Siemens said it has received its first order from Panama for six SGT-800 gas turbines for the flexible combined cycle power plant in Panama.

Siemens said the customer is the Chinese general contractor Shanghai Electric Group, which is responsible for building the overall plant, while the end customer is the independent power producer Martano.

Commissioning for the power block is scheduled for the fall of 2020, Siemens said in a statement.

The scope of supply from Siemens includes a power block in a multi-shaft configuration, consisting of six SGT-800 industrial gas turbines of single lift package design, six gas turbine generators, one SST-600 industrial steam turbine, an SGen6-100A-2P steam turbine generator, six VOTSG heat recovery steam generators, as well as a control system for the gas turbines and a SPPA-T3000 control system for the steam turbine.

The new plant will be built near the seaport of Colón on the Caribbean coast and be operated with liquefied natural gas (LNG).

The facility is being developed to supplement fluctuating renewable energy sources and is in line with the government’s plans to expand wind and solar energy and to increase the share of renewables in the energy mix to 70 percent.

4th Annual Upstream West Africa Summit 2018

In June 2018, Senegal will play host to the No.1 Annual B2B Upstream Oil & Gas event, which will bring together the senior decision makers from across the prolific West Africa region to discuss the trends and challenges currently facing the Oil and Gas industry.

Since the discovery by Tullow Oil in 2007 of the Jubilee Field in Ghana, the Upstream sector has refocused its efforts to explore similar plays around the entire West and North West African coast. These efforts were rewarded with Cairn Energy’s prolific discovery in 2014 followed by Kosmos’ in 2015. The West Africa region has the industry’s spotlight firmly focused on further unlocking the potential of this largely underexplored region.

Companies that will be looking toward further unlocking the deepwater hydrocarbon potential of West Africa include: PETROSEN, BP, Kosmos Energy, Cairn Energy, FAR, Total E&P, Premier Oil, Shell, Tullow Oil along with the Ministries and key solution providers.
