- Five industrial gas turbines for peak load and backup power plant
- Strengthening the power grid
For the third time in three months, Siemens has received an order from Belarus to supply SGT-800 industrial gas turbines. The new order covers five gas turbines, including associated auxiliary and electrical systems, for a peak load and backup power plant. The new plant will be built at the existing power plant location of the Berezovskaya combined heat and power plant in Beloozersk, Brest Region, in the south-western part of the country. The order was placed by Brest Republican Unitary Enterprise of Electricity Industry (Brestenergo). With an electrical capacity of 254 megawatts, the new plant will help further strengthen the power grid’s reliability and stability. Commissioning is scheduled for December 2021.
Siemens was awarded a contract to supply three boil-off compressor (BOG) packages for Venture Global’s Calcasieu Pass LNG Project. The new LNG export facility, Calcasieu Pass, is currently under construction in southwestern Louisiana’s Cameron Parish, approximately 50 miles south of Lake Charles. Once fully commissioned, the facility is expected to produce 10 MTPA of clean liquefied natural gas that will be exported to global markets.
- First-of-its-kind drilling rig project will implement customized BlueDrive™ system to replace obsolete system
- New system will use existing footprint, cabling and communication points for greater safety and quick commissioning
Siemens was awarded a contract by Arabian Drilling Company to modernize a complete and integrated drilling-drives lineup, including auxiliaries and controls, that will be installed on an offshore jackup drilling rig for a customer in the Middle East. In addition to new features and benefits, the upgrade will also enable the customer to meet the latest safety standards. Delivery of the new system is planned for the early part of 2021.
- Supply of six SGT-800 industrial gas turbines
- Increases grid reliability and flexibility
- Supports the transition to a new energy mix in Belarus
Siemens has received another order from Belarus to supply equipment for a peak load power plant. The order was placed by the state-run energy provider RUE Minskenergo. The six SGT-800 industrial gas turbines, like the five machines of the same type that Siemens is supplying for the Vitebsk region, will increase the grid’s reliability and flexibility and support the transition to a new energy mix in Belarus. Commissioning is scheduled for December 2021.
With the commissioning
of BorWin3, Siemens has handed over the fifth North Sea grid connection to its
customer TenneT. After completion of successful test runs, the German/Dutch
grid operator accepted the project. Siemens was responsible for the grid
connection system including an onshore converter station. The grid connections
HelWin1 and HelWin2, BorWin2, SylWin1, and BorWin3 – for which Siemens supplied
all the technology for direct current transmission – are thus now in commercial
operation and are transmitting power. Siemens was awarded the contract for BorWin3
in the spring of 2014. Being the fifth North Sea grid connection, it provides
power to over a million German households. In July 2017 Siemens won the order
for the grid connection DolWin6, which is scheduled to go into operation in
2023. A total of almost six million households will be supplied with
electricity generated from wind power via these six links.
February 1, 2020, Michael Hagmann (53) will be responsible for setting up
Siemens Energy’s Investor Relations Department. He will report directly to
Michael Sen, designated CEO of Siemens Energy.
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.
