Cosmodyne’s LINEX LNG plant chosen for peak shaving projects

Cosmodyne has announced that it has been chosen for multiple liquefaction projects by a North American utility company. This award underlines the company’s focus and strength in serving the utility peak shaving market.

In the statement, Cosmodyne claims that it will contract directly with the utility company and work alongside their EPC to execute the project. This strategy provides the client both maximum savings and an efficient pathway to executing the projects, while allowing direct line-of-sight to decisions on the technology being provided.

The peak shaver that Cosmodyne will be providing consists of a highly efficient nitrogen expansion liquefaction system. This utilises the company’s in-house ACD turboexpander technology and proprietary ethane removal system, which can handle a wide range of gas compositions. The equipment will be fabricated predominantly at the Cryoquip facility in California, US.

George Pappagelis, Cosmodyne General Manager, said: “We are especially excited about this project. Traditionally, utilities prefer a turnkey approach to minimise risk, but lately we are seeing more interest in purchasing equipment directly. All of our air separation plants are sold to gas companies so Cosmodyne has experience with both turnkey and direct sale approaches.”
