South African company completes EPC for Mozambique gas plant
South Africa-based oil and gas equipment supplier Energas Technologies, in the fourth quarter of last year, completed the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) for Mozambique-based gas power station Gigawatt Mozambique’s high-pressure reduction and metering station (HPCMS).
“Pressure reduction and metering stations are often situated in remote locations with no or unreliable electricity supply or communication infrastructure. Equipment used in such stations is, therefore, required to be highly reliable and safe, with minimum maintenance requirements,” says Energas Technologies MD Hendrik van Huyssteen.
The electrical energy produced by Gigawatt Mozambique will be exported to the Electricidade de Mozambique transmission grid through a 275 kV bus bar connected to the recently built Ressano Garcia substation.
Once completed, the plant will consist of an engine-hall, housing 13 natural gas‐fired internal combustion engines manufactured by designers and manufacturers of integrated power systems Rolls- Royce in Bergen, Norway, and associated motor and generator suppliers ABB.
“With the expertise to serve all spheres of the oil and gas industries, Energas Technologies is well equipped to provide advanced monitoring and control technologies for a smooth and consistent energy supply – with no interruptions,” concludes Van Huyssteen.
