Strandline Resources Limited announced its selection of Woodside and EDL for a hybrid gas and renewable power solution at the Coburn mineral sands project in WA’s Mid-West.
The Woodside and EDL Joint Venture (WEJV) will develop for Strandline a 27MW integrated trucked LNG, storage, and power station facility, comprising gas and diesel back-up generators combined with state-of-the-art solar and battery technology.
WEJV’s solution will be the world-first trucked LNG to hybrid renewable microgrid project. EDL will bring its turnkey expertise to the Project’s power station and LNG storage and re-gasification facilities, while Woodside will supply LNG from its Pluto LNG truck loading facility (pictured above) near Karratha, WA.
“The WEJV solution provides Strandline with a long-term safe, reliable, and highly efficient energy solution for Coburn,” said the company in a statement.
The company also described the project as an innovative, low-cost, low-emission solution that will capture energy supply cost savings relative to the Definitive Feasibility Study (DFS) published in April 2019.
Strandline is expecting to finalize a 15-year power purchase agreement over the coming months preparatory to the commencement of construction.
