Centrax Package Powers Versailles
12 MW unit meeting 40% of the hot water demand of French city
Centrax, a U.K. gas turbine power-generation packaging company, has completed one of its highest-profile installations in recent years with the commissioning of its first Siemens CX400 package.
The 12 MW unit is now meeting 40% of the hot water demand of the French city of Versailles, on the outskirts of Paris, while also producing electricity for sale to French power utility EDF.
The combined heat and power installation at Versailles is the first Siemens gas turbine to be packaged by Centrax since the two companies forged a recent agreement that enables Centrax to market the SGT-300 and SGT-400 gas turbines in the U.K., France, Italy, the Netherlands and Belgium.
