The contract for parts, shop repairs and field service for three gas turbines, generators and a steam turbine at Rye House power station in Hertfordshire commenced on 1 January 2010.
The contract will be managed by the Siemens project and order management teams based in Newcastle with all required site works executed by the UK based field service team. The project has already provided a huge boost for Siemens’ Energy Service employees committed to the business’s continued success.
This agreement follows on from the successful five-year business agreement between Siemens and ScottishPower, signed in 2005, to cover parts, shop repair and field service for the gas turbines, generators and steam turbine. The success of the project has contributed to Rye House reducing its emissions and improving efficiency while maintaining a high level of availability and its position as one of the most reliable plants within the ScottishPower generating fleet.
Carl Ennis, Managing Director of Siemens Energy Service Fossil said: “From a UK perspective, this is a very important to the Newcastle facility. The project not only secures the service business for the next ten years but also assists long term business planning and further enhances our existing relationship with one of the UK’s leading energy companies.“
Hugh Finlay, Generation Director at Scottish Power commented: “We’re delighted to build on the excellent relationship that we’ve developed with Siemens over the years. The work Siemens undertakes at Rye House is critical to the long term maintenance of the station and ensures continued leading class plant performance.”
The 10-year business agreement, split into two five-year terms; the first term 2010-2014 and the second term from 2015-2019, will be worth millions to Siemens’ Newcastle operation.
The latest Siemens contract win follows multi-million deals signed with Rio Tinto Alcan and RWE npower in recent months.
