GE Wins Contracts Of Approximately $500 Million At EMAL, One Of The World’s Largest Aluminum Producing Facilities

Stocks in this article: GE

GE (NYSE: GE) has received contracts totaling approximately $500 million to provide equipment and long-term services, directly and via engineering procurement contractors, for the Emirates Aluminium (EMAL) smelter complex in Abu Dhabi. The project is expected to result in lower emissions, addressing the United Arab Emirates’ (UAE) goal to achieve cleaner and more efficient industrial growth and enabling EMAL to produce aluminum with better fuel efficiency.

“A reliable and efficient supply of power is key to the success of our mission, as electricity accounts for a significant portion of the cost of producing aluminum,” said EMAL President and CEO Saeed Fadhel Al Mazrooei. “GE is successfully supporting both our Phase 1 and 2 projects with advanced power generation technology, while the new service agreements for Phase 1 offer equipment upgrades to the latest and most efficient technologies.”

GE will supply gas and steam turbines, generators and a plant-wide control system for the Phase 2 expansion project that will position EMAL as one of the largest single-site aluminum producers in the world. In addition, GE will provide its latest technology upgrades for its gas turbines currently operating Phase I of the EMAL complex. The technology upgrades will include GE’s latest DLN 2.6+ combustion technology, which is expected to lower nitrogen oxide (NO x) emissions, as well as extend the lifespan of gas turbines parts by up to three times.

GE’s new equipment contract with Samsung C&T, the Korean engineering procurement and construction company building the new combined-cycle power plant for EMAL phase 2, includes three Frame 9F 3-series gas turbine generators and two SC5 steam turbine generators. When complete, the EMAL Phase 2 power plant will have the capacity to generate more than 1,000 megawatts of power to support EMAL’s expanded operations.

GE’s advanced technology 9F 3-series gas turbines deliver power with high efficiency, availability, reliability and low emissions. The gas turbine is a 50-hertz member of GE’s family of F-class gas turbines, proven in more than 45 million hours of commercial service around the globe. GE’s SC5 steam turbines provide high reliability and availability in today’s demanding energy environment and utilize advanced technology enhancements for combined cycle applications with GE heavy-duty gas turbines.

The EMAL aluminum complex is situated in the Khalifa Industrial Zone Abu Dhabi (KIZAD) in Al Taweelah, Abu Dhabi. EMAL, a joint venture between Mubadala Development Co. and Dubai Aluminium, serves more than 150 customers in 36 countries.
