NEC Selects Supplier
20 October 2022
Northeast Energy Center (NEC) and Chart Energy & Chemicals selected Siemens Energy to supply a gas/electric hybrid drive system for NEC’s LNG plant being built in Charlton, Massachusetts. The NEC project will be the first LNG facility in the world to feature a system of this type, which offers a significant advance in efficiency no matter the weather or temperature. Siemens Energy will serve as the single-source supplier of the integrated drive, providing all rotating equipment and associated control systems.
ODIN has supported the design baseline, initial project renderings, siting assistance, DPU testimony and expert witness and budgetary pricing.
ODIN President and CEO, Chris Barros, commented stating that “ODIN acted as conceptual engineer for NEC over 4 years through EFSB approval. The Siemens system technology was the best choice to support maximum efficiency of the process.”
