Excelerate Energy’s FSRU ‘Exemplar’ recently began operations in Bahia Blanca, Argentina.
‘Exemplar’, with a storage capacity of 150,900 cu m, will deliver LNG for the 2021 Argentinian winter season.
“We are excited to return to Bahia Blanca and continue our partnership with IEASA and YPF to deliver an energy solution that is flexible, cost-effective, and environmentally-friendly during a critical period of peak demand,” said Daniel Bustos, Excelerate’s CCO. “We are confident the ’Exemplar’ can perform again with our local Argentine crew to support the country’s energy transition and post-COVID economic recovery this winter.”
Her return comes after Excelerate had earlier won an international tender to provide seasonal regasification service at Bahia Blanca.
Excelerate developed the Bahia Blanca GasPort, South America’s first LNG import terminal, in 2008 and has also operated GNL Escobar, an LNG import terminal along the Paraná River, since 2011.
