Siemens to Supply Main Components for New Combined Cycle Power Unit (CCPP) in Russia


Erlangen, Germany, April 22, 2010 - Siemens Energy has received an order for the supply of the main components for Yuzhnouralskaya GRES-2 combined cycle power unit (CCPP) in Russia. Owner of Yuzhnouralskaya GRES-2 is OJSC Third generating company of the wholesale electricity market (OJSC OGK-3). Power train purchaser is CJSC Atomstroyexport - EPC Contractor that will build the plant. Delivery of the components is scheduled for the summer of 2011. After the start of operation in end of 2012 the plant will supply ecofriendly power to the region in the southern Urals.

Yuzhnouralskaya GRES-2 is located approximately 100 kilometers south of Chelyabinsk. Siemens will supply a so called SCC5-4000F 1 S power train comprising an SGT5-4000F gas turbine with a capacity of 288 MW, a steam turbine, a hydrogen-cooled generator and the turboset I&C system. The plant has a single-shaft design, by which the main components - gas turbine, steam turbine and generator - are arranged on a single line of shafting. "This plant will be equipped with gas turbine technology with a proven track record worldwide," said Michael Suess, CEO of the Fossil Power Generation Division of Siemens Energy. "By virtue of its modular design the plant can not only be readily adapted to meet customer and site requirements but also enables high operational flexibility, fast startup and fast load changes."

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.

The Siemens Energy Sector is the world's leading supplier of a complete spectrum of products, services and solutions for the generation, transmission and distribution of power and for the extraction, conversion and transport of oil and gas. In fiscal 2009 (ended September 30), the Energy Sector had revenues of approximately EUR25.8 billion and received new orders totaling approximately EUR30 billion and posted a profit of EUR3.3 billion.
