Siemens Energy will provide six industrial gas turbines and boil-off gas compressors to the Total-led Mozambique LNG project.
The company was chosen by CCS JV, which is building the Mozambique plant, to supply its SGT-800 industrial gas turbines. Siemens will also provide four centrifugal compressors for boil-off gas.
Siemens intends to deliver the gas turbines in the second half of 2021 and the first half of 2022. The company should deliver compressors in 2021.
“Mozambique LNG is the country’s first onshore LNG development project and will play a key role in meeting the increasing demand for energy in the Asia-Pacific, Middle East, and Indian sub-continent markets,” said Siemens Energy Industrial Applications’ executive vice president Thorbjoern Fors.
“We look forward to helping Total drive toward the lowest possible plant emissions profile and contributing to its goal of delivering clean, reliable energy to customers across the globe.”
The CCS JV is made up of McDermott, Saipem and Chiyoda.
More than 400 of the SGT-800 turbines have been sold, it said, with more than 8 million fleet operating hours. The 54 MW turbine has a gross efficiency of 39%. The unit also comes with a dry low-emissions combustion system, Siemens said.
The provider said the compressors came with an inlet guide vane system. This allows power consumption to be optimised based on changes in operational parameters such as inlet temperature and outlet pressure.
This June, Siemens and Total agreed to work together on developing greener LNG technologies. The companies will work on areas such as electric driven compression trains, single and double mixed refrigerants and improvements in onsite power generation.
In related news, augmented reality provider Librestream announced Siemens Energy had chosen its “Connected Worker” platform. This allows teams to remotely inspect, diagnose and maintain equipment such as turbines.
