Siemens ships locally produced gas turbines to Saudi plant

RIYADH, July 26, 2016

Technology major Siemens has delivered the first shipment of its locally produced gas turbines to the Integrated Gasification Combined Cycle (IGCC) power plant in Jazan, Saudi Arabia.

The locally produced turbines are in line with the Saudi Vision 2030 and Saudi Aramco’s In-Kingdom Total Value Add (iktva) programme, said a statement from the company.

This is the world’s largest power plant of its kind that will be fuelled with gasified refinery residues, which contributes significantly to increasing the energy efficiency, it said.

Siemens is supplying a total of 10 gas turbines – that were specifically designed for synthesis gas (syngas) – to Saudi Aramco’s landmark project, it added.

These engineering masterpieces will power the 4,000 MW power plant and generate 600 tonnes of high pressure steam per hour to Aramco’s refinery, which is an essential part of the overall development of Jazan Economic City, said a statement.

The shipment of the first locally produced gas turbine falls in line with the event held by Aramco with its partners for the Fadhili project, it stated.
Professor Siegfried Russwurm, member of the managing board and chief technology officer (CTO) of Siemens AG, said: “We built these high-tech gas turbines in Saudi Arabia with local talent and are proud to deliver them to their new home in Jazan.”

“We have kept our promises and are grateful to Saudi Aramco for their confidence in Siemens. We assure Aramco and the people of Saudi Arabia of Siemens’ continuous strong commitment and contribution to the realisation of the Kingdom’s Vision 2030,” he added. – TradeArabia News Service
