• Turbine Island for Jaworzno III coal-fired power plant
• Powerful turbogenerator and high-voltage components
• Installed electrical capacity of 910 MW
• Efficiency level of around 46 percent, thanks to ultra-critical steam quality

Siemens has received an order for supply of a turbine island for the Jaworzno III steam power plant in Poland. With the powerful SST5-6000 steam turbine the plant will have an installed electrical capacity of 910 megawatts (MW). The maximum net capacity is specified as 843.5 MW, with a net efficiency of approximately 45.9 percent. This will make the Jaworzno lll plant, with its ultra-supercritical steam parameters, one of the most efficient steam power plants in Europe. Commissioning is scheduled for April 2019. The new plant will replace older units currently installed by Tauron. This will result in reduction of CO2 emissions by around 25 percent. The customer is SPV-Rafako, a 100 percent affiliate of Rafako, who will erect the plant for Tauron Polska Energia in a consortium with Mostostal Warszawa. The order volume for Siemens is approximately EUR208 million.

Siemens' scope of supply includes the engineering and the delivery of the turbine island, consisting of a model SST5-6000 steam turbine, a model SGen-3000W generator, a SCon-7000 condenser, the condensate and feedwater system and the high-voltage components. The order also includes technical consulting for the installation and commissioning of the supplied components and systems.

"We are pleased that Rafako puts its trust in our world-class products and in our solutions competence. This order for the supply of the turbine island for the Jaworzno lll power plant marks a significant milestone for Siemens in Poland", declared Rainer Hauenschild, CEO of Energy Solutions within the Siemens Energy Sector.

"For us, cooperation with Siemens for Jaworzno 910MW project is one of the most important factors for a successful execution of the project. We are looking forward to our smooth and efficient collaboration", stated Krzysztof Burek, member of the management board of Rafako.
