The Malvinas plant is located 400km from Lima at the southern section of the Peruvian Amazon Rainforest.

Under the contract, GE will upgrade two existing GE Frame-5C Dry Low Nox (DLN) gas turbine modules with Frame-5D DLN technology to reduce emissions and Extendor kit technology to reduce outages and extend the life cycle of the equipment.

In addition, three existing Frame-5D DLN modules will be upgraded with Extendor kits.

GE Oil & Gas global services vice president Jeff Nagel said that the Malvinas NGL plant is vital to meeting demand for gas in Peru and other areas.

"The award of this important PlusPetrol contract strengthens our relationship as a reliable supplier and consolidates our expanding role in the Latin America NGL sector," Nagel said.
