Chart Industries, Inc. has received a $10.4m order for the liquefier, compressor, and tank equipment content on a utility-scale liquefied natural gas (LNG) project in the Northeast US.

The project, Towanda, is a 50,000 gallon per day nitrogen cycle liquefier in Northeastern Pennsylvania. 

Chart is providing the liquefier and the compressor for the plant which is expected to be actively producing by the end of 2019. 

“Our unique position of providing equipment and process for liquefaction, storage and transport across the LNG cycle supports the utility-scale LNG and small-scale LNG customers,” said Jill Evanko, Chart Industries’ CEO.

“We expect this LNG application to gain momentum as utility companies seek alternative, standardised, cost effective solutions to the increasing demand on power grids.”

In the fourth quarter of 2018, Chart booked an $8.4m order for the first LNG project for NiCHe LLC, a Dominion Energy/REV LNG joint venture. 

Chart is working with ODIN as the EPC for both of the projects.

The small-scale and utility-scale LNG sector is projected to grow to between 76 million and 95 million tonnes by 2030.
