Siemens Upgrading Dubai Plant

23 November 2020

Siemens Energy will upgrade and expand services at the Jebel Ali L2 power plant and water station in Dubai.

Under terms of a new long-term service agreement, Siemens Energy will supply an intelligent controller for each of the four SGT5-4000F gas turbines, the latest SPPA-T3000 control system, services for generators, as well as added upgrades for outage reduction and operational flexibility.

The intelligent controller was co-developed by DEWA and Siemens Energy in 2019 and was the world’s first thermodynamic Digital Twin Gas Turbine (GT) Intelligent Controller. The controller uses artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning to systematically give power plant operators a complete and continuous overview and scenario-based assessment of power plant operations.

Developed and manufactured by Siemens Energy, the upgraded SPPA-T3000 control system features online patch update capabilities which enables continuous, safe plant operations during the update as it doesn’t require system shutdown. By having all equipment running on one control system, it also enhances planning for maintenance services and management of spare parts.

Upgrades for the SGT5-4000F gas turbines will enable interval extension between outages providing increased operational flexibility, allowing for a higher number of starts and reduction of outages by approximately 25%, the company said.

“DEWA is consolidating its leading position, both nationally and globally, by providing electricity and water services to the highest international standards of reliability, efficiency, availability and safety,” said Nasser Lootah, executive vice president of Generation at DEWA. “Our strategic partnership with Siemens dates back over 30 years. Siemens Energy’s technologies contribute to around 53% of DEWA’s total generation capacity, enough power for more than 2.5 million residents in Dubai.”
