CCS JV Selects Siemens Energy For LNG Project
By DJ Slater14 October 2020
CCS JV, a joint venture between Saipem and McDermott, selected Siemens Energy to supply emissions-reducing power generation equipment and boil-off gas (BOG) compressors for the Mozambique LNG Project in the Cabo Delgado province on Africa’s East Coast.
The project, led by Total E&P Mozambique Area 1, includes the development of offshore gas fields in Mozambique’s Area 1 and a liquefaction plant with a capacity over 12 million tpy.
As part of the contract, Siemens Energy will supply six SGT-800 industrial gas turbines that will be used for low-emissions onsite power generation.
Siemens Energy will also supply four centrifugal compressors for BOG service. These compressors feature an inlet guide vane (IGV) system that optimizes power consumption based on changes in operational parameters, such as inlet temperature and outlet pressure.
The gas turbines will be delivered in the second half of 2021 and the first half of 2022. The compressors are scheduled for delivery in 2021.
The order follows a recent agreement between Total and Siemens Energy to advance new concepts for low-emissions LNG production. As part of the contract, Siemens Energy is conducting studies to explore a variety of possible liquefaction and power generation plant designs, with the goal of decarbonizing LNG facility development and operation.
