With a total of six units and a total installed capacity of 2400 megawatts (MW), the plant will generate power for an aluminum smelting plant and provide around one billion liters of drinking water a day for the capital city Riyadh with its five million inhabitants. The order volume for Siemens is more than USD1 billion. Purchaser is a consortium comprising Al Arrab Contracting Company , Saudi Arabia and the Chinese Sepco III Electric Power Construction Corporation.
The gas turbines were manufactured in the Siemens gas turbine plant in Berlin, with the manufacturing plant in Mülheim a.d. Ruhr supplying the steam turbines. The generators were produced in the Siemens facility in Charlotte, North Carolina in the U.S. Siemens is supplying a total of twelve gas turbines, five steam turbines, 17 generators and ten HRSGs and the entire electrical and I&C equipment for the Ras Al-Khair CCPP and seawater desalination plant.
