(PresseBox) ( Erlangen, )
Siemens Energy, Inc., along with its consortium partner, Kvaerner North American Construction, Inc. (a subsidiary of Kvaerner ASA), achieved substantial completion of the 695 megawatt (net) supercritical pulverized coal-fired power plant located in Maidsville, West Virginia. The plant was turned over to Longview Power, LLC, which is a subsidiary of the American company, GenPower Holdings (Delaware), L.P. The Longview Plant will make a major contribution to environmentally compatible and economical power generation in the region. It is also one of the most efficient and cleanest coal-fired plants in the U.S.

"This project demonstrates that highly efficient coal-fired power plants indeed go hand in hand with low emissions and a high degree of environmental compatibility", stated Hal S. Simonds, Director of Projects, Energy Solutions - Americas at Siemens Fossil Power Generation Division. "The performance levels guaranteed by Siemens in the contract were not only maintained but were all surpassed as well". Siemens delivered an SST6-6000 steam turbine, an SGen6-3000W generator and the SPPA-T3000 control system for the Longview plant. Siemens also supplied an innovative system for air pollution control and emissions reduction for the plant which cuts emissions of dust, sulfur-dioxide, nitrous oxides and mercury, thus making a crucial contribution to cleaner coal-based power generation. The boiler for the power plant was manufactured by Foster Wheeler North America Corporation. Kvaerner North American Construction, Inc. was responsible for the construction and erection work.
