Siemens Components And Service Contract
Combined-cycle plant to deliver 2060 MW; order value approximately US$590 million including service agreement
Siemens Energy has received an order to supply six gas turbines, three steam turbines and nine generators for the Rabigh 2 IPP combined-cycle power plant in Saudi Arabia.
The customer is the Korean construction company Samsung C&T, which is erecting the facility for Al-Mourjan Project Co., a consortium under the direction of the independent power producer ACWA Power.
Following project completion in mid-2017, Rabigh 2 IPP will have an installed electrical generating capacity of 2060 MW to supply Makkah Province with electric power. Including commissioning support services and a long-term maintenance service agreement, the order value for Siemens amounts to approximately US$590 million.
The Rabigh plant will comprise three power plant units. For each of these units, Siemens is delivering two model SGT6-5000F gas turbines, one model SST6-5000 HI-L steam turbine, and three SGen6-1000A-series electrical generators. Siemens will also provide support services for erection and commissioning of the power plant.
All three power plant units are designed as multi-shaft configurations in which the each gas turbine and steam turbine drives its own dedicated generator, the company said. In addition to natural gas, these units can also be fired with petroleum, i.e. crude oil.
