GE Vernova Launches First H-Class Gas Turbine in Saudi Arabia

GE Vernova Inc. announced the successful launch of the first H-class gas turbine unit completed at the GE Saudi Advanced Turbines (GESAT) facility in Dammam, GE Vernova announced.

In the presence of Saudi Minister of Energy Prince Abdulaziz bin Salman, GE Vernova held an official ceremony at GESAT.

GESAT is a joint investment designed in collaboration with Dussur, the first facility in Saudi Arabia and the region to manufacture H-Class gas turbines and components.

The newly completed H-Class unit will power the Jafurah Cogeneration Independent Steam and Power Plant (ISPP).

Jafurah will be the most efficient power plant in Saudi Arabia upon operation.

Furthermore, the officials expect that Jafurah gas field will produce up to 630,000 barrels of natural gas liquids and condensates, and over 420 million standard cubic feet (MMSCFD) of ethane per day, by 2030.

The project stands as a testament to Saudi Arabia’s commitment to elevating the energy sector and effectively playing its role in achieving the Kingdom’s diversification plan, Saudi Vision 2030.

The successful rollout of the unit also mirrors GE Vernova’s dedication to bringing the state-of-the-art technologies to flourish the Kingdom’s energy sector and support its sustainability goals.

“We are incredibly proud of GESAT’s accomplishments in driving industrial localization within the Kingdom’s energy sector in support of Saudi Vision 2030,” President of GE Vernova in Saudi Arabia Hisham Al-Bahkali said.

Moreover, GE Vernova also signed a memorandum of understanding with Saudi EXIM to enable the export of goods and services of GE Vernova from Saudi Arabia through lending and insurance support from Saudi EXIM Bank.
