Siemens To Build, Equip German Power Plant

Posted on July 2, 2012

Siemens Energy has received an order between €400 and €500 million to erect the Lausward combined cycle power plant with district heat extraction in Düsseldorf, Germany. The plant will use Siemens H-class combined cycle gas and steam turbine technology.

Stadtwerke Düsseldorf AG (SWD) placed the order for the plant, which will have an output of 595 MW and a net efficiency of more than 61%. Additionally, the generated thermal energy will be used for the district heating system in the city of Düsseldorf.

Besides being responsible for turnkey construction, Siemens will also supply the main components: a SGT5-8000H gas turbine, a SST5-5000 steam turbine, a SGen5-2000H generator and a Benson heat recovery steam generator with an in-house design. The SPPA-T3000 I&C system and other auxiliary systems are also part of the package. Siemens has also signed a long-term maintenance contract for the main components.

The Lausward CCPP plant will be built at the Düsseldorf port on the existing Stadtwerke Düsseldorf power plant site and be designed as a single-shaft plant with gas turbine, generator and steam turbine all arranged on a single shaft. The same configuration was used in the Ulrich Hartmann power plant in Irsching, which has been in commercial operation since June 2011.
