Dubai, UAE; December 12, 2023 - GE Vernova’s Gas Power business (NYSE:GE) today announced it has signed a multi-year services agreement with the Malaysian and Kuwait-based Engineering Company TNB REMACO – Al Dhow Joint Venture for Shuaiba North Power Station facility in Al Ahmadi, Kuwait. Under the terms of the 5-year agreement, GE Vernova will provide service es for the gas turbines installed at the Kuwait’s Ministry of Electricity & Water & Renewable Energy’s 876 Megawatt (MW) Shuaiba North Power Station.

The agreement is part of a broader effort by the Ministry of Electricity, Water and Renewable Energy to modernize the power generation infrastructure in Kuwait and it was announced at a ceremony at COP28 in Dubai attended by Dato' Abdul Razak bin Abdul Majid, Chairman of Tenaga Nasional Berhad; Datuk Ir.

Shuaiba North Power Station consists of three electricity generating blocks, each equipped with a 9F.03 gas turbine and generator from GE Vernova. Under the agreement, GE Vernova will upgrade the current combustion technology installed on the three gas turbines to the most advanced Dry Low Nox DLN2.6+ combustion system, providing improved combustor operability, reduced emissions levels, extended turndown capability and extended hardware inspection intervals.

The deal will also include the supply of parts, repairs, field services, and GE Vernova’s Asset Performance Management (APM) software in the cloud. By incorporating APM from GE Vernova’s Digital business within the service agreement, Shuaiba Power Station will enable increased levels of predictive maintenance (PdM) for the gas turbines and accessory equipment.
