Siemens To Supply Power Plant Components To Saudi Arabia
Siemens Energy has received an order to provide gas turbine packages to Saudi Arabia. Siemens will supply four SGT6-2000E gas turbines for two power plants, along with four generators and the auxiliary equipment.
The Hail Extension II and Al Qurayat Expansion II power plants will receive the components, which Alfanar Construction Co. and Saudi Services for Electromechanic Work (SSEM) purchased. Both companies will handle the project on a turnkey basis for the Saudi Electric Co. utility. The components should be delivered this year and in 2011, with the order worth about $US130 million (€100 million).
The Hail Extension II gas turbine power plant, located in central Saudi Arabia, is comprised of two units with a total capacity of 160 MW. The plant is expected to come online as early as the summer of 2011. The plant will have a total installed capacity of 136 MW.
