implementation in the world, to transport gas from Gresik, East Java to Lombok Island in Indonesia. The gas will be utilized to feed a small power plant in order to cope with peak hour electricity demand. The bidding phase for the EPC contract awards is now ongoing," says Lo Nigro.
