End of 2019 Siemens has received orders from Belarus for a total of 11 SGT-800 gas turbines for three peak load and backup power plants. Like the plants in Lukomlskaya, Novopolotskaya, and Minsk, the new facility in Beloozersk is designed for 700 operating hours and 350 cold starts per year and thus makes another contribution to supporting the stabilization of the energy grid.
“Our most important requirement for the new power plant project was to select and purchase a highly maneuverable reliable peak and backup power plant to provide reliability of electricity supply to consumers,” said Sergey N. Shebeko, General Director of Brestenergo. “In the competitions for the right to supply equipment for this project Siemens technology, with the SGT-800 gas turbines, has won.”
“This third order in a period of three months underscores the enormous trust that Belarus places in our technology and our capabilities,” said Olaf Kreyenberg, head of Power Generation Europe and CIS at Siemens Gas and Power. “Our flexible and reliable gas turbines are helping bring about the transition to a new and sustainable energy mix around the world.”
