Demaco has been awarded the contract to engineer, produce and supply vacuum insulated pipelines (VIP) for the transfer of liquefied natural gas (LNG) on a new LNG plant in Rio Grande, Bolivia.
The order came from the consortium Indox Cryo Energy (Ros Roca Sener), which has won the contract in Bolivia. The consortium will construct an LNG plant that will supply natural gas to six of the country’s nine regions. Yacimientos Petroliferos Fiscales Bolivianos (YPFB), the company contracting the project, has scheduled operations to begin by the end of 2014.
The new LNG Plant will be located in the city of Rio Grande and will serve 140 000 households and 5000 commercial users in thirteen smaller cities.
The VIP have process diameters ranging from 2 to 8 in. with a total length of over half a kilometre.
The LNG plant will have the capacity to produce 200 tpd of LNG which will be transported in cryogenic tanks to Regasification Satellite Stations (ESR), which will regasify the LNG and distribute the gas through pipelines to houses and commercial users.
