Full Steam Ahead For The 'ETYFA PROMETHEAS'

Works on the ETYFA flagship project, which will supply clean natural gas to Vassilikos Power Station, continue unabated in spite of the terrible global situation because of the COVID-19 Pandemic, says ETYFA.

According to an announcement released by the company on Thursday, two vital components that have to be installed on the Liquified Natural Gas (LNG) carrier, ETYFA PROMETHEAS, are the Regassification (Regas) Module and the Power Module.

As explained by ETYFA, the Regas Module is responsible for converting the Liquid Natural Gas to a Gaseous Natural Gas state (Natgas) and deliver this gas to the Vassilikos Power Station in order to power the combined cycle turbines which generate electricity for The Republic of Cyprus. The Regas module is being installed on the bow of the ship.

To reduce further the carbon footprint in Cyprus, the China Petroleum Pipeline Company (CPP), the project’s contractor, is installing is a dual fuel power Module to drive the Regas module, as well as powering the rest of this marine giant. The power module, which will be installed on the stern of the ship, will run exclusively on LNG pumped from the cargo onboard the vessel. It has, though, the ability to switch to diesel should the need arise in an emergency.

“Once these two critical items have been installed the vessel then truly becomes a Floating, Storage and Regassification Unit (FSRU), retaining the full functions of a tradeable LNG commercial carrier,” says ETYFA.

China Petroleum Pipeline (CPP) has secured the necessary steel for the fabrication of these two modules despite the massive supply bottlenecks and record high prices that the global pandemic has created, explains ETYFA and adds that this has assisted in minimizing although not completely avoiding delays that most contractors in the marine field are experiencing due to the pandemic.

ETYFA representatives attended the steel cutting ceremony for the Regas Module on October 28, 2021. Fabrication of the Regas Module commenced immediately thereafter at the giant COSCO shipyard in China. According to the announcement, the steel cutting for the power module was completed on December 9, 2021 with fabrication, again, commencing immediately thereafter.

ETYFA mentions that “CPP made various detailed and robust plans to manage travel restrictions, area closures and other pandemic related disruptions, which have been successfully implemented and have thus far resulted in no lost work days. A considerable achievement under the current pandemic circumstances”.
