Siemens Orders Total US$105 Million
Siemens Power Generation (PG) has announced orders for industrial turbomachinery equipment, with a combined value of US$105 million. The company will provide six gas turbines to Russia, Venezuela, Egypt and the United Arab Emirates and four steam turbines to Qatar and Poland. The Venezuelan state utility Enelbar ordered two dual fuel, SGT-800 (formerly GTX100) gas turbine-generators, each with a 60 Hz output of 45 MW for installation at a new power plant in Palavecino in northwest Venezuela. These are the first SGT-800 turbines supplied to South America.
One SGT-600 (previously called GT10B) turbine-generator, rated at 24 MW, will be supplied to the Chepetsk machinery manufacturing plant in Glasov, Russia and will be integrated into an existing steam turbine-based CHP plant run on natural gas. Moscow-based TechnoServ A.S. has ordered a 7.9 MW SGT-300 (formerly called Tempest) gas turbine-generator for Severnaya Neft in Usinsk, which is part of the Rosneft group of companies. This is the first such machine supplied by Siemens to the Russian Federation. Casing head gas, containing hydrogen sulfide (H2S) which is normally flared off, will be used to power this gas turbine.
Another SGT-300 gas-fired turbine-generator will be supplied to Petrofac International Ltd. on behalf of the Crescent Petroleum Company in the United Arab Emirates. This unit will supply power for a new gas processing facility at the SajGas gas plant in Sharjah, which is being built by Crescent Petroleum on behalf of SajGas Co. A 4.7-MW SGT-100 (formerly called Typhoon) gas turbine-generator will be supplied to Engineering for the Petroleum Process Industry (ENPPI) in Egypt. The machine will be installed at a facility operated by Burullus Gas Company and will provide electrical power for the Sapphire field onshore processing terminal.
JGC Corporation of Japan ordered three SST-400 (formerly called ST4) backpressure steam turbines with an output of 32 MW each on behalf of Dolphin Energy Ltd. of the United Arab Emirates. The steam from the Siemens turbines will be used in the Ras Laffan gas separation plant. Siemens also will supply a 97 MW condensing extraction steam turbine to EC Warszawskie, Poland, for the Zeran heating plant in Warsaw. The order was awarded by a consortium involving Polimex - Mostostal Siedlce S.A. and Zaklady Remontowe Energetyki Warszawa. The Siemens PG scope of supply includes an SST-600 (previously called NK) steam turbine-generator, along with the feedwater heater and district heaters. The new plant will replace two obsolete turbine-generators rated at 20 and 35 MW.
