Siemens to supply power plant components to Turkey
Siemens Energy has secured an order to supply key components for the Denizli combined cycle power plant in Turkey. The Greek company METKA is building the plant for the project company RWE & Turcas Güney Elektrik Üretim A.S., in which RWE holds a 70-percent stake and Turkas 30 percent. Start of commercial operation slated for 2012. The order volume is approximately EUR110 million.
The new combined cycle power plant with its installed capacity of approximately 775 megawatts will be located on the outskirts of Denizli in west Anatolia, a region with strong economic growth. “It is anticipated that power demand in Turkey will more than double by 2020,” said Michael Suess, CEO of the Fossil Power Generation Division of Siemens Energy. “With this order we can further expand our position in this attractive power plant market, and at the same time make an important contribution toward ecofriendly power supply in the region,” added Suess.
The Siemens scope of supply encompasses two SGT5-4000F gas turbines, one SST5-5000 steam turbine, three SGen5-1000A air-cooled generators, the associated electrical equipment and SPPA-T3000 instrumentation & controls.
High-efficiency gas and steam turbines are part of Siemens’ Environmental Portfolio. In fiscal 2009, revenue from the Portfolio totaled about EUR23 billion, making Siemens the world’s largest supplier of ecofriendly technologies. In the same period, the company’s products and solutions enabled customers to reduce their CO2 emissions by 210 million tons. This amount equals the combined annual CO2 emissions of New York, Tokyo, London and Berlin.
