Siemens Power for Pakistan
Siemens Power Generation (PG) is to build a combined-cycle power plant with seawater desalination facility in Pakistan. The purchaser is the Karachi-based independent power provider DHA Cogen Ltd. Siemens PG will also build two identical design steam power plant units for Office Cherifien des Phosphates (OCP) in Morocco. The two orders are valued at approximately US$96 million.
The new power plant will have an installed capacity of 94 MW and produce approximately 14 million liters of drinking water daily. The plant is a key component of a US$600 million infrastructure project being implemented by the Defense Housing Authority. When completed, this project will provide a housing area for approximately 800 000 people. The new power plant is scheduled to come on line in early 2007. By linking the power plant with a thermal desalination facility almost 85% of the energy contained in the natural gas will be utilized. A second unit of this type is planned.
The Siemens PG scope encompasses overall planning for an SCC-1000F Single-Shaft combined cycle power plant, and supply of the turbine-generators and other components. This order also includes the supervision of erection operations and commissioning of the two turbine-generators, the heat-recover boiler, and the auxiliary and ancillary systems. The Swedish company Alfa Laval will supply the two-train desalination plant. The Siemens Regional Company will handle the civil works and erection of the entire plant.
