Siemens to erect turnkey combined-cycle power plant in Turkey

Siemens has received an order for the turnkey construction of the Bandirma II combined-cycle (gas and steam) power plant (CCPP) in Turkey.

The purchaser is Enerjisa, a joint venture of Sabanci Holding and E.ON. Following the Samsun project, which is currently under construction, Bandirma II will be the second power plant in Turkey to be powered by an SGT5-8000H gas turbine, marking the sale of 28 of this model of gas turbine by Siemens worldwide.
These gas turbines, which have proven themselves in commercial operation since 2011, have now clocked up approximately 50,000 equivalent operating hours at an availability of more than 97%. Upon completion in the spring of 2016, this plant will have an installed capacity of around 600 megawatts (MW) and an efficiency of over 60%.

The natural-gas-fired CCPP Bandirma II will be built on the southern coast of the Sea of Marmara, near the city of Bandirma in the Balikesir province.

Rainer Hauenschild, head of Gas Turbine Power Plant Solutions at Siemens Energy, said: “We are very excited about working together with Enerjisa. As a manufacturer of turnkey installations, our customers profit from our expertise in ideally integrating mechanical, electrical and chemical processes optimally with our products in fossil-fired power plants. Therefore we can fulfill the needs of our customers at best.

“In this project, too, we will live up to our very high claim concerning quality and safety in project engineering and execution and during the construction and installation phase.”

The dynamic power plant market in Turkey calls for flexible and eco-friendly power generation facilities that are cost-efficient at the same time, so that they are right at the top in the merit order. The Bandirma II combined-cycle power plant is of single-shaft design. Such plants are highly flexible and can be run up to full power in only 30 minutes. With load ramping of gradients of up to 50 MW per minute, they also respond very quickly to fluctuations in power demand and so can help to stabilize the grid.

Highly efficient combined-cycle power plants and the associated service are part of Siemens’ Environmental Portfolio. Around 43 percent of its total revenue stems from green products and solutions. That makes Siemens one of the world’s leading providers of eco-friendly technology.

Siemens delivers 20 industrial gas turbines to Thailand

Siemens Energy has received orders for a total of 20 SGT-800 industrial gas turbines from Thailand.

The turbines will be used in various combined cycle cogeneration power plants within Thailand. The contract is part of the Thai government’s programme to support small power producers.

Each of the units sold has a capacity of 50.5 megawatts (MW), so the combined total capacity of the 20 gas turbines is over 1,000 MW. Siemens delivers also five industrial steam turbines of type SST-400 for the customer ABP. Including installation and commissioning, the order value for Siemens is over $403 million.

Thierry Toupin, CEO of the Business Unit Gas Turbines/Generators at Siemens Energy, said: “All of these turbines were able to meet or even exceed the contractually promised values in terms of capacity and efficiency. This success was a decisive factor in the Thai small power producers opting once again for Siemens’ SGT-800 gas turbines.”

“With the Siemens SGT-800 gas turbines, we are able to generate electricity very efficiently, allowing us to decrease our fuel consumption,” explained Khun Preeyanart Soontornwata, President of ABP. “As a result, we can reduce our costs per kilowatt-hour generated.”

The 20 Siemens SGT-800 industrial gas turbines will be used in ten different plants located in industrial parks. All of the 20 units are being manufactured at the Siemens plant in Finspong, Sweden.

The order is part of the third phase of the Thai government’s programme to support small-scale electricity producers. The amount of support provided depends on the amount of primary energy saved by the plants. A requirement to receive the subsidy is that at least 5% of the thermal energy produced in the power plants in the form of steam or hot water be made available to consumers in the industrial sector. This increases the fuel utilisation rate of the entire power plant.

The Siemens SGT-800 industrial gas turbine combines a reliable robust design with high efficiency and low emissions. The turbine offers broad flexibility in fuels, operation conditions, maintenance concepts, package solutions and ratings. The SGT-800 turbine is suitable for power generation or cogeneration in simple or combined cycle modes. It combines a reliable robust design with high efficiency and low emissions. The turbine offers broad flexibility in fuels, operation conditions, maintenance concepts, package solutions and ratings.
