Siemens Power Generation (PG) will supply four SST-900 reheat steam turbine generators to the South Korean construction company Daelim Industrial Co. Ltd. The turbines, with a capacity of 115 megawatts (MW) each, will be installed in a greenfield power plant near the city of Dangjin. Furthermore, Siemens has received additional orders for six SST-900 steam turbines from various countries. The value of all orders combined is over EUR150 million.
The four Siemens SST-900 steam turbines ordered by Daelim Industrial will be used to generate power for a steel mill owned by the South-Korean company Hyundai Steel. The mill will provide the fuel (gases from the production process) to fire the new plant, which will be built by a joint venture between Hyundai Steel and Korean Midland Power Co. Ltd. The Siemens turbogenerators will be delivered successively throughout 2009 and commercial operation is scheduled for mid-2010. Siemens will also supply four SGen 6-100A-2P type generators with a capacity of 116 MW each, the control system, spares and services, as well as customer training. Daelim Industrial has also expressed a requirement for two further identical units within the next twelve months.
The SST-900 is the most powerful turbine in the Siemens industrial steam turbine range, and it has been sold into a number of countries throughout the world recently. One 128-MW unit has been ordered for a combined cycle power plant (CCPP) in Mexico, a further unit, generating 78.5 MW, has been ordered for a CCPP in Pakistan. A single 177-MW unit will be supplied to a CCPP in Argentina. Other major orders have been won for deliveries to Austria (165 MW), Thailand (130 MW) and USA (100 MW).
"With its optional reheat capability, the SST-900 is specially designed for power generation applications, particularly cogeneration and combined cycle", said Markus Tacke, head of the Industrial Steam Turbine business. "The SST-900 is compatible with any make of gas turbine and recent market interest confirms the commercial viability of this powerful machine."
The Power Generation Group (PG) of Siemens AG is one of the premier companies in the international power generation sector.
