Siemens has secured a long-term service contract from Open Joint Stock Company Fortum for the Nyaganskaya GRES combined cycle power plant (CCPP) project in Nyagan, Russia.
Pursuant to the terms of the contract, Siemens will provide service and maintenance for the gas turbines, steam turbines and generators of all three combined cycle plants for a period of six years.
Nyaganskaya GRES consists of three combined cycle power units with a total generating capacity of 1,254MW. Fortum commenced operations of the 421MW Unit 1 in April 2013 and 424MW Unit 2 in December 2013, while Unit 3 is under construction.
Fortum claims that Nyaganskaya GRES is the world's largest thermal power plant operating above the latitude of 62 degrees north and is the largest thermal power plant greenfield construction project in northern Russia.
Siemens Energy Service Fossil Region Europe and Africa head Alain de Cat said as one of Russia's largest combined cycle power plants, Fortum's Nyaganskaya power plant plays an important role in contributing to the region's energy supply.
"With our new regional hub in St. Petersburg, Siemens will have the resources and technical abilities available nearby to help ensure the plant operates with high availability, reliability and economic efficiency," de Cat said.
Siemens supplied its SCC5-4000F power train solution consisting of a SGT5-4000F gas turbine, SST5-3000 steam turbine, SGen5-2000H generator and SPPA-T3000 automation system for each of the three units of Nyaganskaya GRES.
In 2013, Siemens has also secured a long-term service contract for the Kirishskaya GRES power plant in the Leningrad region in Russia.
