Siemens delivers first locally produced gas turbine to Saudi plant

Published on: 

Siemens recently delivered the first of its locally produced gas turbines to the Integrated Gasification Combined Cycle (IGCC) power plant in Jazan, Saudi Arabia. Said to be in line with Saudi Aramco's In-Kingdom Total Value Add (iktva) program, this power plant will be fueled with gasified refinery residues, which is likely to increase energy efficiency.

Siemens is supplying 10 gas turbines, specifically designed for synthesis gas (syngas), to Saudi Aramco's project which will power the 4000 MW power plant and generate 600 tons of high pressure steam per hour to Aramco's refinery.


Prof. Siegfried Russwurm, Member of the Managing Board and CTO of Siemens AG said, "We built these high-tech gas turbines in Saudi Arabia with local talent and are proud to deliver them to their new home in Jazan. We assure Aramco and the people of Saudi Arabia of Siemens' continuous strong commitment and contribution to the realization of the Kingdom's Vision 2030."
