3.5 MW Project to Provide Emergency Power During Electric Outages for Flagship Asset
HOUSTON, May 11, 2021/PRNEWSWIRE/ – Enchanted Rock announced today that Raven Butene-1, LLC has awarded Enchanted Rock a contract to provide managed power resiliency for the Raven Ethylene-to-Butene-1 processing facility located in Baytown, Texas. Enchanted Rock’s ultra-clean and quiet natural gas-powered managed resiliency microgrid is now providing full facility emergency power to prevent interruptions to plant operations caused by power outages. The microgrid project was commissioned in March 2021.
The Raven plant, a flagship project of Arcanum Infrastructure, LLC, is a facility with long-term fee-based offtake agreements with commitments from multiple Butene-1 buyers. Butene-1 is a linear alpha olefin (LAO) used as co-monomers in the production of various types of polyethylene plastic. The Raven facility is designed for dedicated on-purpose Butene-1 production from the processing of ethylene (an available derivative of natural gas) to meet anticipated growth in the polyethylene and associated markets.
