GE on 13 March announced an order to supply a 200MW combined-cycle power plant for the Amandi Energy project in Aboadze. The turnkey plant will be powered by GE’s 9E.04 gas turbines, running initially on light crude oil, and switching to gas from Ghana’s offshore Sankofa natural gas field once it comes on stream in 2018. GE will also provide the steam turbine, heat recovery steam generator and balance of plant. The order follows financial close for the project announced in December (AE 337/1), and an engineering, procurement and construction contract announced in March 2016 with GE and Greek contractor Metka (AE 321/6).
