Turboden and Siemens Energy upgrade gas compressor station in Egypt
23 February 2021
Turboden, a Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Group company, has been selected to supply a hightemperature
Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) system to GASCO’s Dahshour gas compressor station (GCS) in Egypt.
The ORC system will be coupled with 20MW electric motor driven (EMD) compressors supplied by Siemens Energy, to boost the efficiency of the gas station.
GASCO is the state-owned operator of Egypt’s natural gas transmission networks in Egypt and the Dahshour GCS project is considered a first-of-its-kind. It will exploit the heat from four existing gas turbine trains and from the new high efficiency, low emissions gas turbines supplied by Siemens Energy.
