RasGas Company Limited is applying GE’s dry low NOx (DLN) combustion technology to reduce gas turbine emissions at its LNG complex in Ras Laffan Industrial City, Qatar.
“The technology retrofits for our first six GE gas turbines reduced NOx emission levels by more than half, which goes beyond the country’s current regulatory requirements,” said Hamad Rashid Al Mohannadi, RasGas managing director. “Working with GE, a global technology leader, enables us to further our commitment toward achieving cleaner air for the country. We will be moving forward with the retrofitting of the rest of our fleet of gas turbines to ensure that the entire complex fulfills its environmental responsibilities.”
The retrofitting of the GE gas turbines is being done as part of a long-term maintenance agreement between RasGas and GE. A GE team dedicated to the RasGas site is responsible for performing all maintenance of GE units with the objective of increasing availability and reliability by leveraging GE’s technology and specialized technical support.
“This project attests to the strong relationship, forged over the years, between GE and RasGas. GE’s innovative technology and advanced services are designed to help RasGas achieve production efficiency while complying with the state of Qatar’s environmental regulations,” said Joseph Anis, GE Energy’s president for the Middle East. “GE’s emission reducing technology not only supports the region’s overall efficiency drive to fuel continued growth, but also helps to preserve and promote the well-being of the environment.”
