Siemens to Supply Four Advanced Gas Turbine Packages in the U.S.
Siemens Energy has been awarded a contract to supply four simple cycle gas turbine packages for the Cleveland County generating plant near Grover in North Carolina. The purchaser of the equipment is Birmingham-based Southern Power, a subsidiary of Southern Company, which provides power to the Southeast. The plant will be able to generate approximately 720 megawatts at the summer peak and is scheduled to come on line in early 2012.
The Siemens scope of supply for the Cleveland County Plant encompasses four SGT6-PAC-5000F gas turbine packages, including service contracts. Each package consists of a SGT6-5000F gas turbine, air-cooled generator, auxiliaries, the innovative SPPA-T3000 control system and an option for the exhaust stack. The fast-start capability of the SGT6-5000F gas turbine will allow Southern Power to deliver power to the grid quickly, while also helping to keep per start emissions low.
The Siemens Energy Sector is the world’s leading supplier of a complete spectrum of products, services and solutions for the generation, transmission and distribution of power and for the extraction, conversion and transport of oil and gas.
