Dhamra LNG terminal is a joint venture between Indian multinational conglomerate Adani Group and French energy major Total located on the eastern coast of Odisha in India.

The power plant will meet the baseload capacity of the LNG terminal offering availability of more than 98 per cent, Rolls-Royce said on Tuesday.

The core equipment for the new gas-based power plant will include three 9.6 MW gensets, based on the 20-cylinder Rolls-Royce Bergen B35:40 gas engines.

The engine’s efficient combustion technology, in addition to being fuelled by LNG fuel, also ensures low environmental impact coupled with improved performance.

When commissioned at the end of 2021, the Dhamra LNG terminal will be the second LNG plant in India that is powered by Rolls-Royce Bergen medium-speed engines. Rolls-Royce has earlier supplied and commissioned a 28 MW power plant in 2018, running on LNG fuel to the Indian Oil Corporation LNG terminal at Ennore, Tamil Nadu.

Designed for an initial capacity of 5 million tonnes per annum (mtpa), expandable up to 10 mtpa, the proposed Dhamra LNG import and regasification terminal will initially have two full containment type tanks of 180,000 cubic meters capacity each.

Rolls-Royce will be managing the engineering, procurement, and construction of the new gas power plant for the LNG terminal.
