Siemens Energy has been selected by CCS JV, a joint venture between Saipem and McDermott, to supply emissions-reducing power generation equipment and boil-off gas compressors for the Mozambique LNG Project.

Led by Total E&P, the project includes the development of offshore gas fields in Mozambique’s Area 1 and a liquefaction plant with a capacity in excess of 12 million tonnes per year.

As part of the contract, Siemens Energy will supply six SGT-800 industrial gas turbines that will be used for low-emissions onsite power generation.

Thorbjoern Fors, Executive Vice-President for Siemens Energy Industrial Applications, said, “Mozambique LNG is the country’s first onshore LNG development project and will play a key role in meeting the increasing demand for energy in the Asia- Pacific, Middle East, and Indian sub-continent markets.” 

“We look forward to helping Total drive toward the lowest possible plant emissions profile and contributing to its goal of delivering clean, reliable energy to customers across the globe.”

Siemens Energy will also supply four centrifugal compressors for boil-off gas (BOG) service.

The gas turbines are slated for delivery in the second half of 2021 and the first half of 2022. The delivery of the compressors is scheduled for 2021.
