Serving society in several ways: The Egypt Megaproject
Over the last few decades, the population of Egypt has doubled to reach approximately 100 million people. With efforts to extend electrification, Egypt’s energy infrastructure had been under strain – with the effects felt by both industry and private residents.
Provision of three combined-cycle power plants with 4.8 GW each and eight 500kV gas-insulated switchgear substations
Professional training for 6,000 Egyptian engineers
23,275 jobs (direct and indirect) created locally
Emission and costs savings, due to top efficiency levels of 61 percent
Electricity for 40 million Egyptians
Development of an environmental and social action plan
More energy sovereignty for Bolivia
Siemens Energy and Bolivia are carrying out an ambitious project to increase the country's power generating capacity, provide a stable power supply to the local population and its developing economy, and export electricity throughout South America.
Conversion of three simple-cycle plants into three combined-cycle, increasing the power generation capacity by 1 GW
Increase in the current energy system capacity by 50 percent laying the groundwork for future electricity exports (after 2025)
New energy service and training center expected to employ approximately 130 people
Professional training for 40 Bolivian technicians every two years
Fast power solution lights up homes in northern Afghanistan
After decades of conflict, electricity is a scarce commodity in Afghanistan. Approximately 90% of the population has an unstable or no access to electricity. Although the country has sufficient reserves of gas, 75% of consumed electricity is imported from other countries.
Mobile gas turbine unit providing up to 41 MW of power generation (200 MW in the final phase)
A step toward long-term energy independence using domestic gas reserves
Power for approximately 200,000 households
Driver for stabilization, economic growth, job creation, and pacification in the region
Substantial CO2 emissions savings through coal-to-gas shift in the energy intensive pulp and paper industry
In response to China's coal-to-gas policy, Shanghai Orient Champion Paper Co, Ltd. decided to start its own power generation and switch from coal to gas. By being the first operator of the SGT-300 gas turbine in China, they created a new benchmark for the Chinese paper market.
Provision of gas turbines, substations, and generators
Electricity for 2.9 million Iraqis now, and 40 million Iraqis in the future
Clinic for now 4223 patients a year, and 15,000 patients in the future. Donation of all medical and power equipment
Increase in power capacity by 791 MW by 2020, and by 11 GW in the future
Future vocational education and training for 1,000 Iraqis
Harvesting Morocco’s solar power potential
Morocco´s population is growing, prosperity is increasing, companies are relocating, and rural areas are being connected to the power grid. Energy demand, especially for electricity, is growing, and the country is dependent on fossil energy imports. Time to use the sun as a filling station!
