Welcome to Polar Energy
Polar Energy was formed in 1986 for the purpose of consulting, engineering and constructing
cogeneration facilities that met the newly enacted PURPA regulations for independent power
production in the United States. Using a broad spectrum of generating technologies the
company developed inside the fence projects for hospitals, defense facilities and other local
and state governmental institutions.
With the availability and cost of fuels being the principal driver for the development of power
generation projects combined with the need to reduce emissions, Polar has ventured into the
area of fuels supply and new technologies for the provision of fuels production such as Gas to
Liquids and emulsified coal for coal transportation and gasification. Also the development of
methods to bring stranded gas resources to market has become a key function of Polar in
recent years, particularly from offshore locations. The company is a leader in the development of floating
and offshore GTL facilities, gas to methanol and LNG liquefaction facility design.
The application of new power generation technologies, the development of new fuels and their
production, whether they be coal, gas, oil or biomass derived, including their delivery to market
with cost and emissions being paramount combines to be the focus of Polar in the age of high
oil prices and the quest to reduce the effects of global warming.

Consultants & Developers to the Energy Industry
In the early 1990's, Polar broadened it's
horizons to the development of power projects
worldwide and in particular the design,
construction and operation of floating power
plants. Projects were developed in Columbia,
Ecuador, the Philippines, the Caribbean and
Nigeria. Polar Energy was responsible for the
design, construction and installation of the
world's largest floating power generation
facility now operating in India.
Polar Energy has recognized that the
transportation of fuels is a key cost factor in
total fuel cost to the end user, particularly by
sea, and its eventual storage and distribution at the buying country. Polar's consulting group has led the way in the development of large tankships to transport products to market, including floating storage, coastwise distribution, regasification of LNG and the transport of compressed synthesis gas and coal as a liquid by barges.
