Dresser-Rand to deliver turbine-generator sets for Zohr offshore Egypt

Offshore staff

MUNICH, Germany – Belayim Petroleum Co. (Petrobel) has ordered three model SGT-400 industrial gas turbines and associated electrical generators from Siemens’ Dresser-Rand business.

Petrobel, a joint venture between Eni and Egypt’s General Petroleum Corp. (EGPC), is developing the Zohr gas field offshore Egypt in the Mediterranean Sea.

The order scope also encompasses a service package that includes spare parts supply and on-site maintenance. The turbine-generator sets are slated for delivery in early 2017.

Christopher Rossi, CEO of the Dresser-Rand business, said: “Following the major billion-euro power plant order Siemens secured from Egypt last June, our power generation technology will further support the nation’s efforts to grow its economy and expand its reliable energy supply.

“Our turbine-generator sets will enable Petrobel to generate approximately 20% more power than the comparable equipment offered by our competitors.”

The SGT-400 turbines, manufactured at the Siemens operation in Lincoln, England, will help supply electric power to the natural gas processing facility currently under construction. Each of these turbines is rated at an ISO-based electrical generating capacity of 12.9 MW.
