United Arab Emirates’ Order For Siemens
Siemens Energy has received a follow-up order from the emirate of Abu Dhabi for the construction of a turnkey combined cycle power plant. Siemens will build the Shuweihat S3 plant with its Korean partner Daewoo Engineering & Construction Co. about 260 km west of Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.
Siemens will be the consortium leader and supply the main components of the power plant, which will have an electrical capacity of 1600 MW when it starts commercial operation in 2014. Siemens will supply four SGT5-4000F gas turbines, two SST5-4000 I-L steam turbines, six generators (SGen5-1000A and SGen5-2000H), and an SPPA-T3000 electrical and I&C system, the company said.
Siemens will also supply, on a turnkey basis, a gas-insulated 400 kV 8DQ1 switchgear unit. Daewoo Engineering & Construction will be responsible for the ancillary and auxiliary systems, as well as the civil works.
The purchaser is a consortium consisting of the Japanese Sumitomo Corp., the Korea Electric Power Corp. and the local utility Abu Dhabi Electricity & Water Authority (ADWEA).
