GE’s Power Services business signed a multi-year service agreement (MYA) to upgrade equipment at Songas’ Ubungo Power Plant in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. The MYA encompasses GE’s Fleet360 platform of total plant solutions, helping Songas ensure the long-term, reliable operation of its power plant.
The upgrades will help Songas increase the efficiency and the plant’s capacity at the Ubungo plant by approximately 10 MW.
The eight-year MYA, which also includes maintenance and repairs of the gas turbines, will help Songas to increase the efficiency of the Ubungo plant to around 41%—approximately a 3% improvement.
Under the terms of the deal, GE will upgrade three of the four LM6000 gas turbines in the fleet from the LM6000PA to the LM 6000PC, expected to increase the output of the units from 38 MW to 43 MW each—and reaching output levels of up to 46 MW with GE’s optional SPRINT technology.
