Sohar Aluminium has signed a 10-year services contract for GE Gas Power to provide repairs, maintenance, and parts for four GT13E2 gas turbines and four generators at its site in Oman. GE Digital will also provide its Asset Performance Management software for the term of the contract.
The four units have a combined capacity of 696 MW and the power is used to power Sohar Aluminium’s smelter. GE will enhance unit reliability, increase gas turbine availability, decrease costs, and reduce operational risks.
Said Al Masoudi, CEO at Sohar Aluminium, said: “Stable electricity supply is a key input for our manufacturing processes and essential for continuous operations. The GT13E2 units at our site have provided critical power output since they were first installed in 2009.”
