GE awarded $5.6 million maintenance contract

GE Power Systems has signed a $5.6 million agreement to provide maintenance services for five gas turbines at four oil refineries and petrochemical plants in Spain.

The sites are owned by Compania Espanola de Petroleos (CEPSA), an international oil and gas company based in Madrid, Spain.

Two of the plants are located in San Roque, Cadiz, one is in Huelva and the fourth is in Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Canary Islands. There are two GE gas turbines at one of the San Roque facilities, and one machine at each of the other plants.

Under the terms of the agreement, GE will provide all parts, technical advisory services and repair services for planned and unplanned maintenance of the five gas turbines. The agreement will cover a maintenance period of approximately six years.

All of the units are MS6001B machines originally manufactured by Alstom Gas Turbines and are site-rated at approximately 40 megawatts each. They are operating in a cogeneration mode, producing steam for use in the refinery processes and power for internal use or for sale to the grid.

GE currently has CSAs and other service agreements in place at more than 580 sites around the world.
