Siemens to supply equipment for Total’s Mozambique LNG

A unit of German engineering giant Siemens has won a deal to supply power generation equipment and boil-off gas compressors for the Total-led $20 billion Mozambique LNG project.

The project’s EPC contractor CCS JV, a venture between Saipem and McDermott, awarded the deal to Siemens Energy.

Siemens did not reveal the value of the contract in a statement on Wednesday.

The project includes the development of offshore gas fields in Mozambique’s Area 1 and a 13.1 mtpa liquefaction plant.

Total said previously it expected Mozambique LNG production to begin by 2024.

Other partners in the project are Japan’s Mitsui, Mozambique’s ENH, Thailand’s PTT, and Indian firms ONGC, Bharat Petroleum, and Oil India.

Six turbines and four compressors

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

The 54MW turbine rating selected for this project has a gross efficiency of 39 percent.

The turbine features a dry low-emission combustion system that enables “world-class” emission performance over a wide load range.

Furthermore, Siemens will also supply four centrifugal compressors with inlet guide vane system for boil-off gas (BOG) service.

Siemens says it would deliver the gas turbines in the second half of 2021 and the first half of 2022.

In parallel, the German firms plans to deliver the compressors during 2021. 

The equipment order comes on the heels of a recent deal between the duo to advance new concepts for low-emissions LNG production.

As part of the contract, Siemens is studying a variety of possible liquefaction and power generation plant designs. The goal is to decarbonize LNG facility development and operation.
