P&WA will install the units in Tripoli as part of a turnkey agreement with Qatar Fund for Development in support of the Qatar government's humanitarian efforts to support the people of Libya.
Qatar Fund for Development's director general, Khalifa bin Jassim Al Kuwari, signed the agreement with General Electricity Company of Libya and the director general of the US company Power & Water Alliance LLC. GECOL will own and operate the gas turbines which will run on diesel fuel oil and are expected to be operational in the spring of 2017.
"PW Power Systems provided rapid support for the people of Libya by delivering the FT8 MOBILEPAC gas turbine units to Libya within six weeks of contract signing," said PWPS President Peter Christman. "These fast-track mobile units will provide fuel flexibility and high reliability providing power to thousands, as well as supporting essential infrastructure such as hospitals and community care centers."
Large-scale production of shale gas in the US, which began around the turn of the century, is now feeding US exports in the form of LNG.
Annual demand for natural gas in the EU is pegged at approximately 380 Bm3y–450 Bm3y. A portion of this demand is met by regional production within the EU. However, the European energy system is beset by challenges that are impacting EU gas supply.
