Published on: 

80% emissions reduction expected

Siemens Energy is the single solution supplier for the all-electric Woodfibre LNG project near Squamish, in British Columbia, Canada. The LNG facility will be sized for 2.1 million tonnes per year and utilize renewable hydroelectricity for an 80% reduction in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.


Siemens Energy’s is including all equipment associated with the main refrigeration trains, compressors, synchronous motors, variable speed drives, converter transformers, harmonic filters, and numerous powerhouses. The main refrigeration compressor trains are one of the components of the liquefaction process that produces the LNG that will eventually be stored in tanks and then transported to LNG tankers for shipping abroad. The project is expected to reach completion in 2027 and begin commercial operation by September of that year.
