Galileo Technologies operates a new virtual LNG pipeline in Argentina

Inspenet, 1 marzo 2023

The company Galileo Technologies implemented a new virtual Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) pipeline, nine Cryobox units that produce 120 tons of Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) per day to supply a power generation plant in Mendoza, Argentina.

Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG), through modular and micro-scale solutions, is presented as a great alternative for the needs of companies. In this context, Galileo Technologies implemented a new Virtual Gas Pipeline™ that supplies LNG to a thermal power plant in the Cuyo region.

The liquefaction plant is located on the land of the Transportadora de Gas del Norte (TGN) company, next to the “La Mora” compression plant. The nine Cryoboxes are connected to the TGN pipeline, operating 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and produce approximately 120 tons of LNG per day.

Through the Virtual Gas Pipeline™, the Methax thermal power plant is supplied uninterruptedly, a 40 megawatt (MW) generation plant, located in the town of Luján de Cuyo in the province of Mendoza.

Juan Ojanguren, vice president of Galileo Energía SA, explained: “Our technology allows gas to be liquefied directly in the well, satisfying the needs of customers, and then transported in cryogenic isotanks along the country’s routes. We are proud to operate in the Cuyo region, where we know that we are ensuring the electrical energy that is needed continuously with the cutting-edge technology that characterizes us,” he said.

With cryogenic isotanks, the Virtual Gas Pipeline™ system is in charge of transporting energy by route. In this way, with micro-scale LNG solutions, consumers who are not connected to traditional gas pipeline networks can be reached.

In addition, the possibility that the company can transport the fuel to and from remote places, means that it can also reduce the environmental impact and lower the operating costs of the companies.
