Amidst the pandemic, GE executed service works at four LM6000 aeroderivative gas turbines at the Songas Ubungo Power Plant in Dar es Salaam and ensured the continued delivery of up to 150 megawatts (MW) of electricity from the units to the national grid.
When you’re selecting a turbine to provide one-third of a country’s electricity supply, every MW counts.
To support Senegal's increasing renewable energy demand, GE and West Africa Energy teamed up to create the country's largest combined-cycle plant. Learn more.
After a storm-caused roof collapse, the Metahara Sugar Factory accepted help from GE’s FieldCore team to repair their damaged turbines; despite extensive unit damage, the FieldCore team got the turbines back online in 20 days, ending a critical situation.
GE will supply two 9E.03 gas turbines, one STF-A200 steam turbine, three A39 generators, two heat recovery steam generators (HRSG), and additional balance of plant equipment for the Cap des Biches combined cycle gas turbine power plant, which is expected to generate 300 MW, nearly 25% of the power consumed in Senegal.
