Vires Energy Corporation (Vires) is planning to build a Floating LNG power plant in Batangas, the Philippines.
The project involves the construction of a 400MW (8x50MW) LNG Fired Floating power plant with LNG Receiving and Regasification Terminal. It includes the construction of a powerhouse, a substation, storage tanks and related infrastructure, the installation of generators and transformers, and the laying of transmission lines.
The LNG receiving and regasification terminal, called floating regas dock, provides a competitive alternative to floating, storage and regasification unit for smaller volumes, ranging typically from 50 to 200Mscfd (million standard cubic feet per day).
In September 2015, Vires received approvals from the Philippine Department of Energy to conduct grid impact studies.
RHR Consult services Inc. has been appointed as environmental consultant.
In January 2016, Vires signed a technology license agreement with Sevan Marine’s subsidiary HiLoad LNG AS (HiLoad) for use of its technology for a liquefield natural gas (LNG) receiving and regasification terminal. The scope of the agreement also includes design and engineering works.
Generating technology selected for the vessel will be Siemens Industrial Trent 60 WLE ISI dual fuel packaged gas turbine generator sets operating in simple cycle mode.
On February 25, 2016, Waller Marine, Inc. was awarded the Front End Engineering Design (FEED) contract. Waller Marine will also act as Owner's Engineer for Vires during the vessel's construction and installation at site.
In June 2016, Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) was prepared and public hearing was held on July 9, 2016.
On November 24, 2016, the project secured approvals from Department of Energy (DOE) to conduct grid impact study (GIS).
Study activities are underway.
