Kobe Steel vaporisers for LNG receiving terminal

Kobe Steel announces that its intermediate fluid LNG vaporisers (IFVs) will be used in the regasification facility for the Delimara LNG Regasification Terminal under construction in Malta. Kobe Steel will supply two IFVs. Each unit will have a regasification capacity of 58t per hour. Kobe Steel plans to ship the IFVs in October 2015.

Electrogas Malta will operate the large-scale LNG receiving terminal upon completion. J&P-AVAX, a construction group in Greece, is undertaking the engineering and construction of the receiving terminal. A floating storage unit (FSU), to be moored offshore, will supply the LNG to the land-based receiving terminal, where the regasification facility will vaporise the LNG into natural gas. The natural gas will be supplied to the adjacent Delimara Power Station, Malta’s largest power generation facility, and the new combined cycle power plant to be build. Kobe Steel’s IFVs will be the main equipment installed at the regasification facility.

To increase the power generation capacity of the new combined cycle power plant cold energy derived from LNG regasification of Kobe Steel’s IFVs will be used in order to cool the air to the gas turbines. Kobe Steel’s IFVs are highly suitable to make use of cold energy effectively. The Japanese company’s cooperation with J&P-AVAX’s during the early stage of design also contributed to winning the order for the IFVs.
