Swiss engineering group ABB has been selected by Glenfarne Energy Transition’s subsidiary, Texas LNG, to provide core automation and electrical equipment for its proposed LNG export terminal in the Port of Brownsville, Texas, US.
As part of the memorandum of understanding (MoU), the two companies have agreed on a framework for ABB’s investment in the project, which will have a capacity of around four million tonnes of LNG per annum.
Glenfarne Energy Transition CEO and founder Brendan Duval said: “Texas LNG’s mission to be one of the lowest-emitting LNG export terminals on the planet requires the sector’s top expertise and innovation.
“By partnering with ABB, we are confident that Texas LNG will be the most efficient and environmentally sensitive US LNG facility.”
Texas LNG plans to start project construction shortly after closing financing in 2024.
The LNG terminal project is due to start exports in late 2027 or early 2028.

ABB Energy Industries president Brandon Spencer said: “ABB’s integrated offering of automation, electrical and digital solutions uniquely help minimize capex and maximize the performance, production and plant availability of LNG and clean fuel projects.
“We look forward to collaborating with Texas LNG to explore how technological advances can help enhance LNG production, given the vital role LNG can play in global energy security.”
Last month, Baker Hughes was selected to supply gas compression technology equipment for the Texas LNG export terminal, which is expected to create more than 1,200 jobs during the construction phase and over 100 new full-time jobs.
As part of the contract, Baker Hughes will supply gas compression technology equipment including electric motor drives for the terminal.
Baker also has a framework agreement to make a pre-final investment decision in the late-stage development of the project.
