Siemens ships first gas turbine to Zirku field

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

According to a statement made on Wednesday, Siemens sent its first of five Industrial Trent 60 power generation packages which will be delivered, installed and commissioned for ADMA-OPCO. Siemens stated 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.

Specs for the turbine claim it can generate up to 66 megawatts of electric power in simple cycle service at 42 percent efficiency and that it was originally developed for use in aviation with a compact, light-weight design.

“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.”

ADMA-OPCO’s SARB offshore oil field project is being built on Zirku Island, which is located 120 kilometers northwest of Abu Dhabi. The SARB offshore oil field project, according to the statement, will have a daily capacity of 100,000 barrels of oil and 35 million cubic feet of gas.

Siemens’ good performance and cooperation with ADMA-OPCO helped the successful completion of Factory Acceptance for all the units. We are confident that the partner’s relationship with Siemens will continue until the commissioning at site of the Industrial Trent 60 Machines and for years to come” said Ali Ghanim Bin Hamoodah, Senior Vice President of Projects & Engineering at ADMA-OPCO.

Siemens stated that the offshore project will be 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.
