Galileo’s Cryobox to produce LNG for power generation in Argentina

Galileo's Cryobox to produce LNG for power generation in Argentina

Argentina’s Galileo Technologies said it will supply 14 Cryobox LNG production stations to fuel a new power generation plant being built in Anchoris, Mendoza Province, Argentina.

The small-scale liquefaction units will be deployed to orphan wells distributed throughout the Malargüe’s region, to supply up to 130,000 gallons of LNG per day in total.

This will make the facility, being developed by Methax, a Grupo Galileo company, immune to Argentina’s natural gas shortage during winter time and the rising costs of switching from natural gas to diesel or fuel oil.

The LNG produced on-site by the Cryobox units will be transported by road through cryogenic ISO containers from the well-heads to Anchoris, where it will be regasified.

The Methax natural gas-fired power plant will supply 40 megawatts of power alleviating the stress on transport and distribution power lines.

Galileo Technologies also expects to expand Cryobox liquefaction capacity throughout the neighbouring Vaca Muerta’s region.
