With more industrial facilities using distributed power technologies to ensure a reliable energy supply and increase productivity, Genesis Electricity’s driven project company, GEL Utility Limited has recently taken delivery of three 25 megawatt, trailer-mounted aeroderivative gas turbines, equipped with BRUSH DAX turbogenerators, to generate uninterrupted power at Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation’s (NNPC) state oil refinery at Port Harcourt, Nigeria.
The installation by GEL Utility Limited of mobile gas turbines at the Port Harcourt Refining Company (PHRC) facility will ensure the country’s largest oil refinery has the power it needs to overcome chronic grid outages and return to full capacity for refining. Until recently, grid outages have reduced PHRC’s output to 30% of its total maximum capacity of 210,000 barrels per day. The outages have forced Nigeria to import large volumes of refined petroleum products to meet its domestic needs. The three BRUSH generators, which entered commercial operation in August 2014, will provide both the base load and backup power to support refinery operations.
