Snam and SIAD: agreement to develop small-and mid-scale natural gas and biomethane liquefaction plants

May 2021
Snam, one of the world’s leading energy infrastructure operators, and SIAD, a leading chemical group in the production and supply of industrial gases and in the Engineering, Healthcare, LPG and Natural Gas sectors, have signed a framework agreement to start a technological collaboration in the small-scale and mid-scale liquefaction sector. The aim of the agreement is to foster the use of LNG and Bio-LNG as alternative fuels for sustainable mobility and other end uses.

The agreement aims to build small- and medium-sized plants for the liquefaction of natural gas and biomethane on a global scale, on behalf of third-party customers.

The plants proposed by Snam and SIAD will be modular and standardised, with capacities ranging from 50 ktpa (kilo-tonnes per year) to 100 ktpa in the case of small-scale plants and from 200 ktpa upwards for mid-scale plants.

The plants designed by Snam and SIAD use Italian technology, based on an energy-optimised cryogenic nitrogen cycle through the use of two machines (expanders/compressors). These plants allow methane to be transformed from a gas to a liquid state and represent an ideal solution to enable energy transition on global markets thanks to their price competitiveness. The savings compared to a traditional solution can be as much as 30% of the cost of the plant.

As part of the collaboration between Snam and SIAD, a project will be launched in Campania in 2021, with a capacity of 50 ktpa (small-scale), which has already obtained European funding. The plants, which will be operated by Snam, will also ensure the security of LNG and Bio-LNG supply to other regions of Southern Italy, shortening the chain between supply and end users and serving a rapidly growing market. LNG trucks have registered quite an increase in Italy in the last five years from fewer than 100 to about 3,000 units and there are now around 90 filling stations.

Thanks to their versatility, liquefaction plants, in addition to fuelling sustainable mobility, will also be functional for other uses, such as converting power generation from diesel to natural gas and some energy-intensive industrial processes.

Vahterus Cleaning Methods – Keep your process running with our Plate & Shell Heat Exchanger

January 2021
Vahterus Plate & Shell Heat Exchangers are individually designed for each client’s specific application. As part of the design, fouling is taken into consideration, as well as the customer’s knowledge and experience of the process. A correctly designed Plate & Shell heat exchanger has a highly turbulent flow. This turbulence creates a high wall shear stress, which helps to keep the exchanger free from fouling, and most of the 60,000 heat exchangers produced over 30 years at Vahterus have never required cleaning. In rare cases, fouling cannot be avoided, but several Plate & Shell cleaning methods can be used. The method is chosen based on the type of fouling. For the most difficult fouling challenges, Vahterus has developed new methods. Deeper access can be achieved through removable flow director design and the capacity to stretch the plate pack, which opens up the channels for easier cleaning. The fouling product can be removed using a chemical bath, high pressure water cleaning or soda blasting.

Methods for cleaning:
– Back brushing
– Chemical cleaning
– Steam cleaning
– Mechanical cleaning
– Soda blasting
– Pyrolysis
– Ultrasonic cleaning

Liquefied Biomethane is a reality in Italy thanks to The SIAD Group working with Vulcangas and Iveco

December 2020
Italy starts the production of biomethane. In the last few days, in the province of Lodi, work on the first agricultural LNG production plant has been completed.

The project has brought together companies from an all-Italian supply chain: the SIAD Group, a chemical company specialising in the production and supply of gas; Vulcangas, a company that distributes LPG for both domestic and automotive use; Iveco, a manufacturer of industrial vehicles; and Lucra 96, a farm in the province of Lodi where the innovative plant is located. It is all the result of a year’s work, now able to produce up to 3 tons of liquid biomethane per day.

By sharing its consolidated know-how in the technical and natural gas sector, in addition to the drive for innovation in the engineering field, SIAD has ensured a significant contribution through its Group companies: Tecno Project Industriale has developed the biogas purification unit (upgrading), while SIAD Macchine Impianti has developed the system for transforming biomethane from gaseous to liquid state, a fundamental step for its distribution ; finally, SIAD Spa manages the supply of nitrogen which is essential in the liquefaction process.

The supply chain, 100% “made in Italy”, is all part of CIB, the Italian Biogas Consortium: each subject, by pooling experience and expertise in its specific sector, has worked in synergy, with the shared objective of creating a project that will give a strong boost to the decarbonisation of transport, promoting the transition from an economy based on the use of fossil fuels to a more sustainable one, all in line with European Green Deal policies.

Biomethane, produced by anaerobic digestion of biomass, is similar in composition to methane. Used mainly in road transport, it can ensure a high reduction of CO2 emissions into the atmosphere compared with fossil methane.

This first plant is therefore of great strategic value and represents a further endorsement of a virtuous circle: Italy, relying on internal production of biomethane, which is less subject to sudden supply interruptions, will be able to start offering company fleet vehicles an alternative to importing from abroad. A more sustainable solution, also economically.

NEW 3-PIECE METAL SEATED BALL VALVE FOR HIGH TEMPERATURES

November 2020
Penta is pleased to announce the development of a new series of
metal-seated ball valves with typical 3-pieces construction.
The new model will be suitable for temperatures up to 400°C and pressure
classes up to ANSI 600.
As with any other 3-pieces ball valve, it will be possible to dismount
the central part of the body without dismounting the pipe connections in
order to make a maintenance but, differently than any other 3-pieces ball
valve, the central part of the body can be pressure tested before
reassembling it on the piping system to verify the seat and stem
tightness.
The new series will be available with Pentafite metal seats, Stellite,
Chrome Carbide, Tungsten Carbide hard faced ball and seats, as well as
standard Peek, RPTFE and TFM soft seats.
It will be possible to add a 100mm stem elongation to move the operator
away from overheated body and increase safety against fugitive emissions.

Vahterus – Plate and Shell Heat Exchanger: LNG in the spotlight

June 2020
Our customers are changing energy source from heavy fuel oil to Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG), which is becoming an increasingly popular fuel in marine and onshore applications and in power generation.

The rich possibilities offered by LNG have encouraged our partner to undertake extensive R&D work to understand the special features of heat transfer with cryogenic fluids. For an engineer, it’s always exciting to see the extremes, for example in temperatures, like using liquid nitrogen at temperatures of -180°C to test our heat exchangers in an environment that’s equal to LNG vaporising conditions.

In these conditions, the materials, the welding quality, as well as heat-transfer efficiency of our exchangers are rigorously tested. That has been our focus this spring. In this special issue, you can read about a larger series of cryogenic experiments in our Test Lab and about FEM simulations that help us to continuously improve the constructions used in the cryogenic environment.

Green Energy “Made in Italy”

April 2020
Italy’s first liquefied natural gas (LNG) coastal depot, built by Depositi Italiani GNL S.p.A., will become operational in 2021. Located in the Port of Ravenna, the depot represents an outstanding opportunity for Italy, a new source of supply of LNG (Liquefied Natural Gas), essential to reach the country’s greenhouse gas emission reduction targets, especially in the heavy-duty and maritime transport sectors.

The facility will have a capacity of 20,000 cubic meters of LNG and an annual handling capacity of more than 1 million cubic meters of LNG, which will be used as alternative sustainable fuel in the heavy-duty and maritime transport sectors: the facility’s capacity will enable it to handle enough LNG to supply at least 12,000 trucks and approximately 50 ferries every year. It is estimated that during the life cycle of this project, which is expected to start operating in the second half of 2021, it will prevent the production of 6 million tons of CO2.

SIAD MI was chosen to design and install a SMART LNG system to re-liquefy evaporated gas (Boil-Off-Gas – BOG) from the tanks of the coastal depot. Once reconverted into a liquid state through a nitrogen recycling refrigeration system, the retrieved gas will be re-introduced into the depot’s tanks, with zero emissions into the atmosphere, through a closed circuit that has no impact on the environment.

SIAD MI is also involved in the provision of cryogenic compressor packages – BOG compressors – to be installed to manage the Boil-Off-Gas during the unloading stages of LNG cargo ships, when LNG is transferred from the ships’ storage tanks to the depot’s tanks.

PSHE for high-pressure geothermal power generation application

Septemeber 2016

In 2011, Queensland Geothermal Energy Centre of Excellence (QGECE) in Australia was looking for compact and robust heat exchanger solution for a lab environment geothermal power generation system. The Queensland Geothermal Energy Centre of Excellence was established in 2009 in Pinjarra Hills, Brisbane, Australia. The purpose of the research centre was to assist the uptake of geothermal power generation.

Vahterus and Q-boss worked closely for this project. “They were successful in obtaining the contract after an internal review process. A key aspect of the review was the ability to provide compact, cost-effective, high-pressure heat exchangers suitable for the required duty. During the tendering and supply process Vahterus and Q-Boss were very supportive, and provided assistance and information as required. In operation, the heat exchanger units have performed as required,” says a QGECE Research Officer.
The fully welded structure and the compact size of Vahterus PSHE proved to be a winning combination: it utilizes the thermal capabilities of corrugated plate technology and housing the platepack with a pressure vessel (shell) to create an innovative and robust heat exchanger solution.

As an end result of the close cooperation between Vahterus, Q-boss, and the customer, the units were successfully put into operation. More recently, the system had a piping upgrade, the team worked effectively again to allow the upgrade to proceed rapidly.
