Siemens receives further order for high-efficiency power plant in the United States
Siemens will deliver the power island equipment, including two gas turbines, one steam turbine, three generators and the instrumentation and control system. A long-term service agreement has also been signed for the main generation components. Bechtel will be responsible for the engineering and procurement for the balance of the plant, and the installation, construction and commissioning of the facility. The gas turbines, steam turbine and generators will be manufactured in the Siemens factory in Charlotte, North Carolina.
The new Sherman generating station will be among the cleanest fossil-fueled plants in the United States. The Siemens Flex-PlantTM 30 technology offers high efficiency and operational flexibility with low emissions. Power generation can commence within ten minutes of startup, and full baseload power production in less than one hour, allowing rapid response to changing market conditions and enabling the smooth integration of renewable energy sources in the power grid.
Highly efficient and flexible combined-cycle power plants (CCPP) are part of Siemens' Environmental Portfolio. In fiscal year 2011, revenue from the Portfolio totaled about €30 billion, making Siemens one of the world's largest suppliers of eco-friendly technologies. In the same period, our products and solutions enabled customers to reduce their carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions by nearly 320 million tons, an amount equal to the total annual CO2 emissions of Berlin, Delhi, Hong Kong, Istanbul, London, New York, Singapore and Tokyo.
