German Landfall Station Getting SGT-750 Gas Turbine
Siemens Energy has received an order from WINGAS GmbH for the supply of its SGT-750 industrial gas turbine. Kassel-based WINGAS is a joint venture of the BASF subsidiary Wintershall and the Russian company Gazprom, which operates a Germany-wide natural gas pipeline network extending more than 2500 km.
Siemens is responsible for supply, installation and commissioning of the SGT-750 gas turbine together with the generator and auxiliaries, and for the electrical infrastructure for the grid connection, the company said.
The turbine, with a 36 MW electrical power rating and an electrical efficiency of 38.7%, will be deployed in the landfall station of the Nord Stream pipeline in Lubmin, Germany. The Nord Stream pipeline, which will eventually link Europe with the large natural gas reserves in Siberia, will end at Lubmin near Greifswald in Germany.
The SGT-750 turbine will be deployed in a cogeneration plant at the landfall station, where the electric power generated will be fed into the grid, Siemens said. The heat from the SGT-750 will reheat the pipeline gas, which loses pressure during its journey from Siberia under the cold ocean, and restore it to the temperature needed for further distribution.
