Siemens gas turbine CCPP

German manufacturer Siemens has received an order from Holland Board of Public Works (HBPW) for delivering two gas turbines and one steam turbine at the combined cycle power facility, Holland Energy Park, in Holland, Michigan, the US.

The Holland Energy Park is being transformed into a fuel-efficient power producing facility by the local utility HBPW. It was previously a coal-fired plant.

Under the deal, Siemens will supply two of its SGT-800 gas turbine models for the facility along with one SST-400 steam turbine.

The firm has also signed a long-term service contract for the two gas turbines.

The facility is expected to start commercial operations by fall 2016.

"This new combined cycle plant makes a two-fold contribution to environmental protection."

Once operational, the power plant will generate approximately 125MW of power in the summer months and 145MW during winter.

Siemens power and gas distributed generation business head Wolfgang Konrad said: "This new combined cycle plant makes a two-fold contribution to environmental protection.

"On the one hand, it replaces a coal-fired plant, which halves the CO2 emissions and on the other, it helps do away with the need for salt and grit in the winter."

Fuel-efficient technology equipment from Siemens is likely to reduce CO2 emissions at the facility by approximately 50%.

As well as generating energy, the facility will be used in winters to melt the snow in the city.

Additional heat produced at the plant from the circulating water system will be used to expand the municipally-owned snowmelt system in the city.
