EVOL LNG to supply LNG to Australian power station

EVOL LNG is pleased to announce that it has been selected to be the long-term supplier of LNG as part of a project to generate cleaner electricity for Esperance.

EVOL LNG is a Western Australian business and one of the nation’s leading providers of LNG for remote power generation and marine transport. The business has been safely and reliably supplying remote power stations throughout Western Australia for more than 12 years.

The supply agreement with regional electricity supplier, Horizon Power, forms part of the Esperance Power Project aimed at reducing the town’s carbon footprint and emissions by 50%. The project involves the construction of a new power station fuelled by LNG as well as other clean energy infrastructure, including a 9 MW wind farm and a 4 MW solar farm.

EVOL LNG Manager Nick Rea said the project demonstrates the role of LNG in complementing high-penetration renewables.

“The key advantage of EVOL LNG’s solution is its ability to work harmoniously and cost-effectively with variable wind and solar generation.

“We are very proud to contribute to this exciting project and support both Horizon Power and the Esperance community to produce reliable, low-emissions power,” said Nick.

LNG will be transported from a production facility located in Kwinana, owned by EVOL LNG parent company, Kleenheat, and stored in a custom-built storage and vaporisation facility that can hold enough LNG to power the town for 25 days. LNG is natural gas, the same that is piped into residential homes to power stoves or gas heaters.
