Groundbreaking Held for Slovakian Power Plant
A groundbreaking ceremony for the Malženice combined cycle power plant was recently held in Trnava, Slovakia, an economically developing region. Siemens Energy is erecting the natural-gas-fired plant for E.ON as a turnkey project. The installed gross capacity of 430 MW will be sufficient to supply approximately 600 000 households with eco-friendly electricity. The power plant is scheduled to come online in 2010.
"This plant will feature gas turbine technology providing an efficiency of nearly 58%," said CEO of the Energy Solutions Business Unit of Siemens Energy, Rainer Hauenschild. "This plant will make an important contribution toward reliable, cost-effective and eco-friendly power supply in Slovakia."
The new SCC5-4000F 1 S power plant is a single-shaft configuration, in which the main components are arranged on a single line of shafting. By virtue of its modular design, the plant cannot only be readily adapted to meet specific customer and site requirements, it can also enable high operating flexibility, short start-up and fast load cycling.
In addition to turnkey erection, Siemens Energy will also supply an SGT5-4000F gas turbine, an SST5-5000 steam turbine, the generator and the entire electrical and instrumentation & control equipment. Siemens Austria will provide support for execution of the civil works.
