Siemens awarded its biggest order in Oman for power and water project

Duqm desalSiemens has received an order to supply the Duqm Integrated Power and Water project (DIPWP) with gas and steam turbines, long-term power generation services and digital solutions in Oman

The total order volume of the contract is in the range of US$228.64mn, representing Siemens’ largest contract in the sultanate. Spanning a period of 25 years, the service contract for the project marks also one of the company’s longest contracts in the oil and gas sector globally.

The DIPWP power and associated SWRO desalination facility is located in the Duqm Special Economic Zone and is being developed by Duqm Power Company LLC, a joint venture, between Oman Oil Company and Gulf Energy of Thailand.

It is set to meet the requirements of the new adjacent DRPIC refinery and petrochemical complex, complementing the country’s economic diversification plan and the focus on building up its industrial sector. Following completion of the project in 2022, DIPWP will have an installed generating capacity of 326MW in combined-cycle duty and 36,000 cu/m of desalinated water for Duqm refinery and petrochemical facilities per day.

The Siemens scope of supply includes a combined cycle power plant consisting of five SGT-800 industrial gas turbines, five SST-300 industrial steam turbines, and the corresponding control system. Additionally, the project scope includes Siemens’ cybersecurity solutions to improve asset visibility, reliability and security, while decreasing operation and maintenance costs.

Abdullah Al Hashimi, project director of DIPWP, said, “Oman aims to build a robust and diversified energy system that can support its long-term, sustainable economic development. We are committed to supporting the country in realising this vision with projects that set new standards in efficiency and reliability, and can serve as blueprints for other national and regional projects. We are pleased to partner with Siemens on this significant project that will support the industrial zones in the country while preserving natural resources.”

Jean-Claude Nasr, senior executive vice-president, power generation at Siemens in the Middle East and North Africa, added, “This is the biggest order ever Siemens achieved in Oman for medium-size gas turbines and the first one in Oman for our SGT-800. Currently, Siemens supports the generation of more than half of Oman’s power supply, enabling the country to optimize gas consumption.”

The advanced monitoring and diagnostics services provided to Duqm plant will help maximise performance, lower operating costs and deliver better and more reliable business outcomes for the plant operator, according to Claudia Massei, CEO of Siemens Oman.
