Siemens wins power contracts in Dubai

The facility is a 2,000 MW combined-cycle power plant and a 140 million imperial gallons per day desalination plant and is located in the United Arab Emirates, Dubai

Orlando, Fla., October 17, 2012 — Siemens Energy Service has won long-term contracts for Dubai Electricity and Water Authority's newest power station in operation, the Jebel Ali M-Station.

The facility is a 2,000 MW combined-cycle power plant and a 140 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 about one million households in Dubai with clean power generated by highly efficient gas turbines.

With a secured combined order value of about $450 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 program, 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 spare parts and professional outage management.

Siemens' service product portfolio is based on flexibility, allowing plant owners to choose the level of complexity to match their specific needs. A tiered range of services is designed to help customers optimize availability during the lifecycle of the plant equipment.
