Siemens Receives Order to Provide Substation in Connecticut
Siemens Energy has recently been awarded a contract by the EPC Contractor O&G Industries, Inc. to provide a turnkey 345 kV GIS substation for the Kleen Energy 620 megawatt combined cycle power plant in Connecticut. Siemens will also provide the major rotating and plant control equipment for this project under separate contracts. The new power plant required the new substation to tie into existing transmission lines.
Siemens will provide five bays of its 8DQ1 345 kV gas insulated switchgear manufactured in Germany. Under this contract, Siemens Energy will engineer, procure and construct the substation, while civil services will be engineered and executed by O&G. The substation is expected to be completed in November 2009 and is expected to be on line 2-3 weeks thereafter.
In 2008, Siemens was awarded a contract to supply two SGT6-5000F gas turbines with a nominal capacity of 200MW each and one SST6-5000F steam turbine (275MW) for the 620 megawatt (MW) combined cycle power plant in Middletown, Connecticut. The turbines are expected to be delivered to the customer site in the first half of 2009. The plant will provide sufficient power to supply approximately 275,000 households with electricity
