GE signs MYA with Samra Electric Power Company, Jordan

GE Power has recently signed a multi-year agreement (MYA) with Samra Electric Power Company (SEPCO) in Jordan. Under the agreement, GE will provide SEPCO with full plant maintenance services, including parts and repairs for critical power generation equipment for the 1,175 megawatts (MW) Samra Combined Cycle Gas Turbine (CCGT) Power Plant in the Zarqa region, which feeds power into the national grid for both residential and commercial use.


The agreement was signed by Amjad Al Rawashdeh, Managing Director of SEPCO, and Fadi Tabboush, Executive Sales Director of GE’s Power Services business for East Mediterranean, Iraq and Pakistan (EMIP), in the presence of officials of both entities.
“The collaboration with GE marks our focus on the continuous improvement of operations at Samra and the better utilization of assets at the power station,” said Amjad Al Rawashdeh. “Jordan’s energy needs are estimated to be growing at about 5 percent per annum. GE’s expertise and advanced solutions will help us to support the cost-effective supply of power to meet the requirements of people and industry in general.”

The agreement will help to lower maintenance costs, improve the availability of assets at the plant and enhance operational output and efficiency. It will cover seven GE gas turbines that are installed and operating at the Samra Station. GE will also provide its Advanced Gas Path (AGP) upgrade for 9E units and its MXL2 upgrade for GT13E2 units at the site. GE’s AGP solution to be deployed at Samra blends hardware and digital innovations to deliver industry-leading performance and operational flexibility.
