Siemens powers ahead in Egypt

February 23 - The first two Siemens gas turbines for the Beni Suef power plant project have begun their journey from Germany to Egypt.

The gas turbines, which weighed a total of 890 tonnes, were first moved from the factory to Berlin Westhafen port, where the units were loaded onto a barge using two large cranes.

From Berlin they will be delivered to the Port of Rotterdam, loaded onto SAL Heavy Lift's vessel Wiebker and shipped to the Port of Adibiya on the Red Sea.

The two SGT5-8000H turbines will then be transported over 250 km by road using a 40-axle trailer to the Beni Suef power plant site, which is located around 110 km south of Cairo.

After a five-day journey the turbines - each of which have the dimensions 12.6 m x 5.5 m x 5.5 m - will be unloaded and installed in the power plant's machine room.

A total of eight SGT5-8000H gas turbines will be installed at the plant in several phases, with the facility initially intended to operate as a simple cycle gas-fired plant.

After its expansion into a combined cycle power plant, the site will have a total installed capacity of approximately 4.8 GW and will be able to supply around 21.6 million people with electricity, says Siemens.

The expansion of Egypt's power generation system will see 24 turbines, 24 heat recovery steam generators (HRSG), 12 steam turbines and 36 generators transported and installed at the country's three power plant projects - all of which will be supplied by Siemens.
