Siemens to add 700 MW to Rumaila power plant in Iraq
As Iraq seeks to rebuild its power infrastructure, Siemens is supporting the country with upgrading one of its largest gas-fired power plants. The company has won a contract to add 700 megawatts (MW) to the Rumaila Gas Power Plant, which currently has a power generation capacity of 1500 MW. Siemens will supply its highly-efficient SST-5000 steam turbines, ensuring the additional power supply comes at no extra fuel requirement while increasing the overall power plant efficiency to more than 50 percent by converting the facility into combined cycle mode. This upgrade delivered by Siemens equipment will supply around one million Iraqis with clean and efficient electricity.
The heart of every power plant
Siemens Steam Turbines are an essential piece of turbomachinery to many power plants worldwide. They are applied either as a generator drive or a mechanical drive for pumps and compressors. The modular design concept of all steam turbines ensures high flexibility, availability and a reduction of time-to-market.
Continuous technological development
Enhanced steam turbine design
With the Enhanced Platform concept Siemens finalized former company associations by combining all well proven technical features from the several product lines in one common basis. The Enhanced Platform concept follows a modularized system to create customized steam turbine solutions.
Efforts to reduce CO₂ emissions undertaken in the past have focused on large, state-of-the-art steam power plants in the higher output classes. Going forward, the good experiences gained from existing high‑end ultra‑super critical (USC) coal-fired power plants needs to be transferred to power plants of the 350-MW size.

Oberhausen, Germany (2017)
Customer: Oxea GmbH
Scope: SST-600 turbogenerator set, power output: 12 MW, inlet steam temperature: 500°C, inlet steam pressure: 110 bar(a)
The chemical production complex of the company Oxea GmbH, operates around the clock, 365 days a year. The company now installed a modern, high-efficiency turbine-generator unit to replace an historical 63-year-old radial steam turbine from Siemens that has clocked 400,000 operating hours.
The new turboset enhances cost-effectiveness and thus profitability, while increasing energy-cycle efficiency by 15 percent.
