Siemens Energy has announced that it has secured two orders worth more than £110m at its Energy Service Fossil facility in Newcastle.
The first is for the the supply of steam-turbine spares to Iraq’s Ministry of Electricity for use in the Al Mussaib Power Station. Work on the spares will be undertaken at the Siemens Shields Road facility in Newcastle.
Carl Ennis, managing director of Siemens Energy Service Fossil, said: ‘This contract will pave the way for future business to assist the Ministry of Electricity in its efforts to improve the reliability and maintenance of the electricity supply for the people of Iraq.’
The second order is for parts, shop repairs and field service for the Siemens-designed gas turbines, generators and steam turbines at Seabank Power Station in the Bristol area.
Owned and operated by Seabank Power, the combined-cycle gas turbine power station has two modules with an overall capacity of 1,155MW. Siemens will supply parts and repair and service the plant’s equipment on both modules, with the contract expected to run until 2018.
All field service and onshore project management activities will be coordinated by Siemens in the UK.
Stuart Mayer, Seabank general manager, said: ‘By extending our long-term partnership with Siemens until at least 2018, we can expect that the plant will be maintained to the highest standard, allowing us to provide a much-needed flexible and reliable electricity generation capacity.’
