Siemens Water Solutions successfully installed and started up a Zimpro® wet air oxidation (WAO) system at a global petrochemical company’s olefins plant in the Southern U.S.
The order, received in November 2017, is the second Zimpro® wet air oxidation system supplied to the customer. The first system was supplied in 2004.
The Zimpro® WAO system will treat spent caustic generated in the production of ethylene by destroying odorous and high chemical oxygen demand (COD) pollutants. The system also generates an effluent that can be safely neutralized and sent to a biological treatment plant, where it is further treated for discharge.
Siemens Water Solutions addresses water and wastewater needs of the oil and gas industry with a portfolio that includes physical and chemical separation, biological treatment, and complex hydrothermal technologies.
- Real-time data analysis from 29 gas turbines across multiple locations will increase availability, reduce forced outages and enable proactive, prescriptive maintenance
- Digitalization to improve availability, efficiency, productivity and flexibility
Siemens will install state-of-the-art Remote Diagnostic Services (RDS) for GAIL (India) Limited covering 29 gas turbines operating across the Hazira-Vijaipur-Jagdishpur (HVJ) pipeline and the Vijaipur C2/C3 Plant. The scope includes the supply of RDS hardware, site installation and commissioning including remote Operational Service Desk (OSD) and helpdesk services. The OSD will be accessible 24/7, equipped with machine learning tools and manned by technical experts to provide faster, high quality troubleshooting and guidance for problem resolution.

- Siemens experts will work alongside customers to co-create solutions that help deliver higher efficiency, reliability and flexibility in operations
Siemens experts will work alongside customers to co-create solutions that help deliver higher efficiency, reliability and flexibility in operationsSiemens has officially opened its new MindSphere Application Center in India. The facility is a state-of-the-art digitalized technology center, supported by Siemens’ MindSphere, an open, cloud-based IoT operating system that lets customers connect machines and physical infrastructure to the digital world and their thermodynamic digital twins.
Additive manufacturing has the potential to become a new key technology. For example it opens up new attractive prospects in the manufacture of gas turbines. This is why Siemens has been investing in this innovative technology right from its inception, and is now driving the industrialization and commercialization of these processes. Additive Manufacturing is a process that builds parts layer-by-layer from sliced CAD models to form solid objects. This enables highly precise solutions to be formed from powdered high-performance materials. Siemens is a pioneer in Additive Manufacturing and already uses the technology for rapid prototyping. Furthermore the company is now developing solutions ready for series-production for manufacturing gas turbine burner nozzles and repairing burner heads. Just recently Siemens achieved yet another breakthrough: the first gas turbine blades ever to be produced using Additive Manufacturing have successfully finished performance testing under full-load conditions.
• Agreement is Siemens' largest O&M deal in terms of power generated • Sites to serve as model for other utilities in reliability and efficiency• Digital services and data analytics to optimize plants and ensure reliabilityIn a new milestone agreement, Siemens announced today that it has been selected by the Egyptian Electricity Holding Company (EEHC) to provide comprehensive operation and maintenance services (O&M) for the Beni Suef, New Capital and Burullus power plants, for the next eight years. The agreement, which is the largest ever for the Siemens Power Generation Services in terms of power generated, includes the implementation of the company's Omnivise digital service solutions.Each of the three 4.8GW power plants is considered to be the largest gas-fired combined-cycle plant ever built and operated. Together the plants represent approximately 40 percent of Egypt's power capacity, at the time of signing contracts, generating 14.4GW – enough to supply 40 million Egyptians with electricity."The new agreement aligns with our energy production goals to ensure sustainable growth and maximum reliability and efficiency of new and existing combined-cycle generating facilities," said Eng. Gaber El Desouki, Chairman of the EEHC. "Strategically, it makes sense for us to enlist a single trusted and credible service provider to help operate and manage our large-scale power assets."The multi-year agreement covers all on-site equipment including 24 gas turbines, twelve steam turbines, 36 generators, 24 heat recovery steam generators and three 500 kV gas-insulated switchgear systems. "The new agreement reconfirms our focus to work with Egypt on developing the right mix of solutions to support the country's dynamic needs. It also underscores the tangible cost benefits that digital technologies can bring to the power industry," said Gianluigi Di Giovanni, Senior Executive Vice President of Siemens Power Generation Services in the Middle East and North Africa. "As a key development partner to the country we are committed to contributing to the sustainable growth, diversification and efficiency of the Egyptian energy industry." Siemens will also implement its services portfolio to improve asset visibility, reliability and availability of the three power plants. Data from the plant operation will be collected, analyzed and transformed into actionable insights such as accurate diagnostics, troubleshooting and condition forecasting, improving plant reliability and reducing downtime. Additionally, the data processed can help to balance maintenance costs, optimize inspection intervals and provide valuable insights into operational risks.Building on more than 30 years of experience in power plant operation and maintenance, Siemens currently manages more than 35 GW in 17 countries. The company's global resources and fleet expertise enable it to provide complement plant services and management, along with sharing best practices and technical knowledge with power plant owners.
