GE Vernova Secures 5-Year Service Agreement for Kuwait Power Station

Published on: 

The service agreement includes the supply of parts, repairs, field services, predictive maintenance, and digital solutions, as well as upgrading three gas turbines to the dry low NOx DLN2.6+ combustion system.

GE Vernova’s Gas Power business has entered into a five-year service agreement with the TNB REMACO-Al Dhow joint venture for the Shuaiba North power station in Al Ahmadi, Kuwait. According to the agreement, GE Vernova will service gas turbines installed at the Kuwait Ministry of Electricity, Water, and Renewable Energy’s 876 MW power station.

“We are collaborating with GE Vernova on the service agreement because they have the technological expertise and proven gas turbine services track record to help ensure that Shuaiba North power station operates at the highest levels of reliability,” said Ir. Muhammad Nazri Bin Pazil, Chairman of TNB REMACO BOD. “We expect that the services and digital technologies provided by the GE Vernova team will help increase the efficiency and improve performance of the plant, which is crucial in powering Kuwait reliably.”


The Shuaiba North power station contains three electricity generating blocks, each of which is equipped with GE Vernova’s 9F.03 gas turbine and generator. GE Vernova will upgrade the combustion technology of three gas turbines to an advanced dry low NOx DLN2.6+ combustion system. The system upgrade will provide improved combustor operability, reduced emissions, increased turndown capability, and lengthened hardware inspection intervals.

In addition to gas turbine services, GE Vernova will also supply parts, repairs, field services, and its asset performance management (APM) software in the cloud. The integration of APM software enables the Shuaiba North power station to increase its levels of predictive maintenance (PdM) for gas turbines and associated equipment. APM Reliability, powered by GE Vernova’s predictive analytics, can improve asset reliability, availability, and productivity to support long-term energy security needs.

“We have a long-standing relationship with TNB REMACO-Al Dhow Joint Venture and we are honored to continue to support the Ministry of Electricity & Water & Renewable Energy, with our offering of full range of local capabilities and expertise,” said Joseph Anis, President & CEO, Europe, Middle East & Africa of GE Vernova’s Gas Power business. “GE Vernova has grown hand in hand with the country’s power development needs. We have been committed to the development of Kuwait’s power sector and I am pleased that our combined services and digital capabilities will help support long-term maintenance and performance for Shuaiba North power station.”
