Siemens and MAPNA to start transfer of know-how for F-class gas turbines
Only six months after signing of the energy agreement with the MAPNA Group, Siemens has shipped the first F-class gas turbine for the project Bandar Abbas to Iran. This is the first stage of the bilateral contract covering the transfer of know-how for F-class gas turbine technology between Siemens and MAPNA. As part of the Bandar Abbas gas-fired power plant, this turbine along with the rest of the equipment which will be provided by MAPNA, will help to cover the country’s continuously rising demand for electricity. In March 2016, Siemens concluded a far-reaching agreement with MAPNA, Iran’s largest power plant EPC contractor, to collaborate on the transfer of know-how for the F-class gas turbine technology to modernize the Iranian power supply system. During the course of this agreement, the two companies also signed a contract that covers not only the two SGT5-4000F gas turbines but also two SGen5-2000H generators and the associated power plant instrumentation and controls. ….
