Siemens to supply power equipment and services for 840 MW power plant in Iraq
 
Combined-cycle power plant in Maisan will deliver electricity supply to more than three million Iraqis 
• Siemens equipment includes F-class gas turbines, steam turbine, generators, main transformers and project supervision
• Power Diagnostics Services to optimize performance, including employee training and know-how transfer
 
09 July  2019:    As part of its long-term support to expand Iraq’s power infrastructure, Siemens has received an order to supply gas and steam turbines and generators as well as long-term power generation services for the 840-megawatt (MW) Maisan Combined Cycle Power Plant, located in Maisan Governorate in the southern region of Iraq. Both CITIC Construction Co., Ltd., the engineering procurement and construction firm building the plant, and Iraqi developer Maisan Power Company (MPC), part of Raban Al-Safina for Energy Projects (RASEP), which is owned by Raban Al-Safina Group awarded the contract valued at more than 284 million euros to Siemens. 
 
The independent power project is expected to deliver first power by March 2021 and enter full combined cycle mode by early 2022. The plant will enable sufficient electricity supply to meet the needs of more than three million Iraqis in additional to supporting the industrial sector. The Siemens scope of supply includes two STG5-4000F gas turbines, one SST5-4000 I-L steam turbine, three SGEN5-2000H generators, along with automation and control systems, transformers and related electrical equipment, the fuel gas system, and supervision during the implementation period by the Siemens team. 
 
“Iraq is undergoing economic transformation and as the country embarks on a series of ambitious infrastructure projects, efficient and reliable electricity will be essential to powering this development,” said Dietmar Siersdorfer, CEO, Siemens Middle East and UAE. “With over 100 years of presence in the country, we are proud to support the generation of half of Iraq’s power supply. We are also committed to providing vocational training for up to 1,000 Iraqis to develop a pipeline of talented local workforce who can contribute to the New Iraq.” 
 
Mr. Saadi Saihood, Chairman of Raban Al-Safina Group, said, “MCCPP project will be one of the unique projects of a series of power generation projects in Iraq’s history due to combining innovative German technology with an experience Chinese EPC service provider. We are confident with such a strong team will enable us to deliver a successful project that will benefit millions of Iraqis.” 
 
Discussing the deal, Karim Amin, CEO of Power Generation at Siemens AG, said: “This project will mark an important milestone in the power generation domain in Iraq. The state-of-the-art power island that will be installed by Siemens, including the latest technology of F-class Gas Turbines, will turn Maisan power plant into the most efficient gas-fired combined cycle power plant in Iraq. This is very critical for the economics of the long-term operations and the effective utilization of fuel.
 
“In addition, the long-term service agreement is designed to ensure increased efficiency and maximum availability of the power plant while also providing technical training for local Iraqi staff on the operation and maintenance (O&M) front, which will support skills development and knowledge transfer to the Iraqi people.” 
 
Siemens will also utilize its Power Diagnostics Services (RDS), part of the Omnivise Digital Services portfolio. The company's RDS solution combines asset data with industry expertise to deliver information that allows faster and accurate predictive analysis for effective decisions. This enables improved operational planning to increase availability, mitigate risks and optimize operational costs. 
 
Just recently, Siemens and the Ministry of Electricity of the Republic of Iraq signed an implementation agreement to kick off the actual execution of the roadmap for rebuilding Iraq's power sector. Within the implementation agreement, the two have agreed on the award of contracts valued at approximately 700 million euros for Phase 1 of the Roadmap. These include the EPC construction of a 500 megawatt gas-fired power plant in Zubaidiya; the upgrade of 40 gas turbines with upstream cooling systems; and the installation of 13 of 132 kilovolt substations along with 34 transformers across Iraq.
