  • GE's technology will power the overall liquefaction system Baker Hughes is providing for the Plaquemines export facility, Venture Global's second project to bring U.S. liquefied natural gas(LNG)to the global market
  • The contract builds on previous collaboration with Baker Hughes for Venture Global LNG's Calcasieu Pass project

GE’s Grid Solutions and Power Conversion businesses (NYSE:GE) have been selected by Baker Hughes, an energy technology company, to provide the high-voltage (HV) equipment and the energy management system (EMS) to support Venture Global LNG’s Plaquemines liquefied natural gas (LNG) export facility in Louisiana.

GE’s Grid Solutions contracts includes the design, engineering, delivery, and commissioning of 145 kV gas-insulated switchgear (GIS), integrated protection and control systems, as well as high-voltage power transformers for the Plaquemines facility. GE Power Conversion will supply the hot redundant Energy Management System (EMS), as PQ 1 (25 000 IOs) & 2-A (15 000 IOs), interconnected to guarantee the plant’s electrical resilience.

The combined high-voltage equipment and EMS will allow the power generated at each plant to be distributed with accuracy and reliability to the load centers at each step in the gas liquefaction process.
