Renergen (RLT) is preparing the cold boxes at its Virginia gas project in South Africa as part of phase one commissioning activities.

In preparation of gas acceptance in the coming week, the cold box units are being purged and pre-cooled using liquid nitrogen.

This process is advantageous as it purges the system of any oxygen rich air, reducing the fire risk during start up, according to Renergen.

While fire protection, instrument air systems and various smaller subsystems have been completed and commissioned, further testing is underway as part of the commissioning process.

The conduction oil system is the next major item to be completed for process unit start up.

“The team is being extremely thorough and diligent in making sure every step in the
commissioning process is done correctly,” said CEO, Stefano Marani.

“Seeing the plant at cryogenic temperatures is such an amazing sight, knowing that this is soon to become the first commercial plant of its kind in South Africa”.

Shares were trading in the grey at $3.55 at 11:20 am AEST.
