CCS JV , a joint venture between Saipem and McDermott , recently selected Siemens Energy to supply power generation equipment and boil-off gas compressors for the Mozambique LNG Project in the Cabo Delgado province on the country’s east coast. The project, led by TOTAL E&P Mozambique Area 1, includes development of offshore gas fields and a liquefaction plant with a capacity in excess of 12 million tons per year.

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. The SGT-800 has a rating of 54 MW and a gross efficiency of 39 per cent. It is equipped with a robust dry low-emission combustion system. Siemens Energy will also supply four centrifugal compressors. The gas turbines are due to be delivered in the second half of 2021 and the first half of 2022, and delivery of the compressors is scheduled for 2021.
