Firm has worked on over 350 power generation projects around the world
Chinese EPC corporation Sepco-2 has awarded Shanahan Engineering a contract to work on the Jazan Integrated Gasification Combined Cycle (JIGCC) Power Block project in Saudi Arabia. The plant is expected to generate over 2,500MW across five blocks using Siemens SGT-6000F technology.
The contract outlines the supply of a commissioning management team, along with Shanahan’s commissioning management program to test and commission the JIGCC plant.
“We had selected Shanahan due to its robust techno-commercial proposal combined with its accumulated experience in commissioning combined cycle power plants, particularly in Saudi Arabia, as well as their overriding attention to HS&E and quality compliance, which are critical on such projects with Saudi Armaco,” said Zhang Ting, project director at Sepco-2.
Commenting on the contract win, James Greaney, CEO and MD of Shanahan Engineering added, “The awarding of a commissioning management services contract at JIGCC demonstrates Sepco-2’s confidence in Shanahan Engineering’s safety, quality and delivery culture that is built from delivering over 350 power generation projects, over more than 35 years, both in Saudi Arabia and across the world. Following the successful commissioning, operations and operations management at PP12 (a 2,175MW CCGT located in Riyadh) by Shanahan in 2016, and the ongoing commissioning of PP13 and PP14 (a combined 3,600MW CCGT in Riyadh), this contract award reaffirms Shanahan’s position as a leader in the regional and global power generation commissioning market.”
Greaney also pointed out that Shanahan will follow Saudi Aramco’s HS&E and quality standards for commissioning.
Anthony Raftopoulos, general manager for Saudi Arabia at Shanahan Engineering concluded, “Shanahan has a long history working throughout Saudi Arabia and the successful commissioning of JIGCC will elevate our brand and reputation into the oil and gas sector. The work will also represent a key milestone in Shanahan’s support of the Kingdom’s Vision 2030 strategy. JIGCC follows on from the recent award of the commissioning and operations contract for PP13 and PP14 to Shanahan by Saudi Electricity Company.”
