Ansaldo Energia announced it has been awarded a 20-year contract for the maintenance of the gas turbines of the “6th October” power plant, owned by Cairo Electricity Production Co., located on the outskirts of Cairo, Egypt.

The plant consists of an open cycle and a combined cycle phase, manufactured by Ansaldo Energia starting from 2014. Each of the two phases is equipped with four AE 94.2 gas turbines built at the Ansaldo Energia site in Genoa. The turbines were already covered by two expiring “Frame Agreements” service contracts.

The new deal is a turnkey Long Term Service Agreement that covers all eight gas turbines of the plant, providing for complete parts supply, service activities for scheduled maintenance, repair of vanes, spare parts, instrumentation and training activities for the local staff working in the plant.

“Service is a strategic asset for Ansaldo Energia, strengthening long term relationship with key customers and paving the road to keep enhancing our products” said Giuseppe Marino, CEO of Ansaldo Energia, which is 88% controlled by Cassa Depositi e Prestiti.

“Achieving this objective has a strategic value for us,” said Stefano Gianatti, executive vice president for Global Service of Ansaldo Energia. “Indeed, it represents a concrete appreciation of our work by Cairo Electricity Production Company, so much so that we have been confirmed for the maintenance of the ‘heart’ of their plant”
