The plant is set to meet the requirements of the new refinery and petrochemical complex under development at the Duqm Special Economic Zone in Oman, complementing the country’s economic diversification plan and focus on building up its industrial sector. The Siemens scope of supply includes a combined cycle power plant consisting of five SGT-800 industrial gas turbines, five SST-300 industrial steam turbines, and the corresponding control system. Additionally, the project scope includes Siemens’ cybersecurity solutions to improve asset visibility, reliability and security, while decreasing operation and maintenance costs.
