Rolls-Royce to power India’s Dhamra LNG terminal

Rolls-Royce has secured a contract to deliver a 29 MW gas-powered plant for the Dhamra LNG import facility on India’s east coast.

The Dhamra LNG terminal joint venture, consisting of Indian multinational conglomerate Adani Group and France-based Total, awarded the contract.

The deal includes complete engineering, procurement and construction of the power plant, Rolls-Royce said in statement on Tuesday.

The plant will meet the baseload capacity of the LNG terminal and will offer reliability and availability of more than 98%, according to the firm.

Additionally, the core equipment for the plant will include three 9.6 MW gensets, based on the 20-cylinder Rolls-Royce Bergen B35:40 gas engines.

Designed for a capacity of 5 mtpa, the Dhamra terminal will initially have two tanks of 180,000-cbm capacity, each.

When commissioned in the end of 2021, Dhamra LNG will be the second import termnal in India that is powered by Rolls-Royce Bergen medium speed engines.

Rolls-Royce has earlier supplied and commissioned a 28 MW power plant in 2018, running on LNG fuel to the Indian Oil terminal at Ennore, Tamil Nadu.
