Twenty 20 Energy Systems
Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea
PPI provided the design, supply and certification of the Lightning Protection to Twenty 20 Energy Systems on the new Dirio Gas powered power station.
The Dirio Gas and Power project is expected to supply 45 megawatts of power using gas from the PNG LNG project to PNG’s capital city, Port Moresby. This is the first time that a nationally-owned company has entered into the power generation business.
This project highlighted the key benefits in using a nVent ERICO System 3000 to provide a larger area of protection given the critical infrastructure involved. The design required coordination with the fragile equipment and difficult terrain.
