Siemens Goes Three For Three
Bangladesh power plant site to have total capacity exceeding 1 GW
Siemens Energy received its third order within a year from Bangladesh for the delivery of power plant components and spare parts.
The customer for the Ashuganj North project is a consortium of two Spanish construction companies UTE TSK and Tecnicas Reunidas, which are building the power plant for the end customer Ashuganj Power Station Co. Ltd.
All three power plant blocks are being built in Ashuganj in eastern Bangladesh, about 100 km northeast of the capital city Dhaka. After the previous component orders for the 225 MW Ashuganj and 400 MW Ashuganj South projects, Siemens is now supplying an SGT5-4000F gas turbine, an SST-3000 steam turbine, and an SGen5-2000H generator – including the supply of operational spare parts – for the Ashuganj North power plant block.
Siemens said it is also providing installation support and is responsible for commissioning the delivered main components. Commissioning is scheduled for mid-2016. The combined-cycle Ashuganj North power plant will have an installed capacity of about 400 MW, giving the Ashuganj power plant site a total capacity of more than 1 GW.
