MAN’s three packages with the single-shaft MGT6000 gas turbine technology will deliver around 20 MW to a power plant, which supplies heat and power to BPL oil & gas facilities 30 miles southwest of Port Harcourt in Nigeria. The order for MAN was placed by American EPC and equipment exporter Combustion Associates Inc. (CAI). Together with Exterran Corporation, the company is responsible for the engineering, manufacturing and installation of the overall project.
The MAN turbine technology will deliver around 20 MW of power, using Dry Low Emission technology and natural gas as a low-emission fuel. The system also features a specifically modified intake air-cooling in order to guarantee a flawless operation despite the high temperatures on site. The set-up comprising three gas turbines trains enables a flexible load profile for the operator.
All trains are equipped with an ATU Box (Analytics Telemetrie Unit), which is connected to the new digital platform MAN CEON. The system collects and evaluates operating and sensor data and enables the customer to monitor the machine’s operation around the clock and easily request advice for remote support.
MAN Energy Solutions was able to meet the customer need for fast deployment – the delivery of the machines are planned for November 2019. All gas turbines are manufactured in Oberhausen (Germany) and the packaging is done at MAN’s Chinese workshop in Changzhou.
CAI’s order continues the successful story of MAN’s gas turbine business beyond the Chinese market, where recently four gas turbine generator packages have been put into operation in cogeneration plants. The Combined Heat and Power processes (CHP) replace the former coal-based plants, resulting in a significant emission reduction
