Second Siemens Order

Siemens to erect power plant in Turkey; long-term service contract for components

Posted on January 13, 2014

Siemens has received an order for the turnkey construction of the Bandirma II combined-cycle (gas and steam) power plant (CCPP) in Turkey. The purchaser is Enerjisa, a joint venture of Sabanci Holding and E.ON.

Bandirma II will be the second power plant in Turkey to be powered by an SGT5-8000H gas turbine. Siemens said these gas turbines have now clocked approximately 50 000 equivalent operating hours at an availability of more than 97%.

Upon completion in the spring of 2016, the plant will have an installed capacity of approximately 600 MW and an efficiency of over 60%, the company said. The natural gas-fired CCPP Bandirma II plant will be built on the southern coast of the Sea of Marmara, near the city of Bandirma in the Balikesir province.

Siemens’ scope comprises not only the turnkey construction of the plant, but also the following main components: an SGT5-8000H gas turbine; a model SST5-5000 steam turbine; an SGen5-3000W water-cooled generator; and the entire electrical system, a 400 kV high-voltage switchgear installation and the SPPAT3000 instrumentation and control system.

The scope also includes a Benson-type heat recovery steam generator (HRSG) manufactured by NEM and the auxiliary and ancillary systems. A long-term service contract was also concluded for the major components, the gas turbine and generator.
