Siemens Energy wins NGL plant contract

Siemens Energy has been awarded $40m (£26m) to engineer and supply an integrated power solution for a natural gas liquids (NGL) fractionation plant in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

Siemens will be the main electrical contractor for Abu Dhabi Gas Industries (GASCO) Ruwais 4th NGL train. The train, situated in the city of Ruwais, UAE, is scheduled to go into operation in March 2012.

As main electrical contractor (MEC) for the NGL fractionation plant, Siemens will provide power and distribution transformers, high-, medium-, and low-voltage switchgear, plus motor control centres.

The company’s scope of supply will also encompass a power management system, medium- and low-voltage motors, as well as other items of equipment.

The order also includes engineering, installation, commissioning and supervision of the complete electrical equipment.

According to Siemens, the benefits of the ‘one-stop’ MEC approach are the reduction of interfaces, project management simplification, better communication and risk reduction.
