SEPCO 11 awards Kuwait power plant expansion order to Siemens
19 April 2017
Siemens announced on Wednesday that it has received an order from Chinese contractor SEPCOIII to deliver an industrial steam turbine package for a power plant expansion project in Kuwait.
The project involves the expansion of the Az Zour South 3 open cycle gas turbine power plant, owned by Kuwait's Ministry of Electricity and Water, to a combined cycle power plant, the company said in a statement.
It said the project will increase the plant's total installed capacity by 263 megawatts (MW) without using any additional gas, adding that the combined cycle power plant is expected to start operations in mid-2019.
Siemens had earlier supplied a total of eight SGT5-2000E gas turbines and two SST5-4000 steam turbines for the first and second stages of the Az Zour South power plant.
