Siemens has received a follow-up order from the emirate of Abu Dhabi for the construction of a turnkey combined-cycle power plant.
The company will build the Shuweihat S3 plant together with its Korean partner Daewoo Engineering & Construction Co. approximately 260 km west of Abu Dhabi. Purchaser is a consortium comprising the Japan’s Sumitomo, the Korea Electric Power Corporation (Kepco) and the local utility Abu Dhabi Electricity & Water Authority (ADWEA). After the scheduled start of commercial operation in 2014 the new plant will have an installed electrical capacity of 1600 MW.
Siemens will supply the main components comprising four SGT5-4000F gas turbines, two SST5-4000 I-L steam turbines, six generators (SGen5-1000A and SGen5-2000H), an SPPA-T3000 electrical and I&C system. Daewoo Engineering & Construction will be responsible for the ancilliary and auxiliary systems (balance of plant) and the civil works.
Siemens will also supply on a turnkey basis a gas-insulated 400kV 8DQ1 switchgear unit, plus protection and I&C equipment, for connection of the power plant to the grid.
