New Fortress is developing a 0.4 MTPA LNG-to-power project, including the 300 MW Puerto Sandino LNG Power Plant and an offshore LNG receiving, storage and regasification terminal off the coast of Puerto Sandino. In February 2020 New Fortress Energy signed a 25-year power purchase agreement with Nicaragua’s electricity distribution companies to supply power produced from around 0.4 MTPA of LNG. The project start-up is expected in the second half of 2021.[2]
