Siemens signs new service agreement for Baiji power plant in Iraq



February 12, 2014

Siemens Energy has been awarded an agreement to perform service and maintenance at the 600 megawatt (MW) Baiji gas power plant, located in the Salah al-Din governorate in Iraq.

Under terms of the contract signed with Iraq's Ministry of Electricity, Siemens will supply and deliver spare parts for the Baiji power plant's four SGT5-2000E gas turbines as well as perform significant upgrades, remote monitoring and diagnostic services, and field service for an initial period of four years. The upgrades include the major overhauls of the SGT5-2000E turbines with state-of-the-art Siemens' 3-dimensional blades and vanes (Si3D). The integration of the Siemens Si3D blades and vanes provides the plant with optimal technical and economic benefits.

"As Iraq continues on its path to restore and improve the country's long-term, reliable energy production, ensuring its energy producing assets are performing reliably and at optimum levels is extremely important," said Randy Zwirn, CEO of Siemens Energy Service Division. "We look forward to applying our proven service products portfolio, our technical expertise and our commitment to customer-focused service to help the Ministry of Electricity meet the energy needs of Iraq."

The Siemens Energy Sector is the world's leading supplier of a broad spectrum of products, services and solutions for power generation in thermal power plants and using renewables, power transmission in grids and for the extraction, processing and transport of oil and gas.
