GE Power & Water has been awarded a long-term agreement from Emirates Global Aluminium (EGA) to provide services on turbines that power the aluminium smelter complex in Taweelah, Abu Dhabi.

The contractual services agreement (CSA) will extend its current services for three of the GE-supplied 9FA turbines and add the maintenance and support of two 9FA standby units. The CSA will cover requirements of spare parts, repairs and field services.

In September 2013, Emal started production at its phase-two smelter expansion, which was carried out with a budget of $4.5bn.

EGA is a recent merger between Emal and Dubai Aluminium (Dubal). The combined company is jointly owned by Abu Dhabi’s state-owned Mubadala Development Company and Investment Corporation of Dubai (ICD).
