SENER presents advanced floating LNG solutions at Gastech 201811/09/2018 (Spain)
The engineering and technology group SENER will be present in the 2018 edition of the Gastech exhibition and Conference that will take place in Barcelona (Spain) from September 17 to 20, gathering professionals from the natural gas, LNG and energy industries worldwide.
SENER will have its own booth to showcase its experience in the Gas sector, with more than €2.5 billion in LNG contracts and references as EPC contractor such as like Sagunto in Spain, Dunkirk in France, Zeebrugge in Belgium or Gate terminal in the Netherlands. SENER has become a leader in the LNG sector, applying technologies developed in-house.
At Gastech, SENER will show its floating solutions in LNG, where it is able to offer an integral project of the entire LNG value chain using its own technology and engineering.
SENER can deliver the engineering, procurement, construction, commissioning and operation of small – mid scale floating LNG solutions (FSRU: Floating Storage Regasification Unit; FSU: Floating Storage Unit; FRU: Floating Regasification Unit; FSRPU: Floating Storage Regasification Power Unit; FPU: Floating Power Unit;), and also SENER can develop jetty–marine works, bunkering vessels, and gas fired power plants, executing EPC integrated projects from virtual gas pipelines to Gas to Power.
Virtual gas pipelines with LNG Small and Medium Scale liquefaction plant (LNG S&MS) is an emerging market intended to quickly cover the energy needs in local areas where there is a low availability of space onshore. This system is based on extracting natural gas from an existing pipeline and taking it to a remote location through a liquefaction-transport-regasification approach that can be very cost competitive in certain scenarios. Thanks to the functionality of these small size terminals, it is possible to give access to natural gas to users that had never before had a nearby pipeline. SENER has already developed a virtual gas pipeline (liquefaction plant included) in Bolivia.
SENER is a technology company with an important expertise not only in all the fields that comprise the value chain of LNG (liquefaction, storage, regasification, distribution and power generation), but also in other key aspects for this project like marine engineering, marine civil works and others. It has a strong reference list in LNG and coastal projects around the world.
Besides, SENER has developed a comprehensive project portfolio in marine and naval architecture since its foundation, in 1956, as a marine engineering company. On this regard, SENER has developed its own bunkering vessel with an innovative design that will be shown at Gastech, using its own CAD/CAM/CAE shipbuilding software FORAN.
Finally, SENER has more than 20.000 MW installed, worldwide guarantee of SENER capabilities as E/EPC contractor in gas fired Power Plants, with references like Aceca, Bizkaia Energía and El Vent combined cycle facilities in Spain, San Martín, Manuel Belgrano and Bicentenario in Argentina, Temozulia II and Termozulia III in Venezuela and Norte I, Poza Rica and Agua Prieta in Mexico, some of them delivered as turnkey projects.
All this experience will be shared by SENER professionals at Gastech 2018, at the company’s booth nº G175.
