COMMENCEMENT OF HOT COMMISSIONING
Renergen is pleased to announce commencement of hot commissioning of Phase 1 of the
Virginia Gas Project.
On 10th of April the generators where synchronized and breaker to the main supply substation
was opened and tests conducted. The breaker to the two 6.6/400Kv transformers were opened
and will run on a low load condition, to allow the transformers to “soak” until operating conditions
In the following days, hot commissioning of various utility systems will commence, starting with
Air and Nitrogen. This will enable the flushing of some of the process plant areas to commence
and is anticipated to started after the easter weekend.
“The much-anticipated moment has finally arrived, and the turn-on has now commenced. Over
the coming days we will continue to update shareholders as the final commissioning milestones
are achieved. What Nick Mitchell and his team have achieved, despite the many setbacks during
construction such as COVID’s impact to manufacturing timelines, the shipping crisis on logistics,
unseasonal rainfall due to the El Niño–Southern Oscillation (ENSO) climate pattern delaying
construction amongst others, is a massive achievement. Now we have a clear path to turn the
plant on, and will keep shareholders updated on progress over the coming few weeks to first
production,” said CEO, Stefano Marani.
