HR Wallingford to Secure Future of Power Supply in Ghana

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 3/20/2014, Location: Africa

UK-based maritime engineering consultants HR Wallingford are supporting Quantum Power’s development of an offshore liquefied natural gas (LNG) import and regasification facility at Tema, Ghana. The facility will include a floating storage and regasification unit with transfer from conventional LNG carriers.

HR Wallingford is carrying out an advanced feasibility study, which includes metocean, ship mooring and operational assessments, incorporating fully dynamic mooring analysis. Applying world-leading expertise in maritime engineering, HR Wallingford’s engineers and scientists are working closely with Quantum Power to provide an effective solution that will maximise operability of the facility and ensure safe and efficient transfer of LNG.

The LNG import facility will deliver much needed natural gas to the Ghanaian power sector, displacing the more expensive light crude oil that is currently used. This will enhance the security and economic viability of the country’s power sector. Quantum Power aim to deliver first gas by early 2016 in volumes sufficient to fuel up to 1,000 MW of base load generation.
