German power manufacturer Siemens has received an order from Black & Veatch for delivery of Power Island equipment for the 869MW Oregon Clean Energy Center (OCEC) located Ohio, US.

Under the deal, Siemens will engineer and deliver thermodynamic cycle design and Power Island configuration for the H-Class combined-cycle power plant (CCPP).

Under a long-term service and maintenance agreement, Siemens will provide cover for the initial five years of installation of its equipment at the facility.

OCEC is likely to become operational by summer 2017 and is expected to generate enough power for more than 800,000 homes in the north-west region of Ohio.

"The technology will enhance emissions control and plant operating efficiencies, key goals for our client and the community."

The Power Island configuration will consist of two SGT6-8000H gas turbines, one SST6-5000 steam turbine, three SGen6-2000H generators, two NEM-manufactured heat-recovery steam generators, as well as other electrical and mechanical equipment, which will all be supplied by Siemens.

Siemens Energy Solutions Americas senior executive vice-president Martin Tartibi said: "Siemens is very excited to be part of the advancement in the energy landscape in north-west Ohio and the state of Ohio.

"Adding this state-of-the-art combined cycle power generation facility is an important step toward utilising the resources in Ohio and providing a more sustainable energy portfolio for the state."

Black & Veatch’s energy business president and CEO Dean Oskvig said: "Siemens advanced turbine technology and services will be a centerpiece of the Oregon Clean Energy Center clean energy project.

"The technology will enhance emissions control and plant operating efficiencies, key goals for our client and the community."
