Evol to supply LNG to power project in Western Australia

Wesfarmers’ Evol LNG has secured a long-term contract to supply chilled fuel to Horizon Power’s Esperance project in Western Australia.

The supply deal with the regional electricity firm forms part of the power project aimed at reducing the town’s carbon footprint and emissions by 50 percent.

Furthermore, the Esperance project involves the construction of a new LNG-fueled power station but also other clean energy infrastructure.

This includes a 9 megawatt wind farm and a 4 megawatt solar farm, according to Evol.

Evol will load the LNG onto trucks at parent company Kleenheat’s Kwinana production facility south of Perth. The firm will then deliver the fuel to a custom-built storage and regasification facility in Esperance.

The LNG supplier says the facility will have the capacity to power the town for 25 days.

Horizon Power said in separate statement it aims to launch the power plant in January 2022.
