GE has been collaborating with the Angolan government and other players in the private sector to help the country achieve its Vision 2025 goals. This collaboration has helped Angola explore a variety of opportunities, from new ways to generate power to modernizing the transportation sector.
Oil & Gas
GE equipped Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) turbo compression technology to Angola’s LNG Facility located in Soyo. GE Oil & Gas Angola Limited continues to invest on infrastructure such as manufacturing facility in Soyo and maintenance and services facility in Cabinda which will supply subsea and pressure control equipment to the oil and gas industry in Angola.
Strategically located at the Sonils Base, this is our primary Service Center for deep water offshore projects in Angola and Congo. Recent expansion has added subsea tree assembly and testing, and the outside area can withstand 100 ton load overhauling capacity for GE gas turbines.
