Siemens Gas and Power LLP Kazakhstan and JSC Mangistaumunaigaz have signed a nine-year service contract for two STG-800 gas turbine units in operation at the Kalamkas oil and gas field in Kazakhstan.
The long-term program includes modernization of equipment, digital services, power and efficiency improvements, extended maintenance intervals after overhauls, and corrective maintenance, said Siemens. The 45-MW units were commissioned and put into operation in 2014.
With the first major overhaul in 2020, each gas turbine will be upgraded as follows:
- Power will be increased from 45 MW to 47.5 MW
- Upgrade of the air intake system
- Gas turbine control system modernization and upgrade with possibility to work in different site-specific operating modes
- Extended maintenance intervals (x1.5 times in comparison)
- 24/7 remote connection to Siemens centers in Moscow, Russia, and Finspong, Sweden
According to Siemens, this agreement, like all of its service agreements, is customized to meet the customer’s specific requirements. This nine-year contract also includes customer-requested services such as corrective maintenance to cover unexpected issues and an extended gas turbine control system upgrade.
“Maintenance of power equipment delivered worldwide is of utmost importance for our company. We have innovative solutions and qualified specialists to provide reliable and efficient service,” said Maxim Zubov, CEO of Siemens Gas and Power LLP Kazakhstan. “The nine-year contract that we have signed with JSC Mangistaumunaigaz is a new stage of cooperation between our companies that marks increased confidence and mutual understanding between the partners.”
