Upcoming MiniLNG terminal in Antigua to supply ship bunkering in future

26 Apr 2022

INOXCVA, an India-based cryogenic equipment and solutions provider, on Tuesday (19 April) said it has been awarded a contract by Caribbean LNG Inc. for “Design, Engineering & Supply” on a turnkey basis for the terminal. 

The MiniLNG receiving and regasification terminal, to be set up in Antigua, West Indies, will be capable of provisioning for liquefied natural gas (LNG) distribution and ship bunkering in the future. 

Caribbean LNG Inc. is a Joint Venture between Eagle LNG Partners (Eagle LNG) and Antigua Power Company (APC). The terminal will also provide natural gas for APC’s on-island 40 MW power plant.

It is expected to be a future template and anchor plant to service power and other energy requirements in the Eastern Caribbean Islands.

“We are excited and honoured to have been given this opportunity to set up this prestigious ‘MiniLNG Terminal’s with Vacuum Insulated Storage Tanks and a regasification system to feed the gas-based power plant,” said Vijay Kalaria, Global Head – LNG at INOXCVA.

“Caribbean LNG’s terminal will be capable of receiving LNG through smaller ships while provisioning for LNG distribution and ship bunkering in the future.

“Our innovative design and modularized concept will ensure minimum site activity and enable faster implementation of the project. All major critical equipment to be installed in the MiniLNG terminal will be manufactured in INOXCVA’s state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Kandla, India.”

This project comes soon after the successful commissioning and operations of a similar Multifunctional MiniLNG Terminal set up by INOXCVA in Scotland.

“Caribbean LNG and our shareholders, Eagle LNG and APC, are proud to work with INOXCVA on this state-of-the-art modular terminal for Antigua and Barbuda, that serves as a template for our plans throughout the Eastern Caribbean, and hub for cost-effective, low-carbon fuel supply to the country and region,” said Francis Hadeed, Director of Caribbean LNG Inc.

“With secure, affordable, sustainable, and reliable supply from Eagle LNG’s facilities in Jacksonville, Florida, USA, and the unmatched experience and know-how of APC, Antigua and Barbuda will benefit from the use of this lower-carbon fuel creating opportunities for the country, and the Eastern Caribbean region.”

“Moving to gas also enables the greater integration of renewable generation in the country, and the introduction of bio-LNG and hydrogen into the fuel mix to further reduce carbon footprint and meet committed goals for the country on carbon reduction.”
