Siemens Energy to power the world’s lowest-emission LNG facility

Above: Woodfibre LNG will be powered by clean, renewable hydroelectric power.

Siemens Energy’s scope includes all equipment associated with the main refrigeration trains, including compressors, synchronous motors, variable speed drives, converter transformers, harmonic filters, and numerous powerhouses. The main refrigeration compressor trains are one of the components of the liquefaction process that produces the LNG that will eventually be stored in tanks and then transported to LNG tankers for shipping abroad.
“LNG will play an essential role in a more sustainable future as we continue looking at ways to decarbonize the natural gas chain,” said Thorbjörn Fors, Executive Vice President, Industrial Applications at Siemens Energy.” This project is important, because it will help support the journey toward global decarbonization with exports to Asian economies currently driven by coal.”
“Woodfibre LNG is working to incorporate a sustainable approach into as many aspects of our project’s engineering and design as possible,” said company president Christine Kennedy. “This includes using safe, efficient equipment for the LNG refrigeration process – like that which Siemens Energy will supply – to build what will become the world’s lowest-emission LNG export facility.”
The project is expected to reach substantial completion in 2027 and begin commercial operation by September of that year.
