Siemens Wins Follow-Up Power Plant Component Order from India
Siemens Energy has received an order from its Indian licensee Bharat Heavy Electricals Ltd. (BHEL) for the supply of key components for a 1600 MW coal-fired power plant in India. Delivery of the components is scheduled for late 2011. The order volume amounts to over US$112 million.
The Siemens scope of supply essentially includes an SST5-6000 steam turbine, a water-cooled SGen5-3000W generator, an SPPA-T3000 instrumentation & controls system for the turbine-generators, and components for the second turbine-generator.
Only recently BHEL had placed an order with Siemens for two steam turbine-generators for the Barh II coal-fired power plant. “With this second order from India we are together with our Indian partner BHEL further expanding our leading market position for supercritical steam turbine technology,” said Roland Fischer, CEO of the Products Fossil Power Generation Business Unit of Siemens Energy.
