Siemens ships first gas turbine package to Abu Dhabi’s Zirku Island oil field

MOUNT VERNON, Ohio -- Siemens has shipped its first Industrial Trent 60 gas turbine generator package from its manufacturing facility in Mount Vernon, Ohio, to Abu Dhabi Marine Operating Company's (ADMA-OPCO) Satah Al-Razboot (SARB) offshore oil field project on Zirku Island.

The shipment will be the first of five Industrial Trent 60 power generation packages to be delivered, installed and commissioned for ADMA-OPCO. The Aeroderivative Gas Turbine (AGT) is the first of three dual fuel units that will be delivered as part of the order that also includes two gas only units.

The Siemens Industrial Trent 60 is the most advanced AGT available today. Generating up to 66 megawatts (MW) of electric power in simple cycle service, at 42% efficiency, the Industrial Trent 60 has established a new benchmark for fuel economy and fuel burn cost savings. It also offers operators fast delivery and installation times.

"As the first High Scale Siemens AGT project in Abu Dhabi, the shipment of this first package is an important milestone in our contribution to the UAE's energy sector," said Dietmar Siersdorfer, CEO of Siemens Middle East and United Arab Emirates. "The SARB offshore oil field project will be a key component of the UAE's economic strength, and we are proud that our advanced turbine technology will be responsible for making it a reality."

Originally developed for use in aviation, AGTs are compact, lighter-weight designs that are ideally suited for power generation in the oil and gas industry. Their high efficiency and fast-start capabilities mean that AGTs also perform well in distributed power generation applications.

ADMA-OPCO's SARB offshore oil field project is being built on Zirku Island, which is located 120 km northwest of Abu Dhabi. The SARB offshore oil field project will have a daily capacity of 100,000 bbl of oil, equivalent to 160,000 200-liter drums, and 35 MMcfg, the amount on which about 6,600 gas buses can run.

The offshore project is being implemented in seven stages and primarily involves the reclamation and construction of two artificial islands, to facilitate drilling works for the extraction of crude oil from the field.

The first installation phase is expected to begin in May 2016: with commissioning on Duel Fuel Operation completed by 2018, and completion of plant commissioning on gas by 2019.
