Siemens has announced it will supply six gas turbines, three steam turbines and nine generators components for Rabigh II Independent Power Project (R2IPP) in Saudi Arabia to deliver 2,060MW of generating capacity order value
Siemens Energy has entered into an agreement to supply the products for the Rabigh 2 IPP combine-cycle power plant, the company stated.
"This order is yet another indicator of the large demand in Saudi Arabia for efficient power generation solutions. Our high-efficiency F-class gas turbine is a perfect fit for the Saudi market," said Thierry Toupin, CEO of business unit gas turbines and generators at Siemens' energy sector.
"The Rabigh 2 IPP project expands our already strong market position in this country even further." Siemens already announced in 2012 and 2013 the major orders it won in Saudi Arabia to supply the Qurayyah IPP and Jazan projects with its F-class gas turbines,” Toupin added.
The project is expected to be completed in mid-2017, with the power plant's installed electrical generating capacity expected to reach 2,060MW to supply Makkah Province with electric power, Siemens Energy said.
