Manah Power Plant is one of the major power station in Sultanate of Oman, begun its operations in October 1996. The plant started with a capacity of 90MW power generation that comprised of 3 GE frame 6 Gas Turbines. Subsequently, in May 2000, the plant capacity was improved by a further 180MW power generation that included 2 GE Frame 9E Gas Turbines. The total capacity of the plant is 270MW.
The visit was a good experience and exposure to our B. Tech Electrical Power & Mechanical Engineering Students towards the industrial life and the real-time operations of major components in the plant. Students are benefited and enjoyed the technical details provided by the industry. The plant manager & his colleagues are happy and appreciate our students after the question & answer session. The visit seems to be very informative and gives good learning hands-on experience to the students.
On behalf of ILC, many thanks to Mr. Saif Nasser Al Sinawi & his Team at Manah gas power plant and ILC extends the sincere gratitude to all the supporting hands at Nizwa College of Technology towards the industrial visit.
