Siemens Energy will provide coal gasification and power block technology for the Texas Clean Energy Project (TCEP) under a front-end engineering design (FEED) contract awarded by Summit Texas Clean Energy.

Siemens will provide gasification island technology including two SFG-500 gasifiers for the 400MW project near Odessa, Texas.

The power block, based on an SGT6-5000F gas turbine modified to operate on high H2 syngas, will allow the plant to have the very high carbon capture rate of about three million tons a year.

The power block will also include a Siemens SST-900RH steam turbine, air-cooled generators and SPPA-T3000 controls.

The IGCC plant will have a carbon capture capacity of 90%, one of the highest carbon capture rates in the world.

Siemens will be working with Fluor Corporation and Linde during the project’s FEED stage.
