- Brownfield Engine Exchange (BEX) delivers cleaner energy, long-term reliability, improved efficiency and more powerful performance
- Making Energy Greener is one of Siemens’ continuing core focus areas as the global energy landscape evolves and changes
- Over 30 engine exchange projects worldwide to date with several recent new orders
Siemens Gas and Power is focused on helping customers navigate the world’s most pressing energy problems, both for today and tomorrow. Essential applications include providing products, solutions and services that make fossil energy greener. A recent example is a project in Alabama where Siemens is has completed its first large gas turbine section exchange in the U.S. -- delivering on that commitment. In this way Siemens is helping make energy greener and more sustainable in an evolving energy landscape.
In 2016, Bolivia chose Siemens to provide the technology and services that would add more than one gigawatt of electricity to the country's power grid. On August 8, 2019 the first of three thermal power plants to be expanded and upgraded was officially inaugurated.
Bolivia's president Evo Morales, the Bolivian energy minister Rafael Alarcon, members of the executive committee of the national company Ende Andina and John Prado, CEO Siemens Bolivia, visited the Del Sur Thermoelectric Power Plant, located in Yaguacua in southeastern Bolivia, for the opening ceremony.
The combined cycle power plant is equipped with eight Siemens SGT-800 gas turbines, four SST-400 steam turbines and eight heat recovery generators (HRSGs). The conversion to combined cycles of the Del Sur plant will increase the efficiency of the plant from 40 percent to 51 percent depending on environmental and operational conditions.

transmission and distribution networks and power generation
Siemens and the Federal Government of Nigeria signed an implementation
agreement for the Nigeria Electrification Roadmap. The goal of the Roadmap is
to resolve existing challenges in the power sector and expand the capacity for
the future power needs of the country. The document was signed by Joe Kaeser,
President and CEO of Siemens AG, Onyeche Tifase, CEO of Siemens Limited and Alex
Okoh, Director General/CEO of Bureau of Public Enterprises in Abuja in the
presence of Muhammadu Buhari, President of Nigeria.

- Power Diagnostics Services for optimized performance
- Power supply for more than three million Iraqis
Siemens has received an order to supply the key components and long-term power generation services for the 840-megawatt (MW) Maisan combined cycle power plant in Iraq. CITIC Construction Co., Ltd., the Chinese engineering procurement and construction firm building the plant, and Iraqi developer MPC, part of Raban Al-Safina for Energy Projects (RASEP) awarded the contract valued at more than EUR 280 million to Siemens. The independent power project is expected to deliver first power by March 2021 and enter full combined cycle mode by early 2022. The plant will supply sufficient electricity to meet the needs of more than three million Iraqis, while also supporting the industrial sector.
Siemens will provide MODEC with three 34-megawatt (MW) SGT-A35 gas turbine power generation packages that will power MODEC's floating production, storage, and offloading (FPSO) vessel. The vessel, referred to as the "Eni Mexico Area 1 FPSO," will be deployed in the Offshore Area 1 approximately 6 miles (10 kilometers) off the coast of Mexico at a water depth of approximately 105 feet (32 meters). The field is owned by a consortium of two companies including Eni Mexico S. de R.L. de C.V. ("Eni Mexico") as operator and Qatar Petroleum.
regulation system for the Kusenhorst substation
of the multilevel STATCOMs installed worldwide are from Siemens
In handing over the converter for a state-of-the-art grid
stabilization system for voltage regulation to the German transmission grid
operator Amprion, Siemens is celebrating delivery of its one-hundredth STATCOM
(static synchronous compensator) from the SVC PLUS series. The turnkey
installation will be deployed in the important Kusenhorst node in North Rhine
Westphalia, Germany. STATCOM systems stabilize fluctuations in the grid by
absorbing or feeding in voltage-supporting reactive power, depending on the
requirements. This approach significantly reduces the risk of voltage drops and
blackouts. Two-thirds of the globally installed STATCOM systems with modular
multilevel converter technology (MMC) are from Siemens, making the company the
world market leader in this segment.
In handing over the converter for a cutting-edge grid stabilization system to the German transmission grid operator Amprion, Siemens celebrated delivery of its one-hundredth STATCOM (static synchronous compensator) from the SVC PLUS series in mid-2019. Approximately two-thirds of the globally installed STATCOM systems with modular multilevel converter technology are from Siemens.The growing importance of STATCOM technology goes hand in hand with the new requirements to be met by the power grid. Renewable energy sources and decentralized producers are increasingly feeding electricity into the energy mix while the share of conventional power plants is shrinking. The volatile infeed of energy and ever growing distances between power producers and consumers make the grid more susceptible to fluctuations. STATCOM systems stabilize these fluctuations by absorbing or feeding in voltage-supporting reactive power, depending on the requirements. Based on the technology of conventional static var compensators, Siemens has developed additional innovative solutions, such as the SVC PLUS FS frequency stabilizer and the mobile STATCOM, which stabilize the grid and close gaps in energy systems around the world.
- New combined cycle power plant Yerevan 2
- Plant operation and maintenance for 20 years
- Siemens to hold equity in special-purpose project company
Siemens will supply a complete power island for the new Yerevan 2 combined cycle power plant at the existing plant site in the Armenian capital. The company will also operate and maintain the plant for a period of 20 years. Siemens Financial Services (SFS) – Siemens' financing arm – holds a 40 percent share in the special-purpose project company ArmPower founded specifically for this project. Yerevan 2 is the largest single order that Siemens has ever received from Armenia.
Siemens Water Solutions successfully installed and started up a Zimpro® wet air oxidation (WAO) system at a global petrochemical company’s olefins plant in the Southern U.S.
The order, received in November 2017, is the second Zimpro® wet air oxidation system supplied to the customer. The first system was supplied in 2004.The Zimpro® WAO system will treat spent caustic generated in the production of ethylene by destroying odorous and high chemical oxygen demand (COD) pollutants. The system also generates an effluent that can be safely neutralized and sent to a biological treatment plant, where it is further treated for discharge.Siemens Water Solutions addresses water and wastewater needs of the oil and gas industry with a portfolio that includes physical and chemical separation, biological treatment, and complex hydrothermal technologies.
- Fully integrated electric-drive centrifugal compression configuration will significantly reduce footprint, capital, and operating costs
- Project marks this Delaware Basin gas plant customer's first order with Siemens
Siemens was recently awarded a contract to provide three residue compression trains for two, 250 million (500 million total) standard cubic feet per day (MMSCFD) cryogenic gas plants in the Delaware Basin. The customer, a key producer in the region and long-term user of reciprocating compression equipment, recognized the benefits of centrifugal compression and looked to Siemens for a fully integrated, turnkey solution that includes compressors, motors, variable frequency drives, and associated process equipment.
