Siemens has completed a deal with KOSPO Korea subsidiary KOSPO Jordan at the Al Qatrana Independent Power Project (IPP) to provide tailored solutions for total coverage of the long-term maintenance needs of the facility's gas turbine installations.

KOSPO Jordan will outsource the entire responsibility of the scheduled outages for the following 25 years to Siemens and this will represent 200,000 operating hours.

Al Qatrana is the second of two IPP projects in Jordan and is the newest power plant in operation there.

Siemens Jordan CEO Wolfgang Niermann said that the turbines used within the plant are known for their durability, with more than 290 units in operation accounting for approximately 70,000 starts and more than four million operating hours, which is a big strength of the SGT5-2000E turbine.
