Evol LNG scores supply deal for Esperance power project
Western Australian LNG supplier, Evol LNG, has been selected to deliver the chilled fuel to Esperance power station.
Evol LNG has been selected to be the long-term supplier of liquefied natural gas by a regional electricity supplier, Horizon Power.
The Esperance power project, which Horizon Power is a part of, aims to reduce the town of Esperance’s carbon footprint and emissions by 50 per cent.
The project involves the construction of a new power station fuelled by LNG as well as other clean energy infrastructure, including a 9MW wind farm and a 4MW 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.
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.
