Dutch Utility Orders Power Plant, Supplies From Siemens
Siemens Energy has received an order from the Netherlands for turnkey construction of a combined cycle power plant. Dutch utility Nuon, a subsidiary of Vattenfall A.B., placed the order for the 435 MW power plant, which should supply more than 750 000 Dutch households with power, as well as provide district heat for about 25 000 households through steam extraction.
Siemens will also supply the plant’s main components, such as an SCC5-4000F gas turbine, an SST5-5000 steam turbine, an SGen5-2000H generator, electrical equipment and a SPPA-T3000 I&C systems. Siemens will also provide maintenance of the gas and steam turbines, as well as the generator.
The project marks Siemens fifth order in the Netherlands since 2007 for a turnkey combined cycle power plant. The plant is designed to have an efficiency level of 59% and a low nitrogen oxide output, said the company.
