Kuwait's Subiya power plant to be operational in June 2012
Mohammed Bushehri, planning manager in the plants projects sector at MEW said three units of the first phase, with a total capacity of 1,350 MW, are already operational. Three more units with about 700 MW capacity are expected to enter service in June 2012.
The gas-fired combined cycle power plant in Subiya, Al Jahraa, in northern Kuwait, will use natural gas as its primary fuel and distillate as the secondary fuel, according to the Zawya Projects Monitor. The Mina Al Ahmadi refinery will supply the fuel feedstock via pipeline.
Successful commissioning tests have been conducted already, Bushehri said. According to the contract, the EPC contractor, a consortium of GE and Hyundai Heavy Industries, will operate and maintain all units for seven years, including supplying the necessary spare parts and training the national workforce.
