H2020-FETOPEN-2016-2017: Looking for research partners for a project proposal on waste energy recovery upon liquid natural gas regasification

Country of Origin: Portugal
Reference Number: RDPT20170621001
Publication Date: 21 June 2017

Summary

Portuguese research center hosted by the University, with expertise in cryogenics and thermodynamics engineering, aims to contribute to the increase of efficiency of liquid natural gas (LNG) regasification processes. Looking for industrial partners and research and development institutions interested in applying for H2020-FETOPEN funds allowing to develop and improve the engineering for energy recovery aiming at field testing and evaluation.

Description

The aim of the project is to implement a pilot installation for further studies on the thermodynamic cycles with a cold source of 111K and a selection of fluids identified in a previous study so that it is possible to move to the stage of proof of concept where engineering challenges can be identified and tackled, and guidelines derived for later implementation at industrial plant scale.
An Industrial partner in the field of LNG regasification is sought as well as Industrial or R&D partners with know-how on cryogenic thermal engineering.

Deadline for the call : 27 september 2017
Deadline for EOIs : 31 august 2017
FET Open framework conditions: no maximum number of partners from at least 3 countries.

The foreseen project duration is 3 years.

Advantages and Innovations

Liquid natural gas is being regasified by heating it up with seawater, rejecting all the cold energy to the sea — This happens in all the 37 plants of Europe. 
A simple rankin e-type cycle could be associated to a liquid natural gas regasification plant, working upon appropriate fluid, saving more than 3 MW of waste in a plant like the one in Sines The authors of this thermodynamic analysis are keen to join a consortium for further development of the energy waste recovery in such plants.

Expertise sought

Industrial partners and research and development institutions are sought in order to apply for funds in H2020-FETOPEN to develop and improve the engineering for energy recovery.
Industrial partner with expertise in LNG regasification is sought as well as Industrial or R&D partners with know-how on cryogenic thermal engineering.
Partners shall have previous experience in developing pilot-scale plants, their own established network of equipment suppliers, and technical staff to implement modifications and servicing.

Stage Of Development

Concept stage

Stage Of Development Comment

So far, the research center  had modeled the thermodynamics of the actual situation of the regasification plants and performed optimizations on the cycles and fluids to be implemented.

Requested partner

Industry / research and development institution / entreprise.
The partner is expected to develop, or assist in the development, of a pilot-scale plant, bringing to the project its know-how, and desirably their established network of equipment suppliers, and technical staff to implement modifications and servicing on the pilot plant.
