Siemens Wins Dubai Power Plant and Desalination Facility Maintenance Contract
Siemens Energy Service has been awarded long-term contracts for Dubai Electricity and Water Authority’s (DEWA) newest power station in operation, the Jebel Ali M-Station. The facility is a 2,000 megawatt (MW) combined-cycle power plant and a 140 MIGD (million imperial gallons per day) desalination plant and is located in the United Arab Emirates – Dubai.
The power station began commercial operation in 2012 with a power generation capacity to supply approximately one million households in Dubai with clean power generated by highly efficient gas turbines. With a secured combined order value of approximately USD450 million, the twelve-year service and parts contracts represent one of Siemens’ largest service agreements in the region. The agreement includes the option for an extension of the service period.
Under the Long-Term Program (LTP), Siemens Energy will provide comprehensive maintenance services for the six Siemens SGT5-4000F turbines and six SGen5-1000A series generators, which are installed in the plant. The long-term maintenance contracts are intended to enhance overall plant reliability and provide additional technical and financial benefits to DEWA, including more predictable maintenance costs and extended warranty coverage, as well as the supply of original equipment manufacturer (OEM) spare parts and professional outage management.
“We are pleased to announce this contract with DEWA, one of our most important customers in the Middle East. DEWA is committed to operating its plants with the highest efficiency and lowest operating costs, and we are honored they chose Siemens as their partner for this long-term service agreement, which is aligned to meet their high standards for plant operations,” said Randy Zwirn, CEO of the Energy Service Division within the Energy Sector. “The Middle East is a region of high importance for Siemens Energy and a prime market that helps us sustain strong growth in our global Service business.”
