Yokogawa wins Saudi power plant order
Tokyo, April 15, 2013
Yokogawa Middle East said it has won a key order from Daelim Industrial Company to supply control systems and operator training simulators for a major power plant being built for the Saudi Electricity Company.
Located south of Jeddah on the Red Sea coast, the Shoaiba II combined cycle power plant will have ten gas turbines and two steam turbines with a combined output of 1,200 MW (Two Block of 600 MW each) and is scheduled to start operation in June 2013.
The order is for a comprehensive solution comprising a Centum VP control system and a simulator which will be used to train operators under complex simulated plant operating conditions.
The control system at the plant will be for the integrated control of heat recovery steam generators (HRSG) and gas turbines. For the systems and products that make up these solutions, Yokogawa Middle East and its subsidiary Yokogawa Saudi Arabia will be responsible for project execution, including engineering, testing, installation and commissioning, the statement said.
Yokogawa Middle East said it was able to secure the order due to factors such as its top platinum rating for nationalisation under the Saudi government’s Nitaqat programme.
