Siemens Holds Groundbreaking Ceremony for 433 MW, Eco-Friendly Power Plant
A groundbreaking ceremony recently took place for the Gönyü combined cycle power plant in Hungary, a Siemens Energy turnkey project for E.ON. The Gönyû plant is located in Györ-Sopron, a region experiencing highly dynamic economic development. At 433 megawatts the installed gross capacity of the natural-gas-fired plant will be sufficient to supply approximately 600,000 Hungarian households with eco-friendly electricity.
“This plant will feature the technology that not only has a solid track record in almost 200 projects worldwide but has also almost become a tradition in the partnership between Siemens and E.ON,“ said Michael Becker, CFO of the Fossil Power Generation Division of Siemens Energy. “At 58 percent the plant’s efficiency is a top world ranking today. This plant will attain the highest savings in CO2 emissions possible today for fossil-fueled power plants. The power plant will make a significant contribution toward reliable, cost-effective and climate-compatible power supply in Hungary,” added Becker.
In addition to turnkey erection Siemens will supply the main plant components including an SGT5-4000F gas turbine, a steam turbine and a hydrogen-cooled generator. The company will also supply the heat-recovery steam generator, the mechanical equipment, and the electrical and instrumentation systems. The order also includes a maintenance agreement covering a period of nine years.
