German company Siemens has secured an order from Hong Kong’s coal-fired power station Castle Peak Power Company (CAPCO) to supply a power block for a new combined-cycle facility in Black Point Power Station.

This deal is the first order Siemens has recieved for power plant components in Hong Kong for two decades. Located in Tuen Mun in the northwest, Black Point Power Station is expected to become operational before 2020.

Once in operation, the plant will have a total installed capacity of 550MW, which is enough to deliver electricity to nearly one million homes in Hong Kong.

Siemens Greater China chief executive officer Lothar Herrmann said: “We are pleased that this strategic success enables us to achieve a breakthrough in Hong Kong's challenging energy market.

"We will work closely with the customer in all project phases including commissioning to support our customer's ambitious objectives."

“With our high-efficiency power plant technology and our broad experience in constructing large-scale plants, we will make contribution to a sustainable energy future in Hong Kong joining hands with our customer.

“As one of CAPCO's reliable partners, we will work closely with the customer in all project phases including commissioning to support our customer's ambitious objectives.”
