About DNG Power

DNG Power provides gas-to-power solutions responding to SA’s energy needs. We supply secure, cheaper and stable alternative energy (LNG), in line with the country’s national commitment to transition to cleaner sources of energy to support the economy while solving the current electricity generation crisis. We have the rights to import LNG to support the development of power generation capacity as per the country’s IRP, which seeks to add more generation capacity by 2030 in order to restore energy security. 

Using natural gas as a source of power gives South Africans a reliable alternative to power the economy. It also presents the country with a cleaner source in its energy mix to ensure that various technologies support each other in supplying electricity reliably 24/7.  

Natural gas is not just important for industry but it can do more for the domestic use. It can be used for water heating, clothes drying, cooking, and mood-setting fireplaces. It can also be used outdoors for barbecuing, gas lighting, and even to heat your swimming pool or hot tub. 

The environmental, as well as social and economic benefits, that come with the use of LNG includes helping South Africa meet its targets in reducing greenhouse gas emissions, driving economic growth and thus improving the lives of all its citizens.  

DNG Energy will utilise gas infrastructure that comprises pipelines as well as virtual solutions. Underground pipelines mean there is no disruption of supply due to storms or power outages while virtual solutions ensure that natural gas can reach even far-flung areas where pipelines are not available.  

DNG Power Projects

We are actively developing gas-to-power plants in Komatipoort, Malelane, Coega, Mossel Bay and Saldanha Bay. These plants will help provide a solution in delivering gas-powered generation as quickly as possible to serve South African communities’ energy needs.

Khensani  in Komatipoort

Gratitude

Project specifications: 

  • Khensani power plant is a 620 MW Open Cycle Gas Turbine (OCGT) Power facility and associated infrastructure. The project is situated in the Mpumalanga Province, 10 km north of the Kruger National Park 45 km east of Malelane.  
  • The initial phase will entail the development of the following primary activities: 
  • Phase 2: Future development 
      • 620MW Open Cycle Gas Turbine (OCGT) and/ or Reciprocating Engine Power with a footprint of 1 hectare. 
      • Approximately 1km gas pipeline from ROMPCO gas pipeline to the power station. 
      • ±1 km 132kV overhead powerline from the power plant to the existing Eskom Komatipoort substation. 
      • Extension of a Busbar at the Eskom Komatipoort substation; 
      • Above ground natural gas storage tanks with a capacity of 500m3 and bulk storage facility. 
      • Establishment of an 8m access road to be used as both an access road during construction and service road during the operational phase. 
  • The site is within Ehlanzeni District Municipality under the jurisdiction of the Nkomazi Local Municipality in the Mpumalanga Province of South Africa.

Mpenyisi  in Malelane

Humility

Project specifications: 

  • Mpenyisi power plant is a 620 MW power facility using Open Cycle Gas Turbine (OCGT) and/or reciprocating engine and associated infrastructure. 
  • Mpenyisi gas-to-power facility will be developed in two phases. The first phase involves the development of the 620 MW OCGT power facility, above-ground gas pipeline from the existing ROMPCO gas pipeline to the power plant, and the above-ground storage tanks with a capacity of 500m3 and bulk storage facility. Then the development of approximately 0.5km 275 kV overhead powerline from the power plant to the existing Eskom Khanyazwe substation.  
  • The second phase of the project involves the expansion of the capacity of power to 1000 MW by using Combined-Cycle Gas Turbines (CCGT). 
  • The site will be situated inside an urban area, on portion 1, 4, and 116 of Malelane 389 FP Farm which is approximately 2 km from the Kruger National Park and 18 km from the Matsulu Township.  
  • The site is under the administration of Nkomazi Local Municipality, Ehlanzeni District Municipality, in Mpumalanga province. 

Basani in Mossel Bay

Light

Project specifications: 

  • Basani power station is a 310 MW Open Cycle Gas Turbine (OCGT) and/ or Reciprocating Engine power facility and associated infrastructure within the existing industrial area, situated approximately ±15 km away from the Mossel Bay town, which falls within the jurisdiction of Mossel Bay Local Municipality in the Western Cape Province.  
  • The project will be developed in two phases: The first phase involves the development of a Floating Storage Regasification Unit (FSRU) that will moor North East of the SPM and an undersea and above-ground gas pipeline to connect to the power station and the above-ground storage tanks with a capacity of 500m3 and bulk storage facility. 
  • The power station will also have the construction of approximately 3.5km x 400 kV overhead powerline from the power plant to the existing Gourikwa 400/132kV substation. Alternatively, it will connect to the Eskom Proteus 400/132kV substation, which is approximately 10km from Gourikwa.  
  • The second phase of the project involves the expansion of the capacity of power to 1000 MW by using Combined-Cycle Gas Turbines (CCGT), the building of a permanent mooring of a Floating Storage Regasification (FSRU) to the North East of the SPM and the undersea pipe to connect land, and the introduction of more natural gas tanks at the current PetroSA site.  
  • This site will be located within the old agricultural field between the N2 freeway and the existing PetroSA facility (Mossgas). There is a small dam that lies along the edge of the property alongside the N2. 

Isihau in Saldanha Bay

Light

Project specifications: 

  • Isihau power plant comprises the following activities that will be undertaken in three phases as follows: 
      • Phase 1: development of 310MW Sunshine gas-to-power plant and associated infrastructure. 
      • Phase 2: construction of a regasification and storage tank with a capacity of 500m3 in Saldanha Port. 
      • Phase 3: development of a gas pipeline to Ankerlig; and a tank storage in Ankerlig 
  • The development will be undertaken in Saldanha Bay, situated on the northern shore of Saldanha, approximately 106km north-west of Cape Town within the Western Cape Province.
