Kuwait’s Shuaiba North Power Station Awarded Services Agreement to GE Vernova

GE Vernova’s Gas Power business today announced the signing of a five-year services agreement with the Malaysian and Kuwait-based Engineering Company TNB REMACO – Al Dhow Joint Venture. The agreement is for the 876 Megawatt (MW) Shuaiba North Power Station facility in Al Ahmadi, Kuwait, owned by the country’s Ministry of Electricity & Water & Renewable Energy.

The announcement was made at a ceremony at COP28 in Dubai attended by Dato’ Abdul Razak bin Abdul Majid, Chairman of Tenaga Nasional Berhad; Datuk Ir. Megat Jalaluddin Megat Hassan, Chief Operating Officer; Joseph Anis, CEO and President Gas Power- Europe, Middle East and Africa; KV Pandian, General Manager – Gas Power Services; Ir. Muhammad Nazri Bin Pazil, Chairman of TNB REMACO Board of Director (BOD); and Mr. Joe Chidiac, Managing Director of Al-Dhow.

The agreement includes the upgrade of the current combustion technology installed on the three gas turbines of the Shuaiba North Power Station to the Dry Low Nox DLN2.6+ combustion system. This will provide improved combustor operability, reduced emissions levels, extended turndown capability and extended hardware inspection intervals. Additionally, parts, repairs, field services, and GE Vernova’s Asset Performance Management (APM) software in the cloud will be supplied.

“We are collaborating with GE Vernova on the service agreement because they have the technological expertise and proven gas turbine services track record to help ensure that Shuaiba North Power Station operates at the highest levels of reliability,” said Ir. Muhammad Nazri Bin Pazil.
