Ocean Power deploys PB3 PowerBuoy in North Sea for Premier Oil

first_imgPB3 PowerBuoy will serve as an autonomous intelligent platform for the Premier Oil-operated Huntington field by monitoring the local environment and alert ships of the field’s safety zone Image: The latest deployment of a PB3 PowerBuoy at Premier’s Huntington field in the central North Sea. Photo: courtesy of Ocean Power Technologies. Ocean Power Technologies (OPT), a US-based wave-energy technology provider, has deployed its PB3 PowerBuoy wave energy device in the North Sea for Premier Oil.Deployed at the Premier Oil-operated Huntington field, the buoy will serve as an autonomous intelligent platform to deliver communications and remote monitoring services.PB3 PowerBuoy, by harvesting energy from the waves, generates power continuously to on-board payloads or equipment on the seabed. The device also offers data transfer and communication in real-time to remotely located shore facilities.PB3 PowerBuoy to be evaluated at the Huntington fieldThe autonomous platform will be evaluated for its capabilities of monitoring the local environment. Besides, it will alert ships of the Huntington field’s safety zone as a possible solution to assist with their decommissioning related operations in the future.Ocean Power Technologies president and CEO George Kirby said: “We are excited to be supporting Premier in their decommissioning activities with our PB3 PowerBuoy, which delivers a reliable autonomous solution for surveillance and monitoring.“This deployment is the culmination of the tremendous effort and dedication of the entire OPT team in close collaboration with Premier.”The deployment of PB3 PowerBuoy at the North Sea field begins a nine-month lease, which will be based on meeting of various acceptance criteria in the first three months. The lease also has an option to extend it beyond nine months along with a purchase option.Aberdeen-based Oil & Gas Technology Centre is supporting the use of PB3 PowerBuoy as an autonomous intelligent platform by co-funding the project and by providing technical input to its monitoring requirements.The deployment of the buoy follows an agreement signed by Ocean Power Technologies and Premier Oil in January 2018 to study the feasibility of using it for decommissioning operations in the North Sea.As part of the agreement, the PB3 PowerBuoy is expected to be mainly used for site monitoring and surveillance to avoid instances of vessel intrusion and disturbance of remaining subsea infrastructure. By connecting to subsea control modules, the buoy will also be assessed for its ability to monitor well pressures and temperatures.Premier UK business unit manager Paul Williams said: “This is a great opportunity to prove new technology which will enable us to minimise the environmental impact of our decommissioning programmes, whilst maintaining flexibility to deliver maximum economic recovery from our fields.“Assuming success, we will look at the potential to deploy this technology on other assets and for different purposes, both in the UK and further afield.”last_img read more

first_imgMOL and DSME have been jointly developing this “Cryo-Powered Regas” system to enhance fuel consumption efficiency and reduce CO2 emission of FSRU AIP certificate acquisition (from right: MOL Nakano Executive Officer, Kawagoe Senior Managing Executive Officer). (Credit: Mitsui O.S.K.Lines) Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, Ltd. (“MOL”; head office: Tokyo, Japan; President & CEO: Junichiro Ikeda) and Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering Co., Ltd (“DSME”; head office: Geoje, Korea; President & CEO: Sung Geun Lee) have jointly obtained “Approval in Principle (AIP)” from Bureau Veritas for the design of a new cold energy use regasification system, “Cryo-Powered Regas”, for Floating Storage and Regasification Unit (FSRU).MOL and DSME have been jointly developing this “Cryo-Powered Regas” system to enhance fuel consumption efficiency and reduce CO2 emission of FSRU.For the “Cryo-Powered Regas” system, a cold power generation technology based on Organic Rankine Cycle will be implemented in the FSRU regasification process.The “Cryo-Powered Regas” system, which MOL and DSME obtained the AIP this time, will enable to utilize the LNG cold energy as power generation by adopting the Organic Rankine Cycle in the FSRU regasification process. The system is targeted to reduce the fuel gas consumption and CO2 emission for FSRU approximately 50% by recovering approx. 70% of the power consumption in the regasification process at maximum rated regas flow rate.Organic Rankine Cycle system itself is a proven technology that has been utilized in multiple onshore LNG terminals for around 40 years. This will be however the world’s first case to adopt the system for FSRU. Source: Company Press Releaselast_img read more

Plug Power announces meaningful progress in hydrogen vertical integration strategy

first_imgIn line with this green hydrogen strategy, Plug Power is also pursuing the acquisition of an electrolyzer company Plug Power is in advanced negotiations to acquire United Hydrogen. (Credit: Pixabay/Adam Radosavljevic) Plug Power Inc. (NASDAQ: PLUG), a leading provider of hydrogen engines and fueling solutions enabling e-mobility, is pursuing transactions to acquire United Hydrogen Group Inc. and an electrolyzer technology platform company. Both acquisitions are in line with Plug Power’s overall green hydrogen business strategy to have over 50% of hydrogen be green by 2024 and, if successfully completed, are expected to enhance Plug Power’s capabilities in hydrogen generation, liquefaction and logistics business.Plug Power is in advanced negotiations to acquire United Hydrogen. Plug Power owns a convertible bond in United Hydrogen, which could represent over 30% equity ownership on a converted basis. United Hydrogen is the first independent company that brings a full suite of experience in production, distribution and logistics of liquid hydrogen, similar to industrial gas companies. If completed, the acquisition is expected to be accretive immediately and to have a meaningful positive impact on Plug Power’s cost of hydrogen, especially as the Company goes into 2021 and beyond.Today, United Hydrogen produces 6.4 tons of hydrogen daily with plans to increase to 10 tons daily in the near future, and with goals of further expansion. This 6.4 tons of daily liquid hydrogen generation capacity has a low carbon footprint as it uses by-product hydrogen from chlor alkali plants. Plug Power’s hydrogen vertical integration strategy is designed to make hydrogen fuel ubiquitous while controlling fuel cost and turning this into a cash flow generating business.“Plug Power will continue to work with its existing suppliers and also look to build more strategic partnerships as the Company’s demand for hydrogen is expected to increase substantially,” said Andy Marsh, Plug Power CEO. “Plug Power projects its hydrogen demand to increase four-fold to over 85 tons of hydrogen a day by 2024 – up from over 27 tons per day today. In addition, the Company plans for over 50% of that to be green hydrogen.”In line with this green hydrogen strategy, Plug Power is also pursuing the acquisition of an electrolyzer company. If the acquisition is completed, this technology platform is expected to provide Plug Power access to a range of electrolyzer products from 100kW to 1MW+. In addition, Plug Power’s manufacturing scale and experience is expected to allow for rapid scaleup of this product line. Plug Power has a growing pipeline of opportunities with its customers where the value proposition works well with electrolyzer technology today. In addition, this technology is expected to allow for Plug Power to expand its addressable market opportunity into other industrial applications. Leveraging electrolyzer and low-cost renewable power is key to a green hydrogen economy and is in line with our stated goal of having over 50% of hydrogen to be green by 2024. According to Bloomberg New Energy Finance, the cost of green hydrogen is expected to decline by over 50% by 2030.Marsh continues, “We expect that both of these acquisitions would provide Plug Power with comprehensive skill sets in the entire hydrogen value chain and pave the way for going from low-carbon to zero-carbon hydrogen as we continue to focus on building the hydrogen economy.”Plug Power has not yet entered into a definitive acquisition agreement with either acquisition target and both transactions are subject to the completion and execution of customary definitive documents and satisfaction of customary closing conditions. While Plug Power cannot guarantee that either acquisition will be completed, based on the current state of negotiations and transaction process, the company expects both acquisitions can be completed by the end of the second quarter of 2020.

‘Sales and rent-back’ scandal firms thrown out of TPO in March

first_imgHome » News » ‘Sales and rent-back’ scandal firms thrown out of TPO in March previous nextRegulation & Law‘Sales and rent-back’ scandal firms thrown out of TPO in MarchTwo companies facing High Court proceeding and freezing orders were reported by TPO to Trading Standards at the start of lockdown, The Neg can reveal.Nigel Lewis15th July 202001,272 Views Two companies exposed by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) for taking advantage of financially distressed home-owners through unfair ‘sale and rent-back’ deals had been trading illegally for some time, The Property Ombudsman (TPO) has confirmed.The London-based companies and individuals involved are London Property Investments (U.K) Limited (LPI), NPI Holdings Limited (NPI), Daniel Stevens (the sole director and shareholder of both companies) and his father Anthony Kafetzis.All now face proceedings in the High Court but it has also emerged that the companies involved were thrown out of TPO on 30th March this year for non-payment of fees and were reported to Trading Standards.The schemes being run by LPI and NPI are said to have affected dozens of home owners many of whom lost hundreds of thousands of pounds despite already being in considerable debt.Both companies offered to help home owners remain in their properties by providing seemingly miraculous deals that enabled them to clear their debt, keep their home and suspend mortgage payments for up to five years.Higher interestIn reality the loans were replaced with higher-interest mortgages for greater amounts than their original debt and required restrictive covenants to be registered at the Land Registry, preventing the owners from selling their homes at a later date. LPI organised the new mortgages while NPI often offered to buy the properties and then rent them back.TPO says its logo has subsequently not been removed from the companies’ websites. The FCA has now secured an interim injunction preventing the companies’ schemes from continuing and has frozen 17 residential properties worth £3.9 million and personal assets worth £867,770.The Property Ombudsman TPO FCA July 15, 2020Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?
