RWG has won a three-year contract to ship gas-fired generators to Metragaz S.A.’s facilities in Morocco. Metragaz, a division of Spain’s Naturgy Energy Group, provides gas compression services for the Maghreb-Europe Gas Pipeline.
Under the contract, RWG will build, configure and ship exchange gas generators to Metragaz in advance of scheduled overhauls and recommissioning in the fleet of Siemens SGT-A35 aero-derivative gas generators.
RWG also will provide field service support to install and recommission each unit, returning time-expired equipment to RWG’s OEM-authorized SGT-A35 service center in Scotland for major overhaul.
“The reliable operation of these Siemens SGT-A35 units is extremely important for our business,” Kamal Daoudi, Director of Maintenance for Metragaz, said in a statement.
“We operate continuously, therefore need to have confidence that our equipment is available at all times. It has also been challenging to build major maintenance events into our schedule due to the downtime we experience on site, therefore the solution provided by RWG is very beneficial”, he added.
For his part, Russell Grant, RWG’s Siemens SGT-A35 Business Manager said: “We are delighted to continue our support for Metragaz and their critical gas compression operation in Morocco”.
Beyond repair and overhaul services, RWG delivers “a comprehensive maintenance solution, including logistics management, customer support and field service”, he stressed.
RWG is a Siemens and Wood company formed in 1990 for maintenance, repair and overhaul of Siemens industrial aero-derivative gas generators and power turbines. It has service centers in Europe, North America and Asia.
