Siemens supplies five gas turbines to SA

Siemens has received an order for five F-class gas turbines for a combined heat and power (CHP) plant in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. With an electrical generating capacity of about 1,500 megawatts (MW), the plant will supply about 400 MW of electricity and process steam to a new natural gas extraction plant in Fadhili which is located 100 kilometers northwest of Dammam in the Eastern Province of the Kingdom. The additional 1,100 MW will be sufficient to supply power to 1.1 million Saudi households. All five turbines will be produced at the Siemens Dammam Energy Hub (SDEH), the first manufacturing facility for gas turbines in Saudi Arabia and the largest in the Middle East.
Siemens and Kahrabel FZE, an affiliate of the ENGIE Group, signed a long-term service agreement for the gas turbines for the Fadhili CHP plant for a period of 16 years. End customer is a special purpose company consisting of ENGIE with a 40 percent share, Saudi Electric Company (SEC) and Saudi Aramco Power Holding Company (SAPHCO) with a share of 30% each. The total order volume for Siemens is approximately USD 400M.
