A Flow Of Power From Siemens To Singapore
Siemens has received an order from Hydrochem, a subsidiary of Hyflux Ltd., to supply the power block and other main components for a new combined-cycle power plant (CCPP) in Singapore. As part of the seawater desalination facility Tuaspring in Singapore, the plant will deliver about 411 MW of electricity.
The natural gas-fired Tuaspring will be built in a single-shaft configuration and integrated into the seawater desalination plant for providing drinking water to Singapore. The CCPP plant will provide the desalination plant with power and draw cooling water from the seawater supply to the desalination plant, Siemens said.
Siemens’ scope of supply will include a Model SGT5-4000F gas turbine, the heat recovery steam generator, one SST5-3000 steam turbine, an SGen5-2000H-series hydrogen-cooled generator and the SPPA-T3000 instrumentation and control system, as well as the associated auxiliary and ancillary systems.
Siemens also has concluded a long-term service agreement with the client covering the major components, and will also supply the plant’s electrical switchgear and transformers. Tuaspring is scheduled to go online in 2014.
