Reliable and efficient power generationManaging a rising power demand with reliable and efficient turbines and innovative service solutions. This is how Dubai, the city that never sleeps, gets the power to satisfy its need for air conditioning cooling peaks in summer; allowing even the Penguins to stay cool in the desert.
Competitive Energy Efficiency - for comfortable living no matter the temperature outside
How to satisfy an ever growing demand for power in a city that never sleeps? How to meet sustainability and growth targets at the same time as conserving energy resources? Dubai's roadmap for 2021 thrives to combine economic growth, sustainable energy supply and environmental conservation. With its Clean Energy Strategy 2050, the biggest city in the UAE has set ambitious targets to diversify its energy mix and manage electricity demand. The energy mix is proposed to be generated by 25% solar power, 7% nuclear, 7% clean coal and 61% gas by 2030. Siemens supports the Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) to turn this vision into reality. Strongly committed to become a sustainable innovative world-class utility, DEWA provides Dubai with reliable power generated by Siemens E and F class turbines at its Jebel Ali Power Plant. Siemens latest technologies applied in the Power Plant include Wet Compression which is perfectly suited for upgrading gas turbines in hot ambient regions and is an ideal solution to meet the high demand peaks during the summer months. The output of the gas turbine is raised without significantly increasing the required fuel, resulting in a higher efficiency rate for the gas turbines. With one push of a button the output is increased by 15%. Furthermore, this solution is easy to maintain and offers great operational flexibility to the plant operator. At the same time, wet compression helps reduce NOx emissions and supports the UAE’s strategy for sustainable development and green growth. Siemens efficient turbine technology powers approximately 37% of the UAE’s and 68% of Dubai's installed electricity capacity.
