Siemens' scope of supply encompasses three SGT5-4000F gas turbines, three SGen5-1200A generators and the control system SPPA-T3000 as well as assembly and commissioning on site. As a peak load power plant, the new Unit H Phase 4 with its latest F-class gas turbine technology is being planned mainly to cover a particularly high energy demand in the Emirate's hot summer months, and during the upcoming EXPO 2020 exhibition. With this order Siemens is securing its market position as the leading technology supplier to DEWA. Around two-thirds of DEWA's total installed power plant capacity, amounting to approximately 10.2 gigawatt (GW), is based on Siemens technology.
"This new order from DEWA is another proof of the great trust that the Government of Dubai places in Siemens technology," said Jean Claude Nasr, Vice-President for the sales region Middle East and North Africa at Siemens Power and Gas. "For more than 20 years, we have been working successfully with DEWA to continuously improve Dubai's local power generation infrastructure and help to ensure sufficient and reliable power supply in this Middle Eastern metropolis."
