The largest high-temperature Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) system ever built will be installed at the GASCO Dahshour gas compressor station in Egypt. Turboden’s ORC unit (28 MWe) is coupled with two Siemens’ electric motor driven compressors (20 MWe) and by recovering the exhaust gas heat, it generates 192 GWh per year of fuel-free electricity.
Germany’s chemical company BASF and Siemens Energy have teamed up to accelerate the industrial use of low-carbon technologies. Several projects at BASF’s Ludwigshafen site are planned, e.g. adding a proton exchange membrane electrolyser (50 MW) to produce hydrogen and a heat pump (50 MW) to generate process steam from waste heat.
Turboden and Mitsubishi Power will provide equipment for a 29 MW binary-cycle power generation unit to be installed at a geothermal plant in Palayan on Luzon Island in the Philippines, owned by the local utility Energy Development Corporation (EDC). The order calls for project completion by the end of 2022.
General Electric has commissioned the Junliangcheng combined heat and power (CHP) plant that covers the electricity and district heating needs of over 100,000 citizens in Tianjin, China's third largest city. The 650 MW cogeneration plant, powered by GE equipment, was built in replacement of a coal-fired unit to help achieve the government's emission targets.
Siemens Energy is installing a battery energy storage system at Marsh Landing Generating Station, due operational in early summer 2021. The system can support up to three attempts to restart the 720 MW plant’s auxiliary system without the need of external power supply in the event of an outage or blackout.
