Quantum Power, a pan-African energy and industrial infrastructure platform, has received technical assistance from U.K based civil engineering firm HR Wallingford for an operational viability assessment study on its proposed Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) storage, regasification and delivery facilities at Tema, Ghana.
In July 2014, Quantum Power Ghana Gas, a subsidiary of Quantum Power signed an agreement with Golar LNG Golar to provide the project with the required Floating LNG Storage and Regasification Unit (“FSRU”) as well as technical, engineering, design and construction services. First deliveries of LNG are set to begin in early 2016.
HR Wallingford has carried out advanced feasibility studies, which include metocean, ship mooring and operational assessments and applying expertise in maritime engineering.
Its engineers and scientists will continue to work with Quantum Power to develop an effective solution to maximize operability of the facility and ensure safe and efficient transfer of LNG.
Quantum Power, the developer of a $500 million Tema LNG project, is working with some of the world’s most experienced engineering teams, collaborating to create the optimal design to address the specific maritime challenges that the Gulf of Guinea presents.
The Tema LNG project has the ability to receive, store, re-gasify and deliver over 1.75 m tons of LNG per year, utilizing a state-of-the art, purpose-built, FSRU moored off-shore, with associated sub-sea and onshore pipeline networks, to deliver natural gas to power generators in Tema
The Project also has the ability to increase its delivery capacity as demand in Tema and elsewhere evolves, facilitating availability of efficient, reliable and clean fuel to the Ghanaian power generation industry.
