Turbines To Bangladesh Plants

Contracts received from companies responsible for turnkey construction

Posted on June 19, 2013

Siemens has secured turbine packages contracts for two power plant projects in Bangladesh, supporting the country’s steady economic growth.

The company said its scope of delivery for the Ashuganj 225 MW power unit consists of an SGT5-PAC 2000E package, which comprises an SGT5-2000E gas turbine, an SST5-600 steam turbine and two SGen5-100A generators.

For the Ashuganj 385 MW combined-cycle power unit, Siemens said it will be delivering an SCC5-PAC 4000F/3000 package consisting of an SGT5-4000F gas turbine, an SST-3000 steam turbine and an SGen 5-2000H generator.

The end customer for both projects is the Ashuganj Power Station Company Ltd. (APSCL). Siemens received the order for Ashuganj 225 MW plant from Daewoo International, which is responsible for turnkey construction of the power plant. For the Ashuganj 385 MW station, Siemens was contracted by UTE TSK-Inelectra, which is also responsible for turnkey construction.

Siemens reported that Bangladesh's economy is growing steadily, most recently at more than 5% annually, with more than 50% of the country's income-earning population working in agriculture. Besides coal, Bangladesh also has natural gas deposits that are tapped primarily for the country's own use.
