Turboden, a Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Group firm, has been chosen to produce a high-temperature Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) system to GASCO’s Dahshour gasoline compressor station (GCS) in Egypt.
The ORC system will likely be coupled with 20MW electrical motor pushed (EMD) compressors provided by Siemens Energy, to spice up the effectivity of the gasoline station.
GASCO is the state-owned operator of Egypt’s pure gasoline transmission networks in Egypt and the Dahshour GCS undertaking is taken into account a first-of-its-kind. It will exploit the warmth from 4 current gasoline turbine trains and from the brand new excessive effectivity, low emissions gasoline generators provided by Siemens Energy.

Thanks to the restoration of exhaust gasoline warmth and excessive environment friendly compressor trains, this built-in answer permits the technology of 192GWh per yr of fuel-free electrical energy. This power, powering two 10MW EMD compressors, permits GASCO to avoid wasting 65 Million Sm3 of pure gasoline per yr and consequently avoids 120,000 tonnes of emissions yearly.
“As this method can work fully disconnected from the electrical energy grid and doesn’t want water, it’s completely appropriate to be put in in distant or abandoned areas. Moreover, the chance to copy the undertaking is a concrete step forward in direction of the trail to decarbonisation of the oil & gasoline business,” mentioned Paolo Bertuzzi, managing director and CEO Turboden S.p.A.
“This distinctive undertaking comes as a part of our dedication to help the federal government in adopting energy-efficient and sustainable options and enterprise fashions to additional maintain the nation’s power infrastructure, which Egypt already has. Dahshour undertaking, with this game-changing answer, will assist reinforce the supply and boosting of pure gasoline to help [the] South of Egypt,” mentioned Emad Ghaly, managing director of Siemens Energy in Egypt.

This undertaking is financed by the EBRD (European Bank for Reconstruction and Development) as a part of its five-year decarbonisation programme, which focuses on modernisation and power effectivity.
GASCO intends to leverage EBRD’s funding to put money into infrastructure effectivity enhancements, in step with the Green Economy Transition Approach (GET) and contributing to the improved sustainability of the business.
“This distinctive undertaking is a concrete demonstration that ORC methods are power effectivity options that permit the O&G business to enhance the sustainability of its processes, supporting the business on its path towards decarbonisation. We are very proud to cooperate with GASCO on this built-in answer which might change into a finest apply for a brand new technology of sustainable gasoline compressor stations,” said Nicola Rossetti, gross sales & enterprise growth supervisor – Oil&Gas and Combined Cycle at Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Group.
