Siemens Weaves Turbine Into Textile Operation
Siemens Energy has received an order for its SGT-750 industrial gas turbine from Energia MK KF, S.A. de C.V., a subsidiary of textile manufacturer Grupo Kaltex.
The turbine will be used in a 36 MW combined heat and power plant, which will supply electricity to the textile facilities operated by Grupo Kaltex in Altamira, Tamaulipas, Mexico. It is expected to be operational in October 2013.
One-third of the total electrical capacity will be used for the Kaltex facility on site and two-thirds will be fed into the grid for other Kaltex facilities in Mexico. The plant will meet 40% of Kaltex’s power needs in Mexico. The SGT-750 turbine will generate all the process steam needed for producing synthetic fibers.
The Siemens scope of supply includes supply, installation and commissioning of the SGT-750 gas turbine together with the electrical generator, heat recovery steam generator (HRSG) with supplementary firing system and auxiliary systems.
