Siemens has been awarded a contract by SPV-Rafako to supply a turbine island for the Jaworzno III steam power plant in Poland.
Under the €208m contract, Siemens will engineer and deliver the turbine island comprising a model SST5-6000 steam turbine, a model SGen-3000W generator, a SCon-7000 condenser, the condensate and feedwater system and the high-voltage components.
Siemens will also provide technical consulting for the installation and commissioning of the supplied components and systems.
In a consortium with Mostostal Warszawa, SPV-Rafako, which is a 100% affiliate of Rafako, will install the plant for Tauron Polska Energia.
Siemens Energy Sector Energy Solutions CEO Rainer Hauenschild said, "This order for the supply of the turbine island for the Jaworzno lll power plant marks a significant milestone for Siemens in Poland."
The SST5-6000 steam turbine will allow the plant to provide an installed electrical capacity of 910MW while the maximum net capacity is specified as 843.5MW, with a net efficiency of approximately 45.9%.
Rafako member of the management board Krzysztof Burek said, "For us, cooperation with Siemens for Jaworzno 910MW project is one of the most important factors for a successful execution of the project. We are looking forward to our smooth and efficient collaboration."
With ultra-supercritical steam parameters, the Jaworzno lll coal-fired power plant is expected to be one of the most efficient steam power plants in Europe.
Slated to be commissioned in April 2019, the new plant will result in reduction of CO2 emissions by around 25% and will replace older units currently installed by Tauron.
