LNG production facility opens in Italy
DH Industries BV has announced that the first LNG production facility in Italy with Stirling technology was officially opened on 27 September.
The facility was engineered by Hysytech Srl and is part of the Store and Go project under the EU subsidy Horizon 2020. The gas purification and liquefaction unit takes in methane gas produced on site in a methanation unit, purifies it to the required composition, and liquefies it into LNG at 2 barg. The LNG will then be used as transportation fuel.
The facility is located in Puglia, Italy, and is expected to act as a technology demonstration unit. DH Industries and its partner Hysytech are currently in contact with a number of possible customers who intend to liquefy biomethane or natural gas.
