Siemens Combined-cycle Plant for Italy
Siemens Power Generation (PG) announced it is to build a turnkey combined-cycle power plant in Livorno-Ferraris in northern Italy for Milan-based E.ON Italia Produzione S.p.A., a subsidiary of E.ON Kraftwerke GmbH. With a capacity of 800 MW, the plant will be able to meet the entire electricity needs of Milan’s 1.2 million inhabitants in an economical and environmentally compatible manner. The value of the contract, including the simultaneously signed long-term service agreement, is approximately US$478 million.
The natural gas-fired power plant will be built in Livorno Ferraris in the province of Vercelli between Turin and Milan and will be the first turnkey combined-cycle project that Siemens PG has implemented for E.ON. Siemens will supply two gas turbines, one steam turbine, three generators, two heat-recovery steam generators, and the entire mechanical and electrical equipment. Advanced instrumentation and control systems supplied by Siemens will also be installed. In addition, the company will handle gas turbine maintenance for a period of up to twelve years. Plant commissioning is scheduled for 2007.
