Siemens Energy has been awarded the engineering, procurement and construction contract for the San Gabriel combined-cycle power plant (CCPP) to be built in the Philippines.
After the Santa Rita and San Lorenzo CCPPs, the San Gabriel facility will be the third that Siemens has constructed and operated as a turnkey power plant in the Philippines. San Gabriel will be built in Batangas City, which is located in the Calabarzon region approximately 110 km south of the capital, Manila.
Siemens will be supplying an SGT6-8000H gas turbine, an SST6-5000 steam turbine, a hydrogen-cooled SGen6-2000H generator, a Benson type heat recovery steam generator (HRSG), the electrical engineering, as well as the SPPA-T3000 control system. Siemens said the plant will have a power output capacity of up to 414 MW and an efficiency of more than 60%.
As the general contractor, Siemens’ Philippine subsidiary, Siemens, Inc., will handle turnkey construction of the plant. The customer is First NatGas Power Corp., a 100% owned company of the Philippine independent power producer First Gen Corp.
Commissioning is scheduled for March 2016. The order, including a long-term maintenance contract, is valued at about €395 million.
