Siemens Energy has announced that it has won a contract from Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (Dewa) for the upgradation and expansion of services at Jebel Ali L2 power and water station in Dubai.
Under terms of the new long-term service agreement, Siemens Energy will supply an intelligent controller for each of the four SGT5-4000F gas turbines, the latest SPPA-T3000 control system, services for generators, as well as added upgrades for outage reduction and operational flexibility.
The intelligent controller was co-developed by Dewa and Siemens Energy in 2019 and was the world’s first thermodynamic Digital Twin Gas Turbine (GT) Intelligent Controller.
The controller uses Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning to systematically give power plant operators a complete and continuous overview and scenario-based assessment of power plant operations.
The new services package from Siemens Energy includes the latest advancements in power plant service, maintenance, and controls.
Developed and manufactured by the global energy giant, the upgraded SPPA-T3000 control system features online patch update capabilities which enables continuous, safe plant operations during the update as it doesn’t require system shutdown.
Siemens Energy said by having all equipment running on one control system, it enhances planning for maintenance services and management of spare parts.
The upgrades for the SGT5-4000F gas turbines will enable interval extension between outages providing increased operational flexibility, allowing for a higher number of starts and reduction of outages by approximately 25 percent, it added.
Nasser Lootah, Executive Vice President (Generation) said Dewa was consolidating its leading position, both nationally and globally, by providing electricity and water services to the highest international standards of reliability, efficiency, availability and safety.
"Our strategic partnership with Siemens dates back over 30 years. Siemens Energy’s technologies contribute to around 53% of Dewa’s total generation capacity, enough power for more than 2.5 million residents in Dubai," he stated.
Siemens Energy Executive VP (Generation) Karim Amin said: "This new agreement underscores the longstanding relationship we have with Dewa and the successes we’ve achieved together in bringing our advanced technologies and services to its water and power facilities."
"We look forward to continuing this collaboration for many years to come," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
