GE To Power Large Gas Processing Complex
GE Oil & Gas has been awarded a contract worth over US$200 million, by Hyundai Engineering & Construction Company (HDEC), to supply eight gas turbines and related services for the Abu Dhabi Gas Industries (GASCO) integrated gas development (IGD) project at Habshan in Abu Dhabi.
Combined, the eight GE Frame 6B gas turbine units will provide more than 250 MW of power for the Habshan 5 plant, which will have four gas processing trains and will add a total processing capacity of 2000 Million Cubic Feet (MCFD) of gas per day.
The eight GE Oil & Gas gas turbines being supplied for the Habshan 5 project are Frame 6B models, each with a power capacity of 32 MW at design site conditions. In addition, all eight units will be equipped with advanced dry low NOx (DLN) combustors for emissions control, lube oil systems and other auxiliary equipment.
The gas turbines are scheduled for shipment during the first half of 2011, with commercial operation of the Habshan 5 facility expected by the end of 2012.
