The company will also supply the Teleperm XP instrumentation and control equipment, and the two heat-recovery steam generators.

All of the power generated in Al Jubail will be used in the petrochemical plant that produces basic chemical substances. Following the recent posting of a power plant order from Kuwait, Siemens PG can further expand its strong position in the Gulf region with the project in Saudi Arabia.
