Mitsubishi Power wins Damietta LNG job

Mitsubishi Power, a power solutions brand of Japan’s Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, said it had signed a long-term service agreement with the operator of the 5 mtpa Damietta LNG plant in Egypt.

Under the deal, Mitsubishi Power said it would enhance the reliability, efficiency and availability of power supply, and protect LNG production at the plant located in New Damietta Port on the Mediterranean coast, about 60 km northwest of Port Said.

Mitsubishi Power will undertake the parts, repairs and services for five of its H-25 gas turbines installed at the facility.

Damietta LNG, one of two LNG export plants in Egypt, is a long-term customer of Mitsubishi Power in Egypt and this latest service agreement follows Mitsubishi Power’s first LTSA for the units which was signed in 2006, it said.

As part of the deal, Damietta LNG would benefit from Mitsubishi Power’s comprehensive warranties and extended service support, while the firm said it would also provide its customizable suite of digital power plant solutions.

Mitsubishi Power did not reveal the price of the contract.

The Damietta plant started exporting LNG again in February last year following a deal between Egypt’s EGPC and EGAS, Italy’s Eni, and Spain’s Naturgy.

It stopped operations in 2012 due to declining domestic production, but new finds such as Eni’s giant Zohr field in the East Mediterranean allowed the partners to restart the plant and ship the first cargo in February.

Following Naturgy’s departure, Eni owns 50 percent in SEGAS, the owner of the liquefaction plant, while EGAS owns 40 percent, and EGPC holds 10 percent.
