Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd. (MHI) has reached an agreement with ExxonMobil and its co-venture partners to supply H-100 gas turbine and compressor packages for the Rovuma LNG Phase 1 project in Mozambique.
Subject to final investment decision on the project, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Compressor Corporation (MCO) will supply the main liquefaction compressors, and Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems, Ltd. (MHPS) will provide dual-shaft, 120 MW H-100 gas turbines as the mechanical drivers.
MHI is pleased to be selected for the Rovuma LNG project, which plans to utilise the Air Products AP-X® process to build one of the world’s largest natural gas liquefaction plants in Mozambique’s remote northern area. The project plan is for two LNG trains, each expected to produce at least 7.6 million tpy.
MHI President & CEO Seiji Izumisawa commented, “We are pleased that ExxonMobil and their partners were the first to select MHI’s H-100 driven compressor trains for their Rovuma LNG project and anticipate future uses for the flexible turbine design. We are confident that our products will prove to be a game-changer for the LNG industry. This project will allow us to demonstrate the benefits of MHI’s LNG solution in terms of lower production costs, increased productivity, reduced complexity and lower lifecycle costs, while significantly reducing plant emissions.”
