Iran has commenced discussions with Siemens and Rolls-Royce as the country looks to develop its power sector post-sanctions.
Rolls-Royce has delivered 36 of its subsidiary MTU Onsite Energy’s natural-gas-fired gensets for a power plant in Accra, Ghana.
Siemens has received an order to supply six gas turbines, four steam turbines and ten generators for a new combined-cycle gas-fired power generating facility in Qatar, which is set to provide 25 per cent of the nation’s power.
Rolls-Royce is set to deliver eight gas-fired gensets to power Bangladesh’s largest steel production facility.
In answer to the perpetual question "Is it all about efficiency?” for reciprocating engines, Tuesday morning’s International Council on Combustion Engines (CIMAC) panel discussion at POWER-GEN Europe largely answered “Yes”.
The performance of Siemens traditionally strong power generation division, together with its health care unit, has been cited for the overall disappointing profit statement released this week.
