industrial gas turbines will provide peaking power to help improve the
reliability and flexibility of the Belarusian power grid
Siemens will deliver the power generation equipment for two
new peaking power plants in the Republic of Belarus. The customer is the
state-owned utility company RUE Vitebskenergo. The new plants will be operated in
conjunction with the existing Lukomlskaya and Novopolotskaya power
the Vitebsk region in northern Belarus and will help ensure the
reliability and flexibility of the country’s power grid. The plants are expected to go into
operation in the end of 2021.
- Cooperation aims to test renewable fuels at the Rya CHP plant located in the energy port of Gothenburg
- First phase with Göteborg Energi is to validate 3D-printed burners at the Rya plant
By 2030, the ambition is that all district heating in Gothenburg, Sweden, will be produced by renewable or recovered energy sources. With this in mind Göteborg Energi and Siemens have come together in a cooperation agreement with the aim of testing state-of-the-art gas turbine technology that enables the operation of renewable fuels in the Rya combined heat and power (CHP) plant, which is today powered by natural gas.
- Digital solutions provide for improved operational efficiency and reduced emissions
Siemens will equip Lalitpur Power Generation Company Limited (LPGCL), a Bajaj Group company, with advanced digital solutions for its power plant located in Lalitpur, Uttar Pradesh, India.
- Maximizing performance and efficiency with innovative drives solution
- Three power plants will be equipped with latest-generation power generation equipment
The current increase of packaging and pulp demand in the fiber industry is accompanied by numerous challenges, including fluctuating costs of energy and raw materials. Siemens energy-efficient concepts and solutions are designed to help the paper industry set new global standards for efficiency, performance, and sustainability. A recent example is a project in Germany, where Siemens will help paper and packaging producer Palm increase its plant efficiency by providing a holistic energy concept. This includes the electrification of a new paper-machine production line and a new power plant equipped with the latest-generation gas turbine.
- Contract awarded to Siemens for 2.2 megawatt PEM electrolysis plant
- Salzgitter Wind Hydrogen energy project gathers pace
- Goal is to achieve low-CO2 steelmaking based on Salzgitter’s innovative SALCOS technology concept
Salzgitter Flachstahl GmbH (SZFG) has awarded the contract to build a 2.2 megawatt PEM electrolysis plant (PEM = Proton Exchange Membrane) to Siemens Gas and Power, marking an important step towards hydrogen-based steelmaking. The plant is due to commence operation in the 4th quarter of 2020 and cover SZFG’s entire current demand for hydrogen. The necessary electrical power will be generated by seven wind turbines with a capacity of 30 megawatt. These will be erected by Avacon AG on the Salzgitter Group site and will likewise enter service from 2020.
- Gas turbine rotor exchange allows for increased output and efficiency
- Control system upgraded to latest version of SPPA-T3000
The Dunamenti Power Plant in Százhalombatta, Hungary, is the largest gas-fired power plant in the country with a capacity of 794 megawatts (MW), making it a major source of reliable electricity in Hungary. Recently, in collaboration with the customer and plant owner, MET Asset Management AG, and within the scope of an overhaul project, Siemens Gas and Power replaced the entire rotor of the plant's SGT5-2000E gas turbine and installed a new, state-of-the-art SPPA-T3000 control system.
- Two new indoor GIS systems increase power and ensure reliable supply
- Clean Air products ensure
much more climate-friendly operation
- Turnkey solution provides
key support for transition to a new energy mix
German transmission grid operator TransnetBW
has commissioned Siemens to build new switchgear in the 380 kilovolt (kV)
Daxlanden substation in Karlsruhe, Baden-Württemberg. Two new gas-insulated
indoor switchgear, initially with 26 panels, will boost the substation's
transmission capacity and cover the increased transport demand in the German
high-voltage grid as a result of the transition to a new energy mix. In the
future, it will thus be possible to transport large quantities of wind energy
from northern Germany to the southern part of the country. Replacing sulfur
hexafluoride (SF6) with treated air, so-called Clean Air, as the insulating
medium in the bus ducts simultaneously ensures much more climate-friendly
operation. The commissioning of the turnkey solution will take place in stages
and be completed in 2029. The order is priced in the low triple-digit millions
- Electrical capacity increased to approximately 1,200 megawatts
- Fired with regasified liquefied natural gas instead of oil
- Fifty percent lower CO2 emissions per kilowatt hour produced
Siemens will provide the equipment to upgrade the Hiep Phuoc 1 steam power plant in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, to a combined cycle power plant. This project will increase the plant’s electrical capacity by roughly 780 megawatts (MW) to approximately 1,200 MW. The modernized plant will be fired with regasified liquefied natural gas (LNG) instead of the oil that has been used to date. By changing the fuel, deploying modern F-class gas turbines from Siemens, and using the waste heat from the gas turbines to produce electricity, the CO2 emissions can be cut almost in half for each kilowatt hour produced on-site. With this project, the customer Hiep Phuoc Power Co. Ltd., will ensure a reliable, secure, and environmentally friendly power supply for Ho Chi Minh City and Vietnam.
- First order from Asia for HL-class gas turbine
- New power plant with a capacity of more than one gigawatt
- Efficiency rating of more than 63 percent
Siemens will set up a high-efficiency HL-class power island for a new combined cycle power plant (CCPP) in South Korea. This will be the first two state-of-the-art HL-class gas turbines that Siemens will supply to a customer in Asia. The new plant, which will be built in Yeoju, in South Korea’s Gyeonggi Province, will run on regasified liquefied natural gas (LNG) and offer a generating capacity of more than one gigawatt. With a maximum efficiency rating of more than 63 percent the gas turbine will allow the power station to get the most out of the valuable LNG for electricity generation, enabling especially economical and environmentally friendly operation. The customer is South Korean EPC SK Engineering & Construction Co., Ltd., which is constructing the entire plant for the independent power producer Yeoju Energy Services.
A key milestone on the way to independence: Siemens Energy presented its new management team to its employees today. In addition to an Executive Board, the company will have an expanded international management team, the Group Management Committee. Once Siemens Energy becomes a legally separate entity, this team will be instrumental in implementing the company’s strategic approach. “Announcing the management team is a further critical step on the way to becoming an independent company and an energy pure play. It will enable Siemens Energy to further develop its management system and then focus fully on the requirements of its customers and markets,” said Joe Kaeser, President and CEO of Siemens AG.
