Sembcorp Marine, Engie in LNG-to-power MOU
- Project & Tenders
Singapore-based Sembcorp Marine and Engie of France signed a memorandum of understanding to cooperate in the development and deployment of the Gravifloat technology for LNG-to-Power near-shore terminals.
The partnership would focus on small LNG power businesses with 10 MW to 300 MW capacities, Sembcorp Marine said in its statement on Monday.
Gravifloat solutions are steel-based modularised and floatable structures fixed to the seabed at site. As alternatives to existing onshore and floating LNG facilities, these structures are re-floatable and can be redeployed to another location.
The modules are constructed and tested at Sembcorp Marine’s shipyards.
Since 2015, Sembcorp Marine and Engie have been discussing a Gravifloat 3-in-1 integrated solution for near-shore receiving, storage and regasification of LNG as well as power generation.
The parties intend to develop and promote this 3-in-1 solution to meet the needs of emerging markets, as well as cooperating on targeted projects.
