GE signs multiyear service agreement for gas turbines at Riyadh power plant

RIYADH, SAUDI ARABIA — GE Power has signed a multiyear service agreement with Saudi Electricity Company (SEC) to provide comprehensive maintenance, parts and repairs services for eight GE 7F.05 gas turbines at Riyadh Power Plant 12 (PP12). The $141 MM contract will span a period of 9 yr.

GE supplied the 7F.05 gas turbines under a previous contract with SEC, with four units entering commercial operations in 2014, followed by the rest a year later. Operating in combined-cycle mode, the turbines add about 1,800 megawatts (MW) to the national grid. Under the new service agreement, not only will GE’s team provide support on-site, but equipment at PP12 will also be monitored by the Saudi PowerGen Efficiency Center (SPEC), located in the GE manufacturing and technology center in Dammam. A collaboration between GE and SEC, SPEC monitors over 500 power generation trains round-the-clock to enable seamless operations and reduce downtime.

The 7F.05 achieves 60% efficiency, providing SEC with lower fuel costs and setting a new standard for F-class efficiency. The turbines also offer wide fuel flexibility including natural gas, distillate oil, Arabian Super Light crude and a variety of other fuels. GE is also providing 12 additional units of 7F.05 gas turbines for SEC’s PP13 and PP14 facilities.

GE has more than 500 gas turbines installed in the Kingdom, which provide more than 50% of the country's electricity.
