Siemens will handle the turnkey construction
of both plants and will supply one SGT-800 industrial gas turbine, one SST-300
industrial steam turbine as well as the SPPA-T3000 control system for each
project. The industrial plants will each have an electrical capacity of 70
megawatts and feature steam extraction. Electricity will be fed into the
Israeli power grid. The turbines will be manufactured in Finspong, Sweden and
Brno, Czech Republic.
"The Israeli power plant market offers
enormous potential, and Siemens has a strong presence in the country,"
says Shmuel Fledel, CEO of Siemens Israel and country division lead of the
Power and Gas Division. "We are now supplying our first entirely combined
cycle plants to an Israeli independent power producer. This is a good
opportunity to establish ourselves in the country as a supplier of turnkey
power plant solutions and services. The order will also make an important
contribution toward Siemens' targeted growth for industrial power plants."
Approximately 40 percent of Israel's power generation capacity is already based
on Siemens technology.
