Siemens supplies H-class gas turbines for Egyptian power plant project

Siemens (NYSE: SI) supplied four H-class gas turbines at a planned 4.8-GW power plant project in Egypt.

Workers placed two of the 400-MW gas turbines alongside six 500 kV generator transformers on their foundations at the Beni Suef power plant. The plant is scheduled for completion in winter 2016 or 2017. It will initially be operated in simple cycle mode, then workers will add heat exchangers and steam turbines to expand it into combined cycle mode with a capacity of 4.8 GW. Elsewedy Electric is Siemens’ construction partner on the project.

Siemens and local partners will build a total of three natural gas-fired combined cycle power plants with a total capacity of 14.4 GW in Egypt, with 4.4 GW connected to the grid in 19 months, from signing to service.
