Energy World Corporation has announced two recent updates to its liquefied natural gas (LNG) projects in the Philippines and Indonesia.
Pagbilao Hub Terminal
Significant progress has been made on the company’s Pagbilao Hub Terminal site development and its 600 MW combined cycle power station. This includes:
- Completion of the base slab for the 130 000 m3 LNG tank with slipform equipment readied for the construction of the tank walls;
- Progress of the ancillary site formation works and;
- Preparation of the two 200 MW Siemens SGT6-5000F gas turbines, now packed and ready for shipment.
Energy World CEO, Steward Elliott, explained that this development is a significant step in the construction of the Philippines first LNG receiving terminal. Once completed, the terminal will enable LNG to be distributed throughout the Philippines including Mindanao.
LNG imported to the terminal will be used for power generation, industrial use, city gas, transport and vehicle fuel, bringing clean energy to the Philippines at an economical price. It will also offer an opportunity to reduce the country’s reliance on coal-fired power stations in the future.
Gas turbines for the terminal will be shipped in two consignments from the US to the Pagbilao site. A contract to ship the turbines has already been placed and shipment of the first 200 MW unit is scheduled towards the end of this month with arrival to the site in January 2014.
Energy World also announced the significant milestone of the erection of the first cold box at the LNG site development in Keera, South Sulawesi.
Elliott commented that the completion of the tank foundations involving over 450 30 m deep re-enforced piles and the safe lifting into the position of the first LNG cold box weighing 230 t is a significant triumph for the company and the site construction team from PT Slipform Engineering responsible for the achievement.
