SAG Moves Siemens Turbines in Iraq

SAG handles valuable cargoes from Um Qasir Port to Shat Al-Basra power plant

SAG has successfully transported two 400-ton steam turbines for Siemens. The heavy cargoes arrived at Um Qasir Port in Basra, northern Iraq. SAG oversaw the discharge and safe loading of the turbines onto specialized trailers for the journey south.

The Siemens turbines are part of a plant expansion at Shat Al-Basra power plant, located just over 60 kilometers from the port.

In 2018, Siemens won the power contract to add 650 megawatts to the plant from China Machinery Engineering Corporation (CMEC). In addition to increasing Shat Al-Basra's power capacity, the new steam turbines will upgrade the plant to a modern combined cycle generation system, which means no extra fuel equipment and an efficiency gain of 50 percent.
