Siemens Hands Off Power To Slovakia
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.
