Siemens has secured a contract from Daewoo E&C and Hyundai Engineering to supply power plant components for the Ras Djinet and Ain Arnat combined cycle power plants in Algeria.

Together, both the power plants will have an installed electrical capacity of over 2,000MW and will supply electricity to more than five million homes on Algeria’s Mediterranean coast.

Both the plants are being built for Sociéte Algérienne de Production de l’Electricité, the state-run energy provider in Algeria.

The contract also requires Siemens to supply six SGT5-4000F gas turbines, six SST5-3000 steam turbines, and six SGen5-2000H generators.

In addition, Siemens will provide technical support and services for the construction and commissioning of the six power trains.

The company has additionally signed a ten-year framework agreement to deliver spare parts for the Ras Djinet plant.
