Gas supply company pumps out millions of gallons of coolant
Gas supply companies are pumping out millions more gallons of antifreesze coolants than they are buying for the plants that they’re building.
The National Gas Association (NGAA) said in a statement Friday that the company is building a $500 million plant in South Carolina that will supply cooling systems for power plants.
The company also plans to build a $100 million plant at a site in New Jersey that will be used to cool cooling systems in power plants across the country.”NGAA will continue to invest in infrastructure to meet our energy needs and continue to be vigilant in ensuring our supply system remains secure and reliable,” said Jeff Anderson, the NGA’s director of product management.
Gas companies have long struggled to keep coolant coolant systems running properly, a fact that’s been on the minds of energy companies as they consider their plans to supply cooling to the grid.
Some gas plants have been using antifrozen coolant as a backup to the gas that the plants are using, which means the gas is constantly on top of the coolant.
The problem is that the gas plants aren’t using antiferromagnetic refrigerants that have been used to keep the coolants running properly.
The coolant has to be constantly refrigerated before it can be used again, but the gas plant doesn’t have refrigerant.
That means the coolers, when they run out of coolants, are subject to overfill and leak, the companies said.
The gas company will also build a new plant in Tennessee that will provide cooling for the electrical system at the plants it’s building, according to the statement.
The Tennessee plant will be operated by a new company called Gentry.
Gentry will build the facility, which will house three plants, for the NGHAA.
That’s a significant expansion of the plant that was built in 2007 and will provide gas and electric services to the Tennessee power grid.NGAA says that the new gas facility will be located in Tennessee, and the company has signed a contract with a gas supplier to provide electricity to the facility.
