German conglomerate Siemens has secured a €200m order for the Duqm Integrated Power and Water project (DIPWP) in Oman.
Under the contract, Siemens will supply gas and steam turbines, long-term power generation services and digital solutions for the project.
The company stated that once the project is completed in 2022, it will have 326MW of capacity from the combined-cycle duty and 36,000 m3 of desalinated water for Duqm refinery and petrochemical facilities per day.
For this project, Siemens has agreed to supply a combined cycle power plant that includes five SGT-800 industrial gas turbines, five SST-300 industrial steam turbines and the corresponding control system.
Besides, Siemens will supply its cybersecurity solutions to improve asset visibility, reliability and security, while reducing operation and maintenance costs.
Siemens Middle East and North Africa Power Generation Senior Executive Vice President Jean-Claude Nasr said: “This is the biggest order ever Siemens achieved in Oman for medium-size gas turbines and the first one in Oman for our SGT-800. Currently, Siemens supports the generation of more than half of Oman’s power supply, enabling the country to optimize gas consumption.
“Siemens reiterates its firm commitment to continue its support to the growing Omani market with focus on the expansion of localization and Omanisation in the long term, strengthening the country’s economy and creating more jobs for the Omanis.”
The plant is claimed to meet all the requirements of new refinery and petrochemical complex under development at the Duqm Special Economic Zone in the country.
DIPWP project director Eng. Abdullah Al Hashimi said: “Oman aims to build a robust and diversified energy system that can support its long-term, sustainable economic development. We are committed to supporting the country in realizing this vision with projects that set new standards in efficiency and reliability, and can serve as blueprints for other national and regional projects.
“We are pleased to partner with Siemens on this significant project that will support the industrial zones in the country while preserving natural resources.”
Earlier this month, Siemens secured an extension order in Qatar from QPower, to extend maintenance and long-term services at its Ras Laffan B combined-cycle power plant for 15 more years.
Through this agreement, Siemens will offer maintenance, parts and repair services for three SGT5-4000F gas turbines, two SST5-6000 steam turbines, and their associated generators.
Additionally, the company will supply a broad range of digital services and cybersecurity solutions, designed to boost efficiency of the power plant.
