The power plant will meet the baseload capacity of the LNG terminal, and will offer high reliability and, according to Rolls-Royce, availability of more than 98 per cent. The core equipment for the power plant will include three 9.6 MW gensets based on the 20-cylinder Rolls-Royce Bergen B35:40 gas engines. These medium-speed gas engines have high availability and low operating costs.

Mr SP Singh, CEO of Dhamra LNG, said: “We are delighted to have a Rolls-Royce company supplying us with the critical power system for our upcoming terminal in Odisha. Rolls-Royce selection followed a competitive tendering process and we are reassured by its extensive experience in the area of power systems.”
