Siemens has secured a contract from China Energy Engineering Group Guangdong Power Engineering Co. Limited to supply key components for the 470 MW Attarat steam power plant in Jordan. Guangdong Power Engineering Co. Limited will act as the general contractor and build the facility for the Attarat Power Company, the operator of the plant. Siemens’s scope of supply comprises two steam turbines, two air-cooled generators and a turbine control system. The condenser is air cooled to address the lack of water at the site. The plant is expected to commence operations by June 2020 and will supply electricity to cover up to 15 per cent of the country’s annual power demand.
