Siemens Energy has been awarded a long-term agreement to perform service and maintenance at the 600MW Baiji gas power plant in Iraq
According to the terms of the contract signed with Iraq's Ministry of electricity, Siemens will supply and deliver spare parts for the plant's four SGT5-2000E gas turbines, perform significant upgrades, remote monitoring and diagnostic services and field service for a period of four years, initially.
The upgrades include the major overhauls of the SGT5-2000E turbines with Siemens' 3D blades and vanes (Si3D). The integration of the Siemens Si3D blades and vanes provides the Baiji Gas Power Plant with optimal technical and economic benefits.
Karim Amin, head of Siemens Energy Service, Middle East, said, "As the development of Iraq's long-term energy infrastructure gathers pace, it is increasingly important that the country's power-producing assets are performing optimally."
This latest agreement at the Baiji gas power plant will deliver a solution that increases the efficiency and reliability of the facility, while additionally reducing its emissions and the lifecycle costs of the plant."
