Magellan Aerospace Lands Combined Cycle Plant Order
Magellan Aerospace has signed an agreement with the Republic of Ghana's Ministry Energy, through the Canadian Commercial Corporation, for the provision of a turnkey combined cycle power generation plant in Ghana. The contract is valued at US$187 million and is scheduled to be delivered over a 24 month period by Magellan's operating division in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada.
The project is targeted to produce 132 MW of electric power for Ghana and will be situated near the port of Takoradi. Under the contract, Magellan will procure four gas turbines for packaging as a combined cycle that will have dual fuel capability, running on either liquid fuel or natural gas, once available to the site.
The Canadian Commercial Corporation took the role of prime contractor, signing the commercial contract with Ghana's Ministry of Energy and another with Magellan in order to facilitate the delivery of the power plant. The four 25 MW gas turbines will be suppled to Magellan for the project by Zorya-Mashproekt in Ukraine and will be packaged in Canada.
The consortium of HPI Technologies and S&W Energy Solutions, both of Houston, Texas, U.S.A., will supply the required steam turbines as well as balance of plant EPC services.
