Siemens Nets Largest SGT-800 Service Order

Contract includes preventative maintenance, remote monitoring, parts supply, field service

Posted on December 20, 2013

Siemens Energy received a long-term agreement to perform service and maintenance at the 450 MW Sino Iron power station located at Cape Preston in Western Australia’s Pilbara region.

The service contract is Siemens’ largest service order ever for the company’s SGT-800 gas turbine, Siemens said. The customer is CITIC Pacific Mining Management Pty Ltd, which operates the power station within the Sino Iron project.

The 10-year contract includes preventative maintenance, remote monitoring, parts supply, and field service, and will help to ensure predictable reliability and maintenance costs for the seven SGT-800 units operating at the Sino Iron power station. The power station provides the electricity needed to power the magnetite iron ore mining and processing operation in Australia.
