New UAE power plant to use GE gas turbines
17 February 2006 – Sharjah Electricity and Water Authority has selected GE Energy’s gas turbine technology for the Hamriyah power station, located in the Emirate of Sharjah in the United Arab Emirates.
GE will supply four Frame 9E gas turbines for phase one of the simple cycle base load power plant, which will add 380 MW of capacity to the Sharjah electricity grid. The primary fuel will be natural gas.
The UAE has demonstrated strong growth in electricity demand in recent years. Annual growth peaked at 14.1 per cent in 2004, and continued to be strong in 2005 with an increase of more than 12 per cent. The Sharjah project is part of the UAE’s plan to meet this growing demand by nearly doubling its current installed capacity from about 11 000 MW to 20 000 MW by 2020.
The gas turbines will be manufactured at GE Energy’s facilities in Belfort, France, with four machines scheduled for shipment between February and June of 2006. The new gas turbines will enter commercial service between June of 2006 and March of 2007.
“This will be a fast track project,” said William Cooney, thermal product line manager for GE Energy. “We only have ten and a half months from the time we received the order to bring the first unit on line.”
In addition to the supply of the four gas turbines, GE’s contract includes erection and commissioning of the machines, along with electrical and mechanical balance-of-plant equipment.
GE and its partners have secured approximately $1bn in financing from Japan Bank for International Cooperation (JBIC), Japanese export credit agency (ECA) and private financial institutions for the proposed 1.8GW Hamriyah Independent Power Company in Sharjah, UAE.
Co-developers GE and Sumitomo have formed equity consortium with Shikoku Electric Power Company and Sharjah Asset Management, the investment arm of the Government of Sharjah, for the project, which is claimed to be Sharjah’s first independent combined cycle power plant.
The consortium will build, own and operate the project, which is expected to be most efficient of its kind in the Middle East’s utilities sector.
The power plant is scheduled to be commissioned in 2021 and reach full commercial operations by the summer of 2023.
Electricity produced by the proposed power plant will be sold to Sharjah Electricity & Water Authority (SEWA) under a 25-year power purchase agreement (PPA).
GE Energy Financial Services’ global power leader Susan Flanagan said: “Sourcing financing from the public and private sectors to fund Sharjah’s first independent combined-cycle power plant demonstrates the region’s attractiveness for foreign investment and GE’s ability to connect global capital to significant infrastructure projects.”
GE will be responsible for supplying three 9HA gas turbines, three steam turbines, six generators, three heat recovery steam generators (HRSG) for the power plant.
In addition to providing turnkey engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) services, GE will provide parts, repairs and maintenance services for the power generation assets at the site for a 25-year period.
GE said that the three HA turbines in combined cycle operation will help SEWA reduce CO2 emissions by up to four million tons per year, compared to current levels.
GE’s Gas Power Systems and Power Services businesses in the Middle East and South Asia president and CEO Joseph Anis said: “GE has contributed to the growth of the Gulf Cooperation Council’s (GCC’s) power sector for over 80 years and GE-built technologies generate up to 60 percent of Sharjah’s electricity today.”

GE Power, a leading technology company, recently showcased a suite of innovative technologies shaping the future of the energy sector, at the ‘UAE Advanced Power Technology Day’ organised in collaboration with the US Embassy in Abu Dhabi, UAE.
The solutions presented complement the direction under UAE Energy Strategy 2050 to increase the contribution of clean energy to the total energy mix from 25 per cent to 50 per cent and reduce the carbon footprint of power generation by 70 per cent, thus saving Dh700 billion ($190.57 billion) by 2050, said a statement.
The event welcomed up to 70 high level attendees, including government officials, industry experts, power plant owners and operators, consultants, and others, it said.
Taking centre stage at the event were GE’s record-setting HA technology – the world’s most efficient heavy-duty gas turbine; and the Advanced Gas Path (AGP) upgrade technology, which helps deliver higher levels of efficiency, output, and flexibility while lowering maintenance costs for customers, allowing them to better utilize existing assets.
Joseph Anis, president and CEO of GE’s Power Services and Gas Power Systems businesses in the Middle East and South Asia, said: “With the UAE Energy Strategy 2050 focused on sustainability, we need solutions that are more efficient, as well as more flexible so they can ramp up and down quickly to complement intermittent renewable energy and help stabilize the grid.”
“UAE Advanced Power Technology Day underlines GE’s commitment to support the country in reducing the environmental impact of the power sector, with proven, cost-effective solutions that pay for themselves,” he added.
An excellent fit for the UAE’s evolving energy landscape, GE’s HA technology offers more than 64 per cent efficiency in combined cycle power plants – higher than any other competing technology today.
The turbine has already helped to deliver two world records for efficiency, one each in the 60 hertz and 50 hertz segments of the global power market. Capable of ramping up or down at up to 88 megawatts per minute while still meeting emissions requirements, the turbine can help support countries transitioning to a larger proportion of renewable power in their energy mix by helping to balance grid instability.
GE was the first to launch H-class gas turbine technology in 2003 and its evolution led to the introduction of the HA turbine in 2014.
In the UAE, the HA technology is being adopted by the Sharjah Electricity and Water Authority (SEWA) for an upcoming 1.8 gigawatts independent combined cycle power project located in Hamriyah, Sharjah.
GE’s AGP technology has been installed on 450 units, generating $775 million a year in benefits to power producers and the markets they serve in 39 countries on five continents.
With AGP upgrades, GE 9F gas turbines can achieve up to an 8 percent output increase and up to a 2 per cent efficiency increase, whereas GE 6F gas turbines can realize up to a 4.2 per cent output increase and up to a 1.2 per cent efficiency increase.
GE 9E gas turbine operations with AGP upgrades have achieved up to a 6.2 per cent output increase and up to a 1.7 per cent efficiency increase. These turbines are widely deployed in the Middle East and the AGP solution is being implemented across the region to enhance gas turbine performance outcomes.
Steven C Bondy, Chargé d'Affaires of the US Embassy in Abu Dhabi, said: “Working together to improve energy efficiency is a goal that continues to unite the United States and the UAE.”
“I am pleased that GE is answering that challenge by providing our Emirati partners with solutions to help the UAE achieve its ambitious targets. GE continues to demonstrate why it is a global business leader and has been a committed partner to the UAE for more than 40 years,” he added.
Other technologies in focus at the event included integrated solar solutions, modular battery energy storage solutions, smarter, cleaner steam power technologies, and digital applications for better asset management and dispatch planning.
Dr Dalya Al Muthanna, president and CEO of GE Gulf, said: “The UAE has been a regional leader in terms of designing and adopting innovations that leave a positive impact on society.”
“Our company is proud to be a part of the country’s innovation journey by bringing advanced, record-setting solutions to the UAE, and we remain committed to helping to diversify the energy mix, modernise the power sector and meet national energy security goals,” Al Muthanna added.
GE has supported the development of the energy sector in the UAE and the wider Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) for over 80 years.
Today, GE-built technologies can generate up to 50 per cent of the GCC’s electricity, supporting the energy sector’s transformation by helping to utilise various fuel sources and working across the electricity value network from generation, to transmission and distribution, and deploying advanced digital industrial solutions. – TradeArabia News Service
