Siemens receives order for two turnkey industrial power plants in Israel
Siemens will handle the turnkey construction of both plants and will supply one SGT-800 industrial gas turbine, one SST-300 industrial steam turbine as well as the SPPA-T3000 control system for each project. The industrial plants will each have an electrical capacity of 70 megawatts and feature steam extraction. Electricity will be fed into the Israeli power grid. The turbines will be manufactured in Finspong, Sweden and Brno, Czech Republic.
"The Israeli power plant market offers enormous potential, and Siemens has a strong presence in the country," says Shmuel Fledel, CEO of Siemens Israel and country division lead of the Power and Gas Division. "We are now supplying our first entirely combined cycle plants to an Israeli independent power producer. This is a good opportunity to establish ourselves in the country as a supplier of turnkey power plant solutions and services. The order will also make an important contribution toward Siemens’ targeted growth for industrial power plants." Approximately 40 percent of Israel’s power generation capacity is already based on Siemens technology.
