In Cote D'Ivoire, for example, the Azito power station was converted to CCGT from OCGT
configuration in 2015, thereby adding nearly 50% of generation capacity to 400MW and increasing thermal efficiency.

is the most vulnerable to a mainstreaming of renewable power, given it has the highest generation costs.
The Company earns full capacity payments (CPs), so long as its OCGT
meet the operating parameters specified in the PPA.
It is the latest in a series of OCGT
projects implemented by ABB for MGI.
The 588MW Ankerlig open cycle gas turbine (OCGT
) plant and the 438MW Gourikas OCGT
facility, both near Cape Town, were brought on stream at the end of 2007 and other gas-fired plants have been proposed for both the Western Cape and coastal KwaZulu-Natal.
Siemens of Germany has won a contract to construct two new open cycle gas turbine (OCGT

Tenders are invited for the scope of the contract is envisaged to include the design, manufacture, procurement, engineering, installation, construction and commissioning of an ocgt
power plant including gas turbine(s), generator(s) and associated auxiliary equipment.
The thermal technologies are loosely calibrated to hard coal (base), natural gas combined cycle gas turbines (CCGT, mid), and oil-fired open cycle gas turbines (OCGT
, peak), respectively.
Wind critics respond that wind intermittency needs considerable backup from gas-fired open cycle turbine (OCGT
) plants which are less efficient than the combined cycle gas-turbine power plants that deliver the bulk of our gas-fired electricity supply.
