Siemens has concluded a framework agreement with China’s biggest oil and gas corporation, China National Petroleum Corporation (CNPC), to supply the entire electrical engineering and electrical systems for the first phase of the planned Guangdong Petrochemical Refinery in China. The refinery will be built in Jieyang in the southern Chinese province of Guangdong. Once completed, it will be the largest refinery in China. The first stage of the plant complex is scheduled for commissioning in late 2015.
The framework contract covers the supply of electrical equipment and control systems for the entire refinery. This includes SF6 gas-insulated switchgear stations (GIS) with a rating of 220 kV as well as 220kV/110kV power transformers and 35kV/10kV distribution transformers, basic automation systems, PCS7 control systems, and 35 kV gas-insulated and 10 kV air-insulated switchgears. Protection and relay devices complete the current distribution. Under the terms of a strategic cooperation agreement signed with CNPC in 2012, Siemens will also provide compressors for the air separation process and wastewater treatment solutions for the project.
All the three Siemens sectors Energy, Industry and Infrastructure & Cities are involved in this project.
