MAN Energy Solutions to Supply MDT Gas Turbine in Nigeria

Image

A company known as MAN Energy Solutions is considering delivering three power generation packages in Nigeria with the proven single-shaft MGT6000 gas turbine technology for about 20 MW to a power plant, which supplies heat and power to BPL oil & gas facilities 30 miles southwest of Port Harcourt in Nigeria.

It was gathered that 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.

“We have seen the exceptional quality and performance of MAN MGT6000 gas turbines and are confident in placing our first order for them. This is the beginning of a long-term partnership between CAI and MAN and we plan to work together on other power projects in Africa, which is CAI’s key market,” said Mukund Kavia, CAI Chairman.

“We are honoured to collaborate with CAI on this important power generation project in Nigeria. This latest contract award and the recently commissioned MGT gas turbines trains in China prove that the benefits of MAN’s technology solution are being recognized by the market,” says Sebastian Könning, Project Manager Sales for Gas Turbines at MAN Energy Solutions.

Dr. Sven-Hendrik Wiers, Vice President Gas Turbines at MAN Energy Solutions, stated that, “Both low emissions and high efficiency are becoming increasingly important for gas turbines in the market. With the state-of-the-art MGT technology, our company is able to fulfill these demands and provide a gas turbine family optimized for decentral, flexible and at the same time highly-efficient power generation solution with minimum emissions.”

Growing The Rural Communities Through Sustainable Tourism

By Olukayode Kolawole The responsibility to grow our rural communities is a shared one. In fact, majority of the tourism sites in Nigeria are located in most of the rural areas. Developments in these areas are not as fast-paced as urban communities. Every year, rural development always finds its way to the government’s shopping list but somehow doesn’t make it to the priority list. Reasons for this might include, but not limited to, insufficient budget, lack of proper planning and measurable goals. Most of the tourism sites in the country domicile within these rural communities. It is therefore surprising why

What Pentecostal Pastors Have in Common With Politicians

By Michael Owhoko, PhD The disparity of roles between ecclesiastics and politicians is generally expected to translate to differences in values, lifestyles and creeds, but this pattern has been disrupted and bridged in Nigeria by materialism.  Moral disconnects, lust and insatiability for money, wealth, fame, influence and power have conspired to bring the men of God to the level of politicians.  This is evident in the Pentecostal ministries where some founding pastors and general overseers {GOs} no longer exhibit ascetic dispositions and restraints from material allures.
