Kobe Steel Ltd has announced that it will supply two intermediate fluid LNG vaporisers (IFVs) to the Delimara LNG Regasification Terminal, which is currently under construction in Malta. Kobe Steel plans to ship the IFVs, which each have a regasification capacity of 58 tph, in October 2015.
J&P-AVAX S.A. is undertaking the engineering and construction of the LNG receiving terminal, which will be operated by Electrogas Malta Ltd upon completion.
A floating storage unit (FSU) will supply the LNG to the land-based receiving terminal, where the regasification facility will vaporise the LNG into natural gas. Kobe Steel’s IFVs will be the main equipment installed at the LNG regasification facility.
To increase the power generation capacity of the new combined cycle power plant, cold energy derived from LNG regasification of Kobe Steel’s IFVs will be used in order to cool the air to the gas turbines.
