The Energy-to-Power concept is one way of exploring and advancing towards more sustainable fuels, and the path to a zero-emission future which demands reliability, efficiency, and flexibility.
Currently, Stena Teknik and Delta Offshore Energy (DOE) collaborate on the DOE-project in Vietnam, using the gas-to-power (GTP) process to convert energy to power. The project solution is comprised by three assets:
Work done/ongoing is Full FEED engineering for all three assets and interface between them ( Main contractor is Moss Maritime AS) with class approval ( Bureau Veritas), 6 week model testing at MARIN in Netherlands (August 21, ), Mooring Simulations done by Svitzer.
Recent attention has been focused on the challenges of importing and re-gasifying liquefied natural gas (LNG) into Europé. The Nordic climate poses a challenge to the gas-to-power process, as traditionally seawater is used to heat floating gas to turn it back into gas – which is not possible in Northern Europe during winter. A solution to this would be to burn some of the gas to heat the rest, but this technology is not feasible on a regular FSRU (LNGC with Regas), due to the ship motions.
Stena Teknik is working together with Stena Power and LNG ( SPALS) in developing solutions with the aim to provide a fast track terminal solution for the import of gas into Europe. The solution is using the Self-Installing Regasification Platform (SRP) which is resting on the sea bottom and has no motion. This gives an advantage compared to other solutions, and a lot of work is done to adapt this technology.
