Sending Steam Turbines To Turkey
Two 255 MW steam turbines to be installed in lignite-fired plant
Siemens Energy is supplying two steam turbines for the lignite-fired Soma Kolin Power Plant being erected in the city of Soma in Turkey's western province of Manisa.
The Soma plant will consist of two Model SST5-5000 HM-N steam turbines – with the associated auxiliary and ancillary systems – that are designed to deliver an electrical generating capacity of 255 MW.
Siemens’ customer is the Chinese enterprise Harbin Electric International Co. Ltd. (HEI), which is constructing the 510 MW facility on a turnkey basis for a Turkish company.
The machines will be delivered between August 2015 and January 2016, and the plant is scheduled to commence commercial operation in April 2017, the company said.
