Rolls-Royce order for Sharjah Power Station expansion

Rolls-Royce said announced that the Sharjah Electricity and Water Authority (SEWA) have chosen Trent 60 generation sets to power the latest phase of the Wasit power plant expansion. The order is at an estimated value of over US$40 million. The contract, won in association with GECO Mechanical & Electrical Limited, is for two Trent 60 dual-fuel generating sets with a combined output of almost 80MW operating at 40 degrees C. Tom Curley, President of Rolls-Royce energy business, said: ’SEWA will benefit greatly from the Trent’s high fuel efficiency and overall economics. It will be able to manage the fluctuations in power demand in a cost effective manner. Rolls-Royce is delighted to be part of this exciting electrical power expansion programme.’ The units, which are intended to operate for 5000 hours annually, are scheduled to be operational by the end of January 2007. Assembly will be undertaken at the Rolls-Royce production plant at Mount Vernon, Ohio from where they will be shipped to Sharjah in the third quarter of 2006. GECO will be responsible for local transportation, installation/erection, and the supervision of the commissioning in conjunction with Rolls-Royce. The Trent 60, developed from the Rolls-Royce Trent aero engine, is the most advanced aeroderivative gas turbine available in modern times today. With an efficiency of 42 per cent, the engine has established a new benchmark for fuel economy and cost savings. SEWA’s selection of the Trent 60 follows the 2004 order from Dolphin Energy Limited for six Trent 60 Dry Low Emission (DLE) gas turbines to power compressors along the Dolphin pipeline from Qatar to the UAE. The first two of these 70,000 horsepower gas compression packages will be shipped to Dolphin’s gas plant in Ras Laffan, Qatar.
