Benefits

  • Up to two years faster from inception to operation—including significantly fewer on-site personnel and less site time
  • Lower engineering and construction costs with fully tested plug-and-play modules delivered to site
  • 20-30% less CO₂ lowering the carbon footprint of the liquefaction process
Features

  • Compact liquefaction modules (1 MTPA each) can be added incrementally to increase capacity while managing financial exposure
  • Power-generation building blocks add to flexibility and maximize operability between power and liquefaction
Applications

  • Onshore and offshore LNG
  • Small to medium scale resources
  • Ideal for remote locations

Overview

Overview

 

Many LNG reserves around the world (both accessible and remote) are too small to be economically viable with the traditional large-scale, stick-built approach to engineering and construction.

Our solution changes that with pre-constructed turnkey LNG modules that minimize risk and give you total control over business growth strategies.

Even the 1-MTPA range is now viable and easy. Our modules can be quickly commissioned and scaled up by one or more at a time—any time you want.

 

Liquefaction module

With a production capacity of 0.8–1 MTPA of LNG, each module weighs 3,000 tons and has a footprint of just 1,300 m2. Driven by an electric moto-compressor, the liquefaction process produces zero emissions.

 

1. Process module

  • Air coolers
  • Vessels
  • Electrical control cabins
  • Separators
  • Debutanizer
  • Scrubbers

 

2. Electric moto-compressor

  • 40 MW class with common soft start
  • Other drivers available on request

 

3. Surge vessel 

  • Refrigeration storage

 

4. Cold box

  • LNG production

 

5. e-room

  • Soft starter
Liquefaction Module
Each liquefaction module includes 1) process module, 2) electric moto-compressor, 3) surge vessel, 4) cold box for up to 1 MTPA LNG production, and 5) e-room.

 

Power-generation building blocks

Each block can power up to three liquefaction modules—with the proven performance of up to four LM9000 gas turbines (including spare) and one SC2-19 steam turbine.

They ensure 99% availability and provide heat extraction to process. The LM9000 can meet CCGT requirements and power-generation integration with renewables.

We are currently developing a battery pack that will eliminate the need for the gas turbines spinning reserve.

 

Low-risk construction and installation

The liquefaction modules and power-generation blocks are all fully constructed, tested, and commissioned at our yard in Avenza, Italy, before shipping to your project site. Upon arrival, final installation is 30% faster than traditional stick-built approaches, and requires 60% fewer on-site personnel (figures are indicative; results vary depending on project specifics). These factors, along with simplified interconnections and civil works, dramatically reduce project costs.

The pre-tested, modular approach minimizes site non-conformities, enables exact replication from one module to the next, and ensures a predictable schedule with minimized risk.
