NEW YORK--(商业线) -188bet买球 新的堡垒能源公司(纳斯达克:NFE)(“新堡垒”)今天宣布,它签署了斯里兰卡政府的框架协议(“协议”),建造了一个新的离岸液化天然气(LNG188bet金宝搏手机登入)接收,存储和再扫描终端(“终端”)。该码头将位于科伦坡海岸,供气到该国的电厂,主要位于Kerawalapitiya Power Complex。

The Kerawalapitiya Power Complex consists of 300 MW in operation today and is ultimately expected to grow to over 1,000 MW by 2025.

As part of the Agreement, New Fortress will supply natural gas to the existing 300 MW Yugadanavi Power Plant and is negotiating the purchase of the Government’s 40% stake in the company that owns the power plant. This power plant is currently under a long-term power purchase agreement (PPA) to provide electricity to the national grid that extends through 2035. The plant consists of General Electric turbines and was configured to run on natural gas in combined cycle.

“We are excited to support the transition of Sri Lanka to clean, reliable and affordable energy,” said Wes Edens, Chairman and CEO of New Fortress Energy. “This investment in Sri Lanka’s first LNG terminal will advance the country’s clean energy transition and support sustainable development for this vibrant economy. This is the first of what we think will be a number of investments in power and infrastructure in the country.”

This Terminal will introduce natural gas to the country of Sri Lanka for the first time and will assist the transition to lower-carbon energy sources.

据斯里兰卡当局介绍,NFE的投资符合政府加速过渡到清洁和更便宜的能源的政策,并表示该国对投资和业务开放。

作为协议的一部分,政府将促进通过新的堡垒获得必要的许可和权利来构建LNG终端。终端预计将在2022年的下半部分开始操作。bet188体育在线育

This investment in Sri Lanka, a diverse and vibrant island nation with over 21 million people, represents New Fortress’ first LNG terminal in Asia.

The purchase of the Government’s interest in the company owning the power plant is subject to final documentation and the parties will work together to finalize their commercial agreements. New Fortress signed the Agreement with the Secretary to the Treasury and the Ministry of Finance.
