Prometheus Energy Group, Inc., has completed a four month long winter peaking service to augment National Grid's distribution network in Rhode Island.
National Grid operates LNG facilities throughout New England and required a temporary LNG storage solution to supply LNG to an existing vapouriser this winter. The facility was operational from December through March to pump LNG to the vapouriser on demand in order to inject additional gas supply into their distribution network during cold winter conditions. Prometheus Energy responded to the National Grid RFP with a unique equipment solution that was able to pump LNG at 750 000 ft3 per hour to meet the peak demand of National Grid's network.
"We were faced with a dynamic challenge that required a specific equipment configuration as well as operational experience to complete the project. We selected Prometheus Energy based on these criteria and to provide a safe, reliable, and professional service to meet our temporary peak shaving needs," said Zachary Kinton, Lead Specialist of LNG Operations at National Grid.
"The combination of our proven equipment package and our extensive experience in winter peaking applications, provided National Grid with an effective temporary LNG facility designed to meet their winter demand," stated Jim Aivalis, CEO of Prometheus Energy. "We worked closely with the National Grid team to ensure the project was designed, installed, and operated safely and reliably to meet the project requirements."
