GE Completes Gas Turbine Upgradation at Tanzania’s Songas Ubungo Power Plant

Posted on : Wednesday , 4th September 2019

Songas Ubungo Power Plant supplies more than 20 percent of the grid connected power in Tanzania; upgrade of three GE’s LM6000PA and one LM6000PC Aero derivative gas turbines Improved Plant Efficiency and Reliability.

GE and Songas today disclosed they have successfully completed upgrades to the whole GE fleet of three LM6000PA and one LM6000PC gas turbines at the Songas Ubungo Power Plant in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. These technology upgrades will level up the power plant’s efficiency and reliability, enabling Songas to manage the plant in the most economical way possible.
 
“We are very delighted with GE’s execution because it was completed safely and ahead of schedule, with great assurance and consistency across the four LM6000 units,” said Nigel Whittaker, managing director, Songas Ltd. “The successful completion of this project not only improves Songas’ performance levels, but through the extra reliable supply of electricity, continues to provide to the economic development of the country, making a significant difference in the lives of Tanzanians.”  
 
GE’s upgrade of the four LM6000PA gas turbines to LM6000PC undoubtedly improves the current LM6000 fleet. GE’s SPRINT (SPRayINTercooling) technology, installed on two of the four units, increases gas turbine performance, improves power flexibility, enhances the combustion system, improves fuel efficiency, extends maintenance intervals for the combustor, hot section and major overhaul and lowers maintenance costs.
 
“Over the past 15 years, Songas and GE have associated on the Ubungo power plant, and we’re excited to help enhance operations, increase capacity, and deliver the principles of safety first, quality foremost and operational excellence,” said Elisee Sezan, CEO for GE’s Gas Power business in sub – Saharan Africa. “Our goal is to bring long-term value to our customers and their power plants, like Songas, to maintain it in the most efficient way possible which will at the end contribute to Tanzania’s economic and social development.”
 
The Ubungo power plant contributes more than 20 percent of the grid connected power in Tanzania. It involves four GE LM6000 gas turbines, which have been operational since 2004. In 2017, GE signed a multiyear agreement to upgrade gas turbines at the Songas Ubungo power plant in Tanzania.  GE’s LM6000-PF dual fuel gas turbines power the 150-MW Kinyerezi power plant, which also has a multiyear agreement with GE for the long-term, reliable operation of its power plant.
