Siemens AG will be part of the team building two natural gas power stations in the North.
The Israeli branch of German engineering giant, Siemens Israel, was invited by RD Energy, a private Israeli energy provider, to supply the huge turbines that will generate the electricity. The company will also be responsible for the factories’ engineering, procurement and construction plan. The power stations, expected to be completed in 2018, will each produce 70 megawatts of electricity.
The plant in Alon Tavor will provide electricity and steam to the Tnuva dairy facility in the Jezreel Valley. The Ramat Gavriel Power Station will power the NILIT factory, which manufactures plastic and textiles.
