• New Facility Owned by Local Utility Tanesco Supports Government’s “Big Results Now” Initiative;
• With Addition of This Project, All GE Units in Tanzania Now Will Provide More than 30 Percent of Total Electric Power in the Country;
• GE to Supply Four LM6000-PF Dual-Fuel Aeroderivative Gas Turbines to Jacobsen Elektro AS, the Engineering, Procurement and Construction Contractor for the Project.

Increasing Tanzania’s installed power capacity by about 15 percent, GE Power & Water’s Distributed Power business today announced that it is providing four aeroderivative gas turbines two already delivered at site to engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contractor Jacobsen Elektro AS for a new facility in Kinyerezi. The new, 150-megawatt natural gas turbine power plant is owned by the local utility, Tanesco, and supports the Tanzania government’s “Big Results Now” (BRN) initiative. With the addition of this project, GE units now will provide more than 30 percent of the total electric power in Tanzania.

“This project will help Tanzania reduce its dependence on expensive rental units and strengthen the reliability of its power supply,” said Ole Kristian Ødegård, managing director, Jacobsen Elektro AS. “As the EPC contractor for this power plant, we are responsible for the complete turnkey project and choosing the best solution for Tanesco’s needs. GE’s flexibility and reliable technology were key reasons we chose them for this important project.”

Under the terms of the contract, GE will supply four of its LM6000-PF dual-fuel aeroderivative gas turbines, which will provide approximately 44.5 megawatts (MW) of power each at about 40 percent efficiency. The LM6000-PF units have dry low emissions (DLE) 1.5 technology with triple annular combustors and dual-fuel operation, eliminating the need for water injection for emissions abatement while reducing NOx emissions to 15ppm. The new facility in Kinyerezi is expected to begin commercial operation in late 2014 or early 2015.

“Kinyerezi is expected to become one of the most important industrial settlements with high demand for a reliable power supply. We are supplying nearly one-third of Tanesco’s distributed electricity through our agreements with two key independent power producers in the country, which include eight aeroderivative gas turbines from our portfolio,” said Lorraine Bolsinger, president and CEO for GE Power & Water’s Distributed Power. “This project is another example of how GE’s proven distributed power solutions are providing on-site power to the regions of the world that are growing the fastest and need it most.”

GE launched its Distributed Power business in Nigeria on June 10, 2014, in Lagos. The business is focused on power generation at or near the point of use, including a potential $1.4 billion investment in technology to develop new and improved products for customers.

GE Power & Water’s Distributed Power business is a leading provider of power equipment, engines and services, focused on power generation at or near the point of use. Distributed Power’s product portfolio includes GE’s aeroderivative gas turbines and reciprocating engines, which generate 100 kilowatts to 100 MW of power for numerous industries globally. Headquartered in Cincinnati, Ohio, Distributed Power employs about 5,000 people around the world.
