Siemens Hands Over Plant In Wales
Siemens Energy handed over the Severn Power combined cycle power plant, in Uskmouth, which is near Newport, Wales, U.K., one week ahead of schedule to the customer DONG Energy.
Siemens built the 834 MW power plant as a turnkey project on the site of a decommissioned coal-fired unit. The plant comprises two single-shaft units, with the main components being arranged in a single line of shafting.
Siemens supplied two SGT5-4000F gas turbines, two SST5-5000 steam turbines, two hydrogen-cooled generators, the entire electrical equipment and an SPPA-T3000 I&C system. The company also signed a 16-year service agreement. Siemens will not only maintain but also operate the plant.
Siemens burner technology has helped keep the plant’s nitrogen oxide emission levels low at 15 parts per million (ppm). With the plant’s efficiency of 58% and low NOx emissions, Severn Power will supply more than 1.5 million households with electricity, according to Siemens.
