Siemens Energy has been awarded a long-term agreement to perform service and maintenance at the 450 MW Sino Iron power station located at Cape Preston in Western Australia's Pilbara region. The service contract signed is Siemens' largest service order ever for the company's SGT-800 gas turbine. The customer is CITIC Pacific Mining Management Pty Ltd, which operates the power station within the Sino Iron project.
The 10-year contract includes preventative maintenance, remote monitoring, parts supply, and field service and will help to ensure predictable reliability and maintenance costs for the seven SGT-800 units operating at the Sino Iron power station. The power station provides the electricity needed to power the largest magnetite iron ore mining and processing operation in Australia.
Randy Zwirn, CEO of Siemens Energy Service Division said, "As Siemens' largest service contract ever for our SGT-800 gas turbine business, this 10-year LTP agreement furthers our growth as a major service provider for oil and gas applications. Australia is a key market for Siemens and we are proud to have been selected to provide service for this unique and important facility."
