• GE Power completes the installation of Advanced Gas Path (AGP) upgrades on four 9E gas turbines at the West Damietta Power Plant.

• Upgrades helped to enhance fuel efficiency by up to 2.2 percent and generate up to 18 megawatts (MW) of additional output at the site - the equivalent electricity needed to power up to 15,000 Egyptian homes.

The upgrade solution has helped to enhance fuel efficiency by up to 2.2 percent and increase the average output per turbine by over 4.5 megawatts (MW), leading to a total output increase of 18 MW at the facility the equivalent electricity needed to power up to 15,000 Egyptian homes. The technology has also substantially increased the average duration between maintenance works on the units from 12,000 hours to 32,000 hours, significantly reducing operational costs.

Mohamed Abu Sinna, Chairman of the East Delta Electricity Production Company said,“We decided to collaborate with GE on this upgrade project because of the proven effectiveness of their technologies in Egypt and across the world. Improving supply side energy efficiency is a top priority in Egypt today. By enabling us to generate more power per unit of fuel consumed, GE’s AGP solution is helping us to enhance energy efficiency and bring down costs.”

GE’s AGP solution offers customers a range of performance advancements that can be tailored based on their operational needs. The technology has been installed on more than 435 gas turbines across 39 countries on five continents, generating $775 million a year in benefits for power producers.

GE has also previously successfully installed the AGP upgrade on four 9F gas turbines in Egypt located at the Kureimat and Nubaria Power Plants. The upgrades led to an average output increase of about 7 percent per unit and extended the average lifetime of each turbine by 24,000 hours.

“The world needs innovative energy solutions that pay for themselves and help balance the need to meet growing energy demands against environmental concerns,” said Joseph Anis, President & CEO of GE’s Power Services and Gas Power Systems businesses in the Middle East and South Asia. “We are proud to bring GE’s AGP upgrade solution to the West Damietta Power Plant to support the East Delta Electricity Production Company’s efforts to make better use of existing power generation assets and further strengthen Egypt’s energy sector.”

GE has supported the development of energy, healthcare and transportation infrastructure across Egypt for over 40 years and today GE-built technologies can deliver up to 16 GW to the national grid.
