Gas compression system will converse natural gas, reduce CO2
Turboden S.p.A., part of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd. (MHI), has received an order for two sets of 14 MW binary cycle power generation equipment, which will be used as part of a gas compression system to improve the efficiency of the GASCO Dahshour gas compression station in Egypt. The equipment uses Turboden’s Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) system.
Egyptian Natural Gas Holding Co (GASCO) will install the gas compression system that includes the power generation equipment, which will generate 28 MW of power using the waste heat from four existing gas turbines. Siemens Energy will also supply an additional gas turbine and 20 MW electric-motor-driven compressors to the system. The new configuration will improve the system’s compressed gas capacity and overall efficiency to improve CO2 emissions.
In addition to creating 192 GW of power per annum, the configuration will conserve more than 2.3 Bcfy (65 X 106 m3/y) of natural gas. The system will also reduce 120,000 t/y of CO2 equivalent.
