Order worth approximately EUR200 million
Siemens Energy has received an order from the state-owned Israeli utility Israel Electric
Corp. (IEC) for the supply of components for three gas turbine power plants. The order also
contains an option for the supply of components for another power plant. The plants are
scheduled to come on line by the summer of 2010. The order volume is approximately
For the power generating stations Ramat Hovav, Hagit and Eskhol, each with an installed gas turbine
capacity of 287 MW, Siemens will supply three SGT5-4000F gas turbines, three air-cooled
generators, the exhaust stack and the air intake system. The order also covers the electrical and
instrumentation & control equipment for the turbine-generators, fuel conditioning systems and
engineering work. The facilities will initially be operated as gas turbine power plants and are then
be converted by IEC in a second phase to combined cycle stations.
"Siemens has already outfitted the Haifa, Hagit and Gezer facilities with power plant equipment.
Securing the order for the new power plant projects in Israel once again demonstrates that we are
making good progress with the expansion of our component business. Our advanced gas turbine
technology will significantly contribute toward climate-friendly, reliable and at the same time
economic power supply in Israel," said Michael Suess, CEO of the Fossil Power Generation
Division of Siemens Energy.
"Over the next few years Israel's power demand will rise significantly. Against this backdrop it is
important that the country's installed power plant capacity is further expanded. IEC will be building
five new power plants in the next two years. Siemens is helping us to quickly implement these
plans," said Amos Lasker, CEO of IEC.
