Yokogawa ME wins Shoaiba II order
Contract includes operator training simulators for new SEC plant
Yokogawa Electric Corporation subsidiary, Yokogawa Middle East, has reportedly won a contract to supply systems and operator training simulators for Saudi Electricity Company’s (SEC) new Shoaiba II power plant, according to Arab News.
The order, received from Daelim Industrial Co., is for a Centum VP control system and a simulator to be used to train operators on using the complex plant operations system. The firm will be responsible for engineering, testing, installation and commissioning of the equipment.
The Shoaiba II plant is scheduled to become operational in June of this year, with a total of 10 gas turbines, and two steam turbines, for a combined output of 1,200MW.
Yokogawa is said to have won the order due to factors such as its top rating for Saudisation, and its efforts to promote professional education and employment opportunities within the Kingdom.
