QinetiQ to assess power plant performance in Jordan

29 January 2008 – QinetiQ has announced today that its industrial power group has won a $1m contract from Jordan’s Central Electricity Generating Company (CEGCO) to provide independent performance assessment of its power plant at seven power stations.

QinetiQ will assess 31 gas and steam turbines following the privatisation of CEGCO by the Jordanian government, which sold a majority stake in the company in September 2007.

The performance assessment will take place over the next six months to establish the main technical parameters of the selected plant and generating units..

The team will assess the performance of CEGCO’s entire fleet and the power output to the national grid in Jordan.
