GE received an order from AE Energia for fast, digital power in Angola. The order includes seven TM2500 mobile aeroderivative gas turbine generator sets, services agreements and digital solutions for PRODEL, the state-owned company responsible for power production.
The TM2500 units will be installed in Namibe, Huila and Cuando Cubango provinces and will be capable of providing the remaining 200 megawatts (MW) of power for the government to achieve a targeted one gigawatt (GW) of electricity by end of 2018. The announcement comes on the heels of AE Energia and GE’s ongoing work together at the Soyo 750 MW combined cycle power plant, as well as six units of GE’s 2016 TM2500 project in Angola being connected to the grid earlier in April.
GE will provide the generating equipment, installation, commissioning, fuel treatment solution, spares and electrical balance of plant to PRODEL. The order’s multi-year service agreements for up to nine TM2500 generator sets will support optimum performance, efficiency and reliability of the equipment for a period of six years.
