Siemens has clinched a deal to supply key power generation equipment for the Sabiya Extension Three combined cycle power plant in Kuwait. 

Kuwait’s Ministry of Electricity and Water (MEW) awarded the contract to Alghanim International for execution of engineering, procurement and construction (EPC). 

The power train supply by Siemens will consist of two SGT5-4000F gas turbines, two hydrogen-cooled SGen5-2000H generators, one SST5-5000 steam turbine, and a SGen5-2000H steam turbine generator.

“This is the fourth power plant order that Siemens has secured in Kuwait in only four years, following the orders for Sabiya Extensions One and Two and Az Zour South,” remarked Jean Claude Nasr, head of sales for the Middle East and North Africa (Mena) region at Siemens Power and Gas.

Under the long-term service contract, Siemens plans covers the power train components including power diagnostics and remote monitoring, that are part of the German technology giant's digital services portfolio.
