GE’s Grid Solutions and Power Conversion businesses has won a contract from Baker Hughes, an energy technology company, to provide the high-voltage (HV) equipment and the energy management system (EMS) to support Venture Global LNG’s Plaquemines liquefied natural gas (LNG) export facility in Louisiana.
GE’s Grid Solutions contracts includes the design, engineering, delivery, and commissioning of 145 kV gas-insulated switchgear (GIS), integrated protection and control systems, as well as high-voltage power transformers for the Plaquemines facility. GE Power Conversion will supply the hot redundant EMS, as PQ 1 (25 000 IOs) & 2-A (15 000 IOs), interconnected to guarantee the plant’s electrical resilience.
The combined high-voltage equipment and EMS will allow the power generated at each plant to be distributed with accuracy and reliability to the load centers at each step in the gas liquefaction process.
GE’s Grid Solutions and Power Conversion businesses received their first contract in 2019 from Baker Hughes for the supply of high-voltage equipment, systems and EMS for Calcasieu Pass, Venture Global’s first LNG facility.
