Siemens To Service Iraq Plant
Initial four-year agreement for upgrades, monitoring, field service
Siemens Energy has agreed to perform service and maintenance at the 600 MW Baiji gas power plant located in the Salah al-Din governorate in Iraq.
Under terms of the contract signed with Iraq’s Ministry of Electricity, Siemens will supply and deliver spare parts for the Baiji power plant’s four SGT5-2000E gas turbines as well as perform significant upgrades, remote monitoring and diagnostic services, and field service for an initial period of four years.
The upgrades include the major overhauls of the SGT5-2000E turbines with Siemens’ 3-dimensional blades and vanes (Si3D). The integration of the Siemens Si3D blades and vanes provides the plant with optimal technical and economic benefits, the company said.
