(Image source: Siemens)Siemens has received an order from Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) to supply three SGT5-4000F gas turbines to the Al Aweer power plant complex, located approximately 35km from downtown Dubai

The project was awarded to Siemens as part of a consortium led by Egypt-based El Sewedy Electric Co SAE (SWDY.CA) through its subsidiary Elsewedy Power.

With an electrical generating capacity of about 815MW, the turbines are expected to increase the total output of the power plant complex to more than 2.8 GW.

According to Siemens, the commercial commissioning of the three gas turbine trains is scheduled for spring 2020.

Siemens will supply three SGT5-4000F gas turbines, three SGen5-1200A generators and the control system SPPA-T3000. As a peak load power plant, the new Unit H Phase 4 with its latest F-class gas turbine technology aims to cover a particularly high energy demand in the emirate’s hot summer months and during the upcoming EXPO 2020 exhibition.

Jean-Claude Nasr, vice-president for sales for the Middle East and North Africa at Siemens, said, “For more than 20 years, we have been working successfully with DEWA to continuously improve Dubai’s local power generation infrastructure and help to ensure sufficient and reliable power supply in this Middle Eastern metropolis.”

Around two-thirds of DEWA’s total installed power plant capacity, amounting to approximately 10.2 GW, is based on Siemens technology.
