Naval Base To Use Waste For Power
Siemens Energy has received an order from Imtech Deutschland GmbH & Co. KG for a steam turbine generator to be used in a waste-to-energy plant equipped with combined power and heat generation in Plymouth, England.
As the general contractor for the Water-Steam-Cycle, Imtech will construct the plant for the Mannheim, Germany-based EfW specialist MVV Umwelt. Once commissioned in 2014, the power plant – with an electrical capacity up to 25 MW – is designed to cover the heat demand of Plymouth’s Naval Base with low CO2 emissions, Siemens said.
The plant is expected to use 245 000 metric tonnes of household, business, and industrial waste to generate electricity and heat for Plymouth’s Naval Base. Construction of the power plant, with a maximum process steam extraction of up to 30 tonnes per hour, is scheduled to begin in spring.
Siemens is responsible for the delivery, installation, and commissioning of the SST-400 steam turbine, including gearboxes and oil system as well as the electrical generator and auxiliary systems. The steam generator installed in the plant produces steam that drives the turbine to produce electricity.
