Siemens Energy will supply two SGT5-4000F gas turbines and two SGen5-1000A generators to Hanwha Engineering & Construction Corp. from South Korea for a new power plant in Biskra, Algeria.
The Biskra simple-cycle power plant will be constructed in the capital city of Biskra Province, in the north eastern part of Algeria, and will have an installed capacity of approximately 460 MW.
Siemens will supply spare parts as part of a 10-year agreement. The plant will be operated by Société Algérienne de Production de l'Electricité (SPE) – a company of the state-owned utility Socièté Nationale de l'Electricité et du Gaz (Sonelgaz). Commissioning is scheduled for August 2014.
This is the third order placed with Siemens Energy within the last year for power plant components in Algeria, following the Ras Djinet and Ain Arnat projects.
