Meeting Singapore’s Rising Power Demand
Siemens, Samsung C&T hand over 800 MW combined-cycle power plant on Jurong Island
Siemens Energy and its consortium partner Samsung C&T have successfully designed, erected and commissioned the PLP combined-cycle power plant (CCPP) on Jurong Island in Singapore on a full turnkey basis.
Siemens supplied two SGT5-4000F gas turbines, two Model SST5-5000 HI-L steam turbines and two SGen5-2000H hydrogen-cooled generators in single shaft arrangements, as well as the SPPA-T3000 instrumentation and controls system and some parts of the electrical equipment.
Siemens said that with an installed electrical generating capacity of approximately 800 MW and an efficiency of over 58% (based on site conditions), the two new power plant units will make an ecofriendly contribution toward meeting the country’s rising demand for reliable power. PLP’s new plant is the first in Singapore to be completely fueled by liquefied natural gas (LNG) from the new terminal, the company said, adding that the units can also be operated with piped natural gas and fuel oil as backup.
The owner of the plant is Pacific Light Power Pte. Ltd. (PLP).
