Siemens' first SGT-400 industrial gas turbines reach 100,000 operating hours
The BIEP power plant has two gas SGT-400 gas turbines, each with a capacity of 12.9 MW. When combined with a steam turbine, the plant achieves an electrical capacity of 33 megawatts (MW); its thermal output is 55 MW. The simultaneous generation of electricity and process steam was one of the customer's key requirements when the plant was built 13 years ago.
"The Siemens SGT-400 turbine is an extremely well-proven industrial gas turbine. To date, more than 250 units of this type have been sold, and the fleet has accumulated more than 2,000,000 fired operating hours," said Hans Holmstroem, CEO of the Industrial Power Business Unit at Siemens Energy. "Reaching 100,000 operating hours in Brisbane is impressive proof of the toughness and long service life of this turbine type."
