Siemens Energy to supply gas turbines and compressors for Mozambique LNG Project

Published on: 

Siemens Energy will supply six SGT-800 industrial gas turbines and boil-off gas compressors for the Mozambique LNG Project in the Cabo Delgado province on Africa’s East Coast. The project, led by TOTAL E&P Mozambique Area 1, includes the development of offshore gas fields in Mozambique’s Area 1 and a liquefaction plant with a capacity in excess of 12 million tons per year. The project will be Mozambique’s first onshore LNG development

Siemens Energy was selected by CCS JV, a joint venture between Saipem and McDermott.

The 54MW SGT-800 turbines selected for this project have a gross efficiency of 39 percent and are equipped with a dry low-emission (DLE) combustion system.

Siemens Energy will also supply four centrifugal compressors for boil-off gas (BOG) service. A key feature of these compressors is the inlet guide vane (IGV) system that allows for optimization of power consumption according to changes in operational parameters such as inlet temperature and outlet pressure.


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.
