GE signs gas turbine pact with Israel Electric

The pact between Israel Electric Corporation and GE’s Power Services business covers the three 9FA gas turbines at Eshkol, Tzafit and Alon Tavor power stations. GE signs gas turbine pact with Israel Electric

The new deal comes into effect in 2017 and follows a previous 13-year multi-year agreement between IEC and GE for the three plants. It covers parts, repair and technical advisory services for planned outages for the three 9FA units.

GE’s Power Services president Paul McElhinney said the continued contract would “increase the country’s long-term energy supply by improving the reliability and availability of its existing 9FA gas turbine fleet”.

Eshkol is Israel’s third largest power plant with a production capacity of 1449 MW, while Tzafit and Alon Tavor both have a 650 MW capacity.
