Location: Inver Grove Heights and Mendota Heights, Minnesota
Xcel Energy's liquefied natural gas (LNG) facility in Inver Grove Heights, the Wescott LNG Plant, is used primarily for peak shaving. Our team has assisted with several improvements to plant operations and function. We have also provided services at the Sibley Propane/Air Plant in Mendota Heights.
The Sibley plant was being prepared for active trucking, which required steps — including a fire study we conducted — to meet necessary code requirements.
At Wescott, our team helped Xcel achieve improved liquefaction performance through process improvement and component modifications. We also facilitated enhancements to the plant's emergency shutdown system, resulting in full functionality and safety for the plant staff.
