Servicing Russia Power Plants
Siemens signs service contract for three of its combined-cycle units
Siemens and open joint stock company Fortum have signed a long-term service contract for the Nyaganskaya GRES combined-cycle power plant in Nyagan, Russia.
Nyaganskaya GRES is the world's largest thermal power plant operating above the latitude of 62o north and the largest thermal power plant greenfield construction project in Northern Russia. The power station consists of three combined-cycle power units totalling 1254 MW. The first unit, with a capacity of 420.9 MW, began commercial operation in April 2013. The commercial operation of the second unit began at the end of 2013, and the third unit is currently under construction.
Under terms of the long-term agreement, Siemens will provide service and maintenance for the gas turbines, steam turbines and generators of all three combined-cycle plants for a period of six years.
For each of the three units of Nyaganskaya GRES, Siemens supplied its SCC5-4000F power train solution consisting of an SGT5-4000F gas turbine, an SST5-3000 steam turbine, an SGen5-2000H generator and the SPPA-T3000 automation system. Earlier this year after the successful Kirishi repowering project, Siemens also signed a long-term service agreement for the Kirishskaya GRES power plant in the Leningrad region.
