Major Russia Order For Siemens
Full turnkey package will supply future LNG production plant
Siemens will deliver the key components for a power station that will supply electricity and heat for the future Yamal liquefied natural gas (LNG) production plant in Northern Russia. The order has been placed by the Russian engineering company Technopromexport (TPE), a wholly owned subsidiary of Rostec State Corp.
The Siemens scope of supply comprises the design, manufacture, factory testing, delivery, installation and commissioning of eight SGT-800 industrial gas turbines as well as nine step-up transformers. Four of these turbines will additionally be equipped with waste heat recovery units.
Siemens said its SGT-800 can produce 47.5 MW with an electrical efficiency of 37.7% at 6608 r/min. All told, the power plant will have an electrical output of 376 MW.
In 2010, the Russian government approved a comprehensive plan geared to develop LNG production on the Yamal Peninsula, located onshore in the Arctic area north of Western Siberia. The plant was selected as a pilot project to process an estimated annual capacity of over 14.5 million tonnes, based on feedstock resources of the South-Tambeyskoye field, located in the north-eastern portion of the Yamal.
Siemens said that its SGT-800 industrial gas turbine combines a reliable robust design with high efficiency and low emissions and is qualified especially for such harsh climate conditions.
