Abu Dhabi - Mubasher: Siemens on Tuesday announced signing an extension of a multi-year maintenance service agreement with the UAE-based Shuweihat S2 Operation and Maintenance Company (S2O&M).
Under the new 18-year extension, the Berlin-based firm will support the 1,500-megawatt (MW) combined-cycle power and water plant, Shuweihat S2 independent water and power plant (IWPP), in Abu Dhabi, Times of Oman reported.
The deal will also include the deployment of products from Siemens’ Omnivise digital services portfolio including cyber-security solutions to help improve asset visibility, reliability and availability.
With rising demand for energy in the UAE, S2O&M is looking for ways to enhance the reliability and performance of its power assets, the UAE-based company’s plant general manager Ramesh Kakade said.
Siemens will also deploy its flexible long-term programme (FlexLTP) which offers high-level asset availability by extending intervals between inspections.
Additionally, the project will include an integrated suite of advanced remote monitoring and diagnostics services, such as asset monitor.
“Digital solutions have become a strong contributor for sustainable growth in the power sector,” Siemens Power Generation Services’ vice president for the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) said.
Cyber-security solutions will contribute to protecting the power plant’s operations and increasing system uptime.
