Siemens Hands Off Power To Slovakia

Posted on January 10, 2011

Siemens Energy has handed the Malženice combined cycle power plant in Slovakia over to purchaser E.ON. The new plant incorporates Siemen’s ultra-modern burner technology, as well as online versatility, short start-up times and fast load cycling, Siemens said.

With a 58% efficiency rating, the power plant, which has a net output of 417 MW, will supply electricity to more than 900 000 households.

The natural-gas-fired Malženice power plant is located near Trnava, about 60 km northeast of the capital, Bratislava, Slovakia.

Siemens Energy erected the plant and supplied all the major components – a SGT5-4000F gas turbine, a SST5-5000 steam turbine, the hydrogen-cooled type SGen-2000H generator, the electrical hardware and the SPPA-T3000 I&C system. The power plant is of single-shaft design, with all main components lined up along a single axis, according to the company.
