Siemens Energy has received an order to supply the power train consisting of the key components for the combined cycle power plant Dhuvaran Phase III, in India. The purchaser is the Indian Engineering, Construction and Manufacturing multinational company Larsen & Toubro Limited, which is constructing the plant for the owner, Gujarat State Electricity Corporation Limited. Delivery of the components is scheduled for the summer of 2012. Following commissioning by the end of 2013, this plant in western India will supply ecofriendly electricity to the region around the industrial and university city of Vadadora, in Gujarat state. The order is worth approximately EUR70 million.
"This order consolidates our position on the South-East Asian gas turbine market and enables us to make an important contribution to an environmentally compatible power supply in India," says Dr. Roland Fischer, CEO of the Fossil Power Generation Division of Siemens Energy.
The gas fired power plant Dhuvaran CCPP Phase III with an installed capacity of 375 MW is designed as a single-shaft plant in which the main components - the gas turbine, steam turbine and generator - are arranged on one single shaft. Siemens is supplying a SCC5-PAC 4000F (1S) power train, comprising an SGT5-4000F gas turbine, an SST5-3000 steam turbine and an SGen5-2000H hydrogen-cooled generator, plus the SPPA-T3000 instrumentation and control system for the turboset as well as the ancillary and auxiliary systems. A service agreement for the main components has also been concluded.
High-efficiency combined cycle power plants arepart of Siemens' Environmental Portfolio. In fiscal 2010, revenue from the Portfolio totaled about EUR28 billion, making Siemens the world's largest supplier of ecofriendly technologies. In the same period, our products and solutions enabled customers to reduce their carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions by 270 million tons, an amount equal to the total annual CO2 emissions of the megacities Hong Kong, London, New York, Tokyo, Delhi and Singapore.
