New Fortress Energy is continuing work on the construction of an LNG receiving and regasification terminal in the port of Pichilingue, Baja California Sur, Mexico.
Marine work is underway at the site of the terminal and all necessary permits have been obtained for the onshore construction of the power plant. Additional equipment, materials, and workers will be deployed to the site to expedite completion of the project.
The facility is being constructed with power generation to provide low-cost electricity and truck loading bays for the supply of LNG to local hotel and industrial customers.
New Fortress chairman and CEO Wes Edens says: ‘With the project will underway, we are closer to introducing more affordable and cleaner energy for Baja California Sur. We have witnessed how LNG supply can become a catalyst for energy diversification and economic development and look forward to seeing similar results.’
José López Soto, director of port authority administration of Baja California Sur, adds: ‘The LNG terminal at Pichilingue port is an important infrastructure project that will undoubtedly bring significant benefits to Baja California Sur.’
