GE will supply a steam turbine generator set and two heat recovery steam generators (HRSG), along with associated engineering and other services for the Kuwaiti Ministry of Electricity’s Sabiya gas-fired power plant.

Trade Arabia News reports that the equipment will allow the conversion of the plant from simple-cycle to combined-cycle configuration, helping it to generate more than 260 MW of extra power without the use of additional fuel.

The heat recovery steam generators (HRSG) will be shipped from Korea and are expected to arrive in Kuwait by the third quarter of 2018.

They will be installed and operated on the backend of non-GE F-class gas turbines currently operational at the facility. The HRSG units are being manufactured at GE’s facilities acquired from Doosan. GE announced the acquisition of Doosan Engineering & Construction’s HRSG business in August 2016.

“GE is committed to driving power sector efficiency across Kuwait and helping the Ministry of Electricity meet the increasing demand for power for domestic, industrial and municipal use,” said Ghassan Barghout, president & CEO of GE’s Gas Power Systems – Sales, for the Middle East & North Africa.

“By adding onto non-GE legacy systems at the facility, our steam tail technology will help enhance output and lower both the life cycle costs, as well as the emissions generated per megawatt of electricity produced at the Sabiya Power Plant.”
