GE secures three orders for AGP technology

GE’s Power Services business has secured three orders to install its Advanced Gas Path (AGP) solution.

GE’s Power Services business has secured three orders to install its Advanced Gas Path (AGP) solution.

The solution will be installed at projects operated by Saudi Cement, Dubai Electricity & Water Authority (DEWA) and Ohgishma Power.

The deal with Saudi Cement marks the first AGP installation in the cement industry.

According to the transaction, GE will upgrade Saudi Cement’s three GE 6B gas turbines at its Hofuf plant in Saudi Arabia. The AGP installation is expected to improve power output and plant efficiency, as well as reduce the need to draw power from the national grid.

“GE’s Advanced Gas Path upgrade solution will allow us to improve efficiencies and become more self-sufficient in power production.”

Saudi Cement Mohammed AlGarni CEO said: “Power supply is both a key input and one of the major costs in our manufacturing process. Reliable, efficient electricity supply is thus essential to the continuous operations of our facility, as well as our competitiveness.

“GE’s Advanced Gas Path upgrade solution will allow us to improve efficiencies and become more self-sufficient in power production.”

The AGP upgrade is also expected to improve the combined output by 16.9% across the three turbines.

Under the terms of the $52m agreement signed with DEWA, GE will install the technology on three GE 9E gas turbines at the Jebel Ali Power and Desalination Station.

With this installation, GE aims to further enhance energy production, improve efficiency and reduce carbon emissions in the future. The upgrade is scheduled to take place next year.

The agreement with Japan-based Ohgishma Power will see an upgrade of three GE 9F gas turbines with AGP, DLN2.6+ and OpFlex technologies at its facility in Kanagawa.

The upgrade is expected to improve efficiency by 2.5% and reduce emission levels to 15ppm nitrous oxide.
