Singapore: LNG Terminal to Develop Data Center

and Biomolecular Engineering and the leader of the project team.A five-member team from NUS Engineering, Keppel Data Centers and SLNG will jointly develop a prototype of a new cooling medium that can achieve two key functions: firstly, to efficiently store and carry cold energy from the Singapore LNG Terminal to the various data centers, and secondly, to be circulated within the cooling loop in each data center to perform effective cooling.This novel technology, called Semiclathrate Thermal Energy Carrier System (ScTECS), can potentially enable data centers to improve their power usage effectiveness

Ice Studied for Alaska LNG Terminal

ASL Environmental Sciences has a contract for a three-year metocean-ice study program in Cook Inlet, Alaska for the proposed Alaska LNG Project terminal site. This turnkey metocean program includes program management, a PSO (protected species observer), vessel, HSE lead, data processing and analysis and engineering inputs. During the summer and fall of 2014 ASL deployed 3 Ice Profiler/ADCP moorings close to Nikiski, Alaska on the Kenai Peninsula. Each mooring consisted of an Ice Profiler, ADCP, CT and OBS Turbidity and was mounted in ASL’s designed bottom frame or a taut-line mooring. Eight
