Siemens has secured an order for five F-class gas turbines for a combined heat and power (CHP) plant in Saudi Arabia. 

The plant has an electricity generating capacity of 1,500 MW and will reportedly supply close to 400 MW of electricity and process steam to a new natural gas extraction plant in Fadhili.

All five turbines will be manufactured at the Siemens Damman Energy Hub (SDEH), which is the first manufacturing facility for gas turbines in Saudi Arabia and the largest in the Middle East. 

The contract was awarded by South Korean company, Doosan Heavy Industries & Construction, who is responsible for engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) of the plant.
