March 15, 2023 [LNGPrime] – The UK’s Dragon LNG terminal in Milford Haven will now meet a part of its electricity needs via a newly launched 10 MW solar park located at the Waterston site.

 

Built by UK-based renewable energy firm Anesco, the solar park will provide around 9 percent of the terminal’s electricity needs and will also supply energy to neighboring businesses, according to a statement by Anesco.

Anesco will also provide ongoing operations and maintenance services to ensure the installation, which comprises 18,500 solar panels, continues to operate at its optimum efficiency.

The project is a part of Dragon LNG’s plans to slash emissions and to become a net zero LNG terminal by 2029, the statement said.

Anesco claims the solar park will reduce Dragon LNG’s scope 2 CO2 emissions by around 2,500 tonnes per year.

Dragon LNG is equally owned by LNG giant Shell and a unit of infrastructure investment manager Ancala.

The terminal received its first cargo in July 2009. It consists of a jetty, two storage tanks, and regasification facilities with a maximum gas sendout rate to the UK’s transmission system of 9 bcm per year, according to its website.

Shell and Petronas have 50 percent capacity rights at the facility, each. The Malaysian company sold its 50 percent share in the facility to Ancala in 2019, but it kept a long-term throughput agreement with the terminal.
