Big Orders For Siemens In Thailand
Siemens Energy has received contracts from Thailand for 16 SGT-800 industrial gas turbines for combined cycle cogeneration plants (CCCP) under Thailand´s Small Power Producer (SPP) program.
For the end customer Gulf JP, an independent power producer headquartered in Bangkok, Thailand, Siemens will supply 14 gas turbines for seven projects. Purchaser of two SGT-800 units is Yokohama-based Toshiba Plant Systems & Services Corp., which will build a CCPP, set for commercial operation in September 2012, as engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) for the end user Amata B. Grimm Power 3 Ltd. Long-term service agreements were also signed for the projects.
The seven two-unit contracts for Gulf JP are for gas turbines to be deployed at various sites. For the four gas-fired cogeneration power projects Saraburi A, Saraburi B, Industrial Cogen and Combined Heat and Power located in Saraburi province, Siemens will supply eight gas turbines. Two SGT-800 turbines will be deployed in Chachoengsao province for the Chachoengsao Cogeneration power project. The other two projects with four SGT-800 are RIL Cogeneration and Pathum Cogeneration, which are located in Rayong province and Pathumthani province respectively. The combined capacity of the plants is approximately 800 MW, with steam to be exported to industrial users.
The Thai government’s Small Power Producer program requires the plants to export at least 5% of their thermal energy in the form of steam or hot water to industrial users in the area to improve the plants’ overall efficiency.
