Yokogawa Electric Corporation announces that its subsidiary, Yokogawa Middle East B.S.C.©, has received an order to supply control systems and operator training simulators for the Shoaiba Ⅱ combined cycle power plant*1, which is being built in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia for the Saudi Electricity Company.

Located south of Jedda on the Red Sea coast, the Shoaiba Ⅱ combined cycle power plant will have ten gas turbines and two steam turbines with a combined output of 1,200 MW (Two Block of 600 MW each) and is scheduled to start operation in June 2013. This order was received from Daelim Industrial Co., Ltd.*2

The order is for a comprehensive solution comprising a CENTUM® VP control system and a simulator which will be used to train operators under complex simulated plant operating conditions. The CENTUM VP control system at the plant will be for the integrated control of heat recovery steam generators (HRSG) and gas turbines. For the systems and products that make up these solutions, Yokogawa Middle East and its subsidiary Yokogawa Saudi Arabia will be responsible for project execution, including engineering, testing, installation and commissioning.

Yokogawa Middle East was able to secure this order due to factors such as Yokogawa's top platinum rating for Saudization under the Saudi government's Nitaqat program. This can be attributed to the establishment by 2007 of two Yokogawa companies, Yokogawa Saudi Arabia and Yokogawa Services Saudi Arabia, to provide sales, engineering, and after sales services in the Kingdom. Also taken into consideration were Yokogawa's activities to promote professional education and provide employment in the Kingdom. Additional contributing factors were the engineering capabilities acquired by Yokogawa through the above mentioned activities, the close project support afforded through the global cooperation of the Yokogawa Group and the high functionality of Yokogawa's plant simulation solution for control function testing and operator training.

With an extensive track record in working for oil and petrochemical major companies in the Kingdom, which holds one of the world's largest oil reserves and is a global center for production and exports, Yokogawa is well positioned to take advantage of this opportunity. Encouraged by its success in being awarded this contract, Yokogawa aims to expand its controls business in the Kingdom by further targeting the power plant sector and other energy-related markets.

*1 Combined cycle power plant
A plant that uses both gas and steam turbines. The gas turbines generate electricity and their exhaust heat is used to generate steam, which is sent to the steam turbines to generate additional electricity. This is a very efficient power generation method that helps to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

*2 Daelim Industrial Co., Ltd
An engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) contractor that is part of South Korea's Daelim Group. In 1966, the company became the first Korean EPC contractor to do business internationally, and is now expanding its business in the oil, petrochemical, power, and other industries in China, East Asia, and the Middle East.
