Rolls-Royce wins US$110m global energy contracts
Electricity generating turbines demand picking up for manufacturer
Rolls-Royce, the global power systems company, has won new contracts valued at over US$110 million for energy projects in Europe, Africa, India and the Middle East. As part of these contracts, Rolls-Royce will deliver both power generation and pipeline transmission products and services.
Andrew Heath, Rolls-Royce, president - Energy said: “We are pleased to announce these new contracts, which demonstrate the confidence customers have in our product technology and performance. Rolls-Royce continues to grow in the important global power generation and oil and gas markets, powering pipelines in 24 countries and delivering electricity generation capability in over 50 countries.”
Two RB211 gas turbine power generation packages have been ordered by the France's Total Oil Company to provide power to an oil facility in the Middle East, which will utilise gas fuel that would otherwise have been burned off, thereby increasing the efficiency of the operation, Rolls-Royce said in a statement.
Two additional RB211 turbines, powering gas compression packages, will be supplied to Slovakian energy company, Slovenský plynárenský priemysel (SPP) for use in a compressor station, which is part of their gas transmission network in Central Europe. Rolls-Royce has already provided five turbines to the gas transmission system, which last year enabled the network to deliver 66 billion cubic metres of gas to homes and businesses.
Also included in the new contracts, Rolls-Royce will provide Bergen reciprocating engines to customers in Tanzania, Madagascar, India and Spain to efficiently generate electricity.
In the energy markets, Rolls-Royce has supplied more than 15,000 units to customers in nearly 120 countries and is investing in new products and capabilities for the oil and gas industry and for distributed electricity generation.
