Siemens scores contract for Canadian LNG export project

A unit of German engineering giant Siemens has secured a contract to work on GNL Quebec’s planned LNG export facility in the port of Saguenay in Canada.

GNL Quebec’s parent Symbio Infrastructure said on Tuesday it has signed a deal with Siemens Energy.

Under the deal, Siemens would provide engineering services, comprehensive lifecycle equipment and technology solutions, and further carbon emission footprint reduction solutions for GNL Quebec’s “carbon-neutral” Energie Saguenay project.

In addition, the contract also includes Symbio’s subsidiary Gazoduq’s natural gas transmission line project between Ontario and Quebec.

GNL Quebec’s 10.5 mtpa LNG export plant, which would be powered by nearby renewable hydroelectricity, would get gas from Gazoduq’s natural gas transmission line.

As part of the agreement between Symbio and Siemens, the latter will provide its portfolio of “greener solutions” for rotating equipment, electrical, and digital infrastructure.

Furthermore, the duo would work together to explore green hydrogen development opportunities as a new potential investment initiative, according to Symbio.

Also, Siemens and Symbio envision the alliance “aligning with the principles included in the March 2021 energy partnership between Germany and Canada to advance their respective net-zero aspirations,” the statement said.

To remind, Germany’s Hanseatic Energy Hub, the developer of the Stade LNG import terminal near Hamburg, is looking to import liquefied natural gas from GNL Quebec’s planned facility in Canada.

The duo recently signed a strategic partnership as they plan to develop a low-carbon LNG supply chain from Canada to Germany.
