Siemens wins major Canadian gas turbine contract

CALGARY (Canada), April 28, 2018

Leading technology giant Siemens said it has received an order from Inter Pipeline, a top natural gas company in North America, to provide long-term service for two SGT-800 gas turbine generator sets in Canada.

The units are scheduled for operation at the Central Utilities Block (CUB), part of the company's Heartland Petrochemical Complex currently under construction in Alberta's Industrial Heartland near Fort Saskatchewan, said a statement from Siemens.

The 25-year service and maintenance agreement includes scheduled maintenance for the two SGT-800 gas turbine generator sets and associated auxiliaries, it added.

Siemens said its remote diagnostics services, part of the company's Digital Services for Energy portfolio, are included and designed to predict and prevent issues before they impact turbine operations.

The gas turbine generator sets will be a critical part of the CUB, supplying power and steam to the propane dehydrogenation and polypropylene facilities within the Heartland Complex., said the statement.

This facility will use propane to produce polypropylene, a valuable and recyclable plastic used in consumer products. Commercial operation of the CUB is expected in late 2021, it added.

"This 25-year agreement is a testament to the quality and expertise of our SGT-800 service operations and solutions-based digital offerings," remarked Thorbjoern Fors, the CEO of Siemens Power Generation Services, Distributed Generation and Oil & Gas.

"We look forward to working with Inter Pipeline to help ensure the long-term reliability, availability and performance of their SGT-800 units for years to come," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
