Qatar utility seals a 9-year contract with GE Gas Power

Qatar Electricity & Water Company (QEWC) said it has signed a contract with GE Gas Power to provide upgrades and maintenance services for a period of nine years to three of its 9F gas turbines installed at the Ras Abu Fontas B2 (RAF B2) Cogeneration Plant, located 10km south of the capital, Doha.

The agreement was signed by Mohammed N. Al-Hajri, Managing Director and General Manager of QEWC, and Joseph Anis, President & CEO of GE Gas Power Europe, Middle East, and Africa.

Qatar’s main supplier of electricity and desalinated water, QEWC, said it is pleased to continue its long association with GE to improve plant performance, reduce operating costs, and support vital operations to strengthen Qatar’s water and energy security.

GE’s partnership with QEWC began with the construction of the RAF B2 Cogeneration Plant, as one of the EPC contractors, and continued through the provision of long-term maintenance services, since the plant began commercial operations in 2008.

The three units covered under the service agreement have a total generation capacity of up to 609 megawatts and equip one of the most important power facilities in Qatar, supporting the country’s electricity network.QWEC
