Siemens delivered the first shipment of its locally produced gas turbines to the Integrated Gasification Combined Cycle (IGCC) power plant in Jazan, in line with the Saudi Vision 2030 and Saudi Aramco’s In-Kingdom Total Value Add (iktva) program.

This is the world’s largest power plant of its kind that will be fueled with gasified refinery residues, which contributes significantly to increasing the energy efficiency.

Siemens is supplying a total of 10 gas turbines – that were specifically designed for synthesis gas (syngas) – to Saudi Aramco’s project.

These engineering masterpieces will power the 4,000 MW power plant and generate 600 tonnes of high pressure steam per hour to Aramco’s refinery, which is an essential part of the overall development of Jazan Economic City.

The shipment of the first locally produced gas turbine falls in line with the event held by Aramco with its partners for the Fadhili project.

Prof. Siegfried Russwurm, member of the managing board and CTO of Siemens AG said: “Today we celebrate another milestone together with our partners. We built these high-tech gas turbines in Saudi Arabia with local talent and are proud to deliver them to their new home in Jazan.

"We have kept our promises and are grateful to Saudi Aramco for their confidence in Siemens. We assure Aramco and the people of Saudi Arabia of Siemens’ continuous strong commitment and contribution to the realization of the Kingdom’s Vision 2030.”
