Samawa & Dhi Qar Power Stations Project
This project is in Iraq. The work will include installing turbines and commissioning of the Samawa and Dhi Qar power stations, adding an additional 1.5GW to the national grid. The first phase will involve the installation of four 9E gas turbines by 2018, followed by the combined-cycle conversion for the second phase.The project consists of a single power block producing 750 MW of power at transmission levels of 132 kV and 400 kV. The configuration of the combined cycle will be 4x4x1. Four GE 9E series combustion turbine generators capable of operating on three types of fuel are to be installed at the plant. Each Gas Turbine will be coupled with a Heat Recovery Steam Generator to convert the exhaust energy of Gas Turbine to steam. The steam then will be diverted to a 250 MW capacity Steam Turbine Generator to produce additional power. The cooling of the plant will be performed by Air Cooled Condenser. The main fuel to be used at the Dhi Qar plant is crude oil. The back-up fuels for the plant are light distillate oil and natural gas. The equipment is designed to operate for 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, with a useful life span of 25 years. The plants will be the first combined cycle facilities to be owned and operated by the Ministry of Electricity. The thermal efficiency is to be in excess of 50%, which will help Iraq to save a total of 14 billion cubic meters of natural gas and 32 million tons of carbon dioxide over the 25-year operating period. US's GE will provide the advanced heat recovery steam generators (HRSG) and steam turbines for the second phase. US's GE has been awarded the EPC contract for the plants.
