Steam Turbine Order For South Korea
Follow-on order part of plant’s fourth expansion
Siemens Energy has received an order from South Korean company eTEC E&C for a two-cylinder steam turbine with an associated generator for the Seagull Project, a power plant to be built in the Gunjang industrial zone in the city of Gunsan in western South Korea.
As the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) company, eTEC E&C will construct the 250 MW cogeneration plant for its subsidiary Gunjang Energy Co. Ltd. The Seagull plant will provide heat and electricity cogeneration for the public grid and the surrounding industries.
Siemens' scope of delivery includes a two-cylinder steam turbine set with reheat capability, consisting of an SST-800 turbine and a double-flow SST-500 turbine, as well as an associated SGen6-100A generator. Both steam turbines will be arranged on one shaft and drive the same generator.
The order is part of the Seagull power plant's fourth expansion phase – Siemens has already delivered an SST-600 and an SST-300 industrial steam turbine, both of which are in operation, and a second SST-600 turbine is currently nearing completion.
Delivery is scheduled for June 2015.
