GE To Supply FuelSolv To Al-Quds Power Plant
GE has signed a contract with Iraq’s Ministry of Electricity to supply FuelSolv, a fuel oil treatment technology, to help enhance the reliability and productivity of the Al-Quds power plant on the outskirts of Baghdad, Iraq.
GE is supplying 2000 tons of FuelSolv, which can be added to a variety of power plant fuels, including heavy oil, to protect and improve the performance of power generation equipment.
This contract is the largest fuel oil treatment contract GE has signed in the Middle East and marks GE’s second fuel treatment order in Iraq, following a contract signed last year for the supply of 500 tons of FuelSolv to the Baghdad South power plant, GE said. FuelSolv was developed by the water and process technologies business unit of GE Power & Water.
The Al-Quds plant, powered by six GE Frame 9E heavy-duty gas turbines, generates 800 MW for the Iraq electricity grid.
