MAN to supply gas engines of Oman LNG power plant
MAN Energy Solutions has won the order from Oman LN) to equip a new power plant with nine MAN 51/60 gas engines.
The power plant will be located in Qalhat, southeast of Muscat on the Gulf of Oman, and will provide 120 MW of power to the existing LNG facility of Oman LNG.
It will replace an existing gas-turbine plant, MAN Energy Solutions said in its statement.
As fuel, the new plant uses gases derived from the liquefaction process, which can contain high inert components in the fuel and, therefore, may have much lower calorific values.
Hajo Hoops, senior sales manager at MAN Energy Solutions, said, “compared to the existing plant, our engines will significantly reduce fuel consumption and GHG emissions of Oman LNG’s power plant.”
