Feb. 27, 2012 - PRLog -- Hamilton, NJ – IPP is now selling its LNG plant to be operated at the present site in Germany, or to be moved to another site in the World where liquefying natural gas is economically viable. This LNG plant is available for immediate delivery, offering a tremendous cost and lead time savings versus a new plant lead time of up to 3 years.
This LNG facility can liquefy up to 2,400 NM³/Hour of natural gas, resulting in 4 NM³/Hour of LNG (600:1 ratio of gas to liquid). It has a liquid storage capacity of 22,700 NM³ (5.99 Million Gallon) and gaseous capacity of 14 Million NM³. The liquefaction process was idled in 2010. The entire plant underwent major plant wide upgrades completed in 2008 providing for safe and economical operation for another 20 years. The site has excellent rail and truck access for LNG vehicle loading. There is also a dock for equipment loading on a major waterway one half mile from the facility.
LNG Peak Shaving Plants can be used to reliably build liquid natural gas inventory for use in peak demand and emergency situations. In those situations, the LNG is vaporized at a high rate and injected back into the NG pipeline supply grid. This facility can also be beneficial to your existing LNG process by liquefying the boil-off gases from your cryogenic storage tanks thereby allowing you to leave your larger liquefaction lines idle. This plant could also be used to liquefy gas for vehicle fueling stations.
The major component of this facility is a 5.99 Million Gallon, 37 M dia. x 32 M tall X8Ni9 (9% Nickel Alloy) double-wall cryogenic LNG storage tank with (2) submersible/retractable 2-stage centrifugal in-tank pumps. The main compressor for the LNG facility is an 8-stage Ingersoll Rand reciprocating compressor with a 2,800 kW motor. Liquid Nitrogen is stored on-site in (3) 2.5/2.9 M dia. x 12.7/13.7 M double-wall tanks. Utilities and ancillary equipment include Liquid Nitrogen pumps, centrifugal high pressure pumps and a Burckhardt boil-off reciprocating gas compressor. This LNG facility utilizes new electronic instruments and a Siemens control system.
