Small Size Radial Fit Bolts for Coupling in a Combined Cycle Power Plant

Siemens Power Generation were awarded the contract to supply a SST 3000 Steam turbine, a SGT5 4000F Gas Turbine and a SGen5 2200H Generator for the newly built 450 MW Be’er Tuvia power plant, which is planned to supply 3.5% of Israel’s electricity needs up to 2040 via the most efficient plant in the country. The approximate cost of building the plant is $2bn, expected to be operating by the end of 2020.

In parallel Pilgrim were already in discussions with Siemens to design and provide a standard coupling bolt solution based upon Pilgrim’s Radial Fit Bolt technology. The Be’er Tuvia coupling bolts were the same size as the standardisation project, however the project had not yet been concluded, however it was a great opportunity to test some of the design concepts in a live project.
