|Siemens has won a contract from Hanwha Engineering & Construction of Korea, to supply demineralisation equipment and condensate polishing systems for a power plant in Yanbu, Saudi Arabia.|
Hanwa is in charge of the expansion project of the state-controlled Power and Water Utility Company for Jubail and Yanbu (Marafiq) at its generating complex in Yanbu, Saudi.
The SR2.7 billion ($720 million) turnkey project contract covers supply of two 250MW steam turbine plants on a relatively fast-track basis.
The new plant will help Marafiq boost its power generation capacity to better serve industries in the cities of Yanbu and Jubail. The multi-million dollar water treatment systems are scheduled for start-up in 2011.
Hanwha said the company had selected Siemens' Fullsep external regeneration system as it offers minimum cross-contamination levels of the anion and cation resin, and thus ensures efficient resin regeneration for consistent water quality.
