Siemens progresses gas power projects in Africa

Siemens Energy (NYSESI) has won a contract for its gas turbine technology in Algeria while completing another such project in Nigeria.

The company will provide six F-class gas turbines for the Ras Djinet and Ain Arnat 2000 MW combined cycle power plants (CCPP) in Algeria for Daewoo E&C Co., Ltd and Hyundai Engineering Co. Ltd.
The Korean companies are building the two power plants for Sociéte Algérienne de Production de l’Electricité (SPE), the state-run energy provider in Algeria.

The power generated will supply two million homes along Algeria’s Mediterranean Coast.

The delivery from Siemens includes a total of six SGT5-4000F gas turbines, six SST5-3000 steam turbines, and six SGen5-2000H generators.

Meanwhile the company has also completed the 434 MW Geregu II gas turbine power plant in Nigeria for State-run Niger Delta Power Holding Company (NDPHC).

Siemens supplied three E-class gas turbines as well as the associated generators.

Following the Afam V and Geregu I plants, Geregu II is now the third gas-turbine power plant to be constructed by Siemens in Nigeria as a turnkey project and completed on schedule.

The scope of delivery supplied by Siemens for Geregu II included three SGT5-2000E gas turbines, three SGen5-100A generators, as well as all the electrical systems and the SPPA-T3000 control system.

By 2020, Nigeria plans to increase the country's generation capacity by five to eightfold from its current level of approximately 5 GW.
