Dhamra LNG Terminal Pvt. Ltd. (DLTPL) has signed a contract with Rolls-Royce for the complete Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) delivery of a 29 MW gas-based power plant for an Indian LNG terminal.

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.

These medium-speed gas engines are characterised by high availability and low operating costs. The engine’s efficient combustion technology, in addition to being fuelled by a clean LNG fuel, also ensures low environmental impact coupled with improved performance.

The LNG terminal will function as a reception facility for import of LNG, where LNG tankers can directly unload cargo and convert the LNG gas from liquid state to gaseous state.

A joint venture between Indian multinational conglomerate Adani Group and French energy major Total SA, DLTPL is located on the eastern coast of Odisha in India.

The “highly efficient power plant will meet the baseload capacity of the LNG terminal and will offer high reliability and availability of more than 98 percent” said DLTPL.

Dhamra LNG CEO, Mr SP Singh, said: “We are delighted to have a Rolls-Royce company supplying us with the critical power system for our upcoming terminal in Odisha. Rolls-Royce’s selection followed a thoroughly competitive tendering process and we are reassured by their extensive experience in the area of power systems both globally and for Indian LNG terminals.”

When commissioned at the end of 2021, Dhamra LNG Terminal will be the second LNG plant in India that is powered by Rolls-Royce Bergen medium speed engines. The first is the Indian Oil Corporation LNG Terminal at Ennore, Tamil Nadu.
