Siemens Sending Power To Peru
Siemens Energy has received a US$80 million (€55.3 million) contract from Termochilca SAC for the turnkey construction of the Santo Domingo de los Olleros simple cycle power plant in Peru, with an option for a combined cycle plant in the next phase. The simple cycle plant is scheduled to start commercial operation in late 2012.
Siemens will build the power plant, which will be located in the Chilca district in Cañete province, Lima region, Peru, with an installed capacity of 200 MW. Siemens will be responsible for the plant’s full turnkey supply, which includes engineering, procurement and construction.
The main equipment includes an SGT6-5000F gas turbine, electric generator SGEN6-1000A and the entire electrical and SPPA-T3000 instrumentation & control equipment. Siemens also signed a long-term service agreement with Termochilca.
Power demand in Peru will increase over the next five years from 6.7 to 11 GW in 2016. With the power plant, Termochilca aims to meet the growing power demand in Lima.
