"A Transition Towards Carbon Neutrality – What Part Does Natural Gas Play?”
Process Engineer, Fuel Gas Supply Systems
Wärtsilä
Summary of Essay

By 2040 a significant part of the global electricity production should be carbon neutral. An
issue with wind and solar is that the electric output almost never matches the demand. Natural
gas powered quick ramp rate power plants act thus as a good complement. In the event of
overproduction of electricity by the renewables, energy must be stored. For this power-to-gas
plants producing methane, which is fully interchangeable with natural gas, is an interesting
alternative. A potential next step could be remote plants solely producing synthetic methane
from renewable energy. This could lead to carbon-neutrality also for applications which are
not feasible to electrify, such as maritime transport. Until a full transition has been made,
natural gas acts as an environmentally sound fuel and investments in technology and
infrastructure made today can be utilized also in the future.

C2. Tools for Preventing the Delay of Future Project (Managing Workforce Locations & Improvement of Safety Awareness)

One of the major obstacles the EPC companies are facing is the making of a feasible catch-up plan that can mobilize sufficient additional manpower in the event of project delay. The problem lies in the construction inaccurate reports for productivity and actual manpower work at site. To overcome this obstacle the authors has developed a data logging system that can acquire accurate workforce location data. Using this system, project team can obtain their own accurate workforce data. In this results, contractor will accumulate and analyze real-time data through this system.

C2. Advanced Challenges in Artic Module Logistics in the Yamal LNG Project

JGC Corporation, a part of joint venture contractor, is constructing a large-scale LNG plant at the Yamal Peninsula, in the Arctic. The key to success of this venture to overcome the difficulties posed by the 2 meter thick "sea ice" in the arctic is how we should confront the logistics challenge and deliver the super-large modules to the site safely. Our achievement in delivering all 156 modules with a total weight exceeding 400,000 metric tons without damage, and in opening the Northern Sea Route as a module transportation segment, represents a remarkable feat in both the shipping and project business.
