Siemens Steam Power Island To Poland

€208 million order includes installation consulting; replacement of old units will reduce CO2 emissions by 25%

Posted on June 13, 2014

Siemens has received an order for the supply of a turbine island for the Jaworzno III steam power plant in Poland.

Siemens' scope of supply includes the engineering and the delivery of the turbine island, consisting of an SST5-6000 steam turbine, an SGen-3000W generator, an SCon-7000 condenser, the condensate and feedwater system, and the high-voltage components. The order also includes technical consulting for the installation and commissioning of the supplied components and systems.

With the company’s SST5-6000 steam turbine, the plant will have an installed electrical capacity of 910 MW: the maximum net capacity is specified as 843.5 MW, with a net efficiency of approximately 45.9% thanks to ultra-critical steam quality, Siemens said.

The customer is SPV-Rafako, a 100% affiliate of Rafako, which will erect the plant for Tauron Polska Energia in a consortium with Mostostal Warszawa.

Commissioning is scheduled for April 2019, and the new plant will replace older units currently installed by Tauron. This will result in reduction of CO2 emissions by approximately 25%, Siemens said.
