Power: Orders valued at a good €40 million

November 02, 2015

The engineering and services group Bilfinger has won three new orders for its Power business in the United Arab Emirates, in Kuwait and in Saudi Arabia. Total volume for the orders is a good €40 million.

In Dubai, United Arab Emirates, Bilfinger is involved in the expansion of the largest energy-producing and seawater desalination plant in the country. On behalf of Siemens, the company will assume responsibility for planning of the gas supply for two new turbo groups. In addition, the associated conditioning and analysis systems will be designed, manufactured and delivered installation-ready.

In Kuwait, Bilfinger is modernizing the seawater intake at the Doha West power plant on behalf of the Ministry for Electricity and Water. New coarse screens and screening units will improve the filter function in the water extraction area and increase plant availability.

Bilfinger has extended a framework agreement with the Saudi Electricity Company covering maintenance of the boiler and auxiliary components at the Ghazlan power plant complex near Dammam. The company will conduct the inspection works necessary for operation and will exchange individual components when needed. The contract runs for a period of five years. The country’s largest energy producer has been a customer of Bilfinger for nearly 30 years.

The Power business, which has about 11,000 employees and generated an output volume of €1.45 billion in 2014, has been put up for sale and is presented in the Bilfinger Group as discontinued operations.
