Siemens has signed a long-term agreement with the Sudanese Thermal Power Generating Company (STPGC) to provide service and maintenance for the power generating assets and related components operating the 337 MW Port Sudan and 502 MW Garri gas-fired power plants. Siemens will also provide O&M advisory services for both plants.
The agreement includes Siemens’ Power Diagnostics™, part of the company’s “Digital Services for Energy” portfolio, as well as support from Siemens’ 24/7 Remote Expert Centre monitoring the controls systems. Using data analytics, STPGC and Siemens will work together to identify, assess, and diagnose abnormal operating conditions, and to recommend what actions need to be taken to prevent negative impacts on operations.
The Port Sudan plant is equipped with two SGT5-2000E gas turbines, while the Garri plant, scheduled to begin commercial operation in May 2018, will be equipped with three SGT5-2000E gas turbines. Both plants feature Siemens’ SPPA-T3000 controls system that will also be serviced and maintained as part of the agreement.
