Mitsubishi Power partners with Damietta LNG to enhance power supply reliability and availability

Mitsubishi Power, a power solutions brand of Japanese Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI), has signed a long-term service agreement (LTSA) with Egyptian liquefied natural gas (LNG) producer Damietta LNG to enhance the reliability, efficiency and availability of power supply and protect LNG production at the plant.

Damietta LNG is one of two LNG export plants in Egypt with a capacity to produce up to five million tons of LNG per year and is a long-term customer of Mitsubishi Power in Egypt.

Under the new agreement, Mitsubishi Power will undertake the parts, repairs and services for five Mitsubishi Power H-25 gas turbines installed at the facility, located in New Damietta Port in the northern region of Egypt.

Damietta LNG will also benefit from Mitsubishi Power’s warranties and extended service support, to enhance and drive performance and efficiency.

Additionally, Mitsubishi Power will provide its suite of intelligent solutions TOMONI, a customizable suite of digital power plant solutions fueled by analytics and turbine operating and monitoring data.

Commenting on the agreement, Javier Cavada, President and CEO of Europe, Middle East and Africa at Mitsubishi Power said: “It is a great honour to partner with Damietta LNG as we build the future of energy transition, using one of the cleanest and most efficient fuels.

“In the year when Egypt is hosting COP27, this agreement is even more vital as it helps to ensure energy security, not only for Egypt, but beyond its borders to the rest of the world where Damietta LNG exports to.”

Khalid Salem, President of Middle East and Africa at Mitsubishi Power, added: “We are proud to partner with Damietta LNG, a pioneer of Egypt’s LNG sector, a cornerstone of the country’s economic growth. We celebrate a new LTSA agreement, 16 years after our first one, which attests to our ongoing commitment to provide Damietta LNG with reliable and efficient power supply and support them in producing sustainable, clean energy, for many years to come.”
