Third overhaul at Takreer’s 500MW plant

Alstom will upgrade the gas turbines at the 500MW Abu Dhabi Oil Refinery Company (Takreer) power plant in Ruwais.

The French power company will provide spare parts for overhaul and partially upgrade the four gas turbines. The French company commissioned Takreer’s power and desalination plant in 1999.

“This will be the third major overhaul that we will be executing at the Ruwais plant,” said Sylvian Hijazi, country manager UAE, Alstom.

The upgrade is part of a major overhaul of the plant, due to be completed by the end of 2013.
