Verbrec contracted for Snapper Point EPC Project

Verbrec, Snapper Point

Verbrec is undertaking design and construction works on the Snapper Point Engineer, Procure, Construct (EPC) project for Epic Energy, South Australia.

Subsidiary LogiCamms is carrying out concept study, front-end engineering design (FEED), detailed design, procurement, construction and commissioning for the Snapper Point Pressure Reduction Metering Station (PRMS) on the Lefevre Peninsula.

The project will support the connection of the Moomba Adelaide Pipeline System (MAPS) to a 154 MW gas turbine peaking power plant near Snapper Point at Outer Harbour in South Australia.

Works include but are not limited to: an above-ground connection at the MAPS/SEA Gas interconnect pipeline; metering and control equipment, a cathodically-protected lateral pipeline to the new PRMS; and a fenced compound.

Verbrec’s southern general manager Tony Petruzzelli said that this project will help secure electricity for South Australians and provide lower emissions compared to diesel generators.

“Since 2013 LogiCamms has worked on numerous projects for Epic Energy, we have a strong working relationship built on working openly and honestly,” said Mr Petruzzelli.

Verbrec’s engineering and project delivery teams put together their gas facilities, pipeline and piping design experience to successfully complete the FEED and early engineering works early in 2021

“This important project will help secure electricity for South Australian’s and provide lower emissions compared to diesel generators,” said Petruzzelli.

Verbrec chief operations officer Matt Cooper said the company is excited to play its part in this ground-breaking energy project.

“[This project] shows how gas and renewable energy can complement each other by keeping the power on when demand outstrips supply,” said Mr Cooper.
