Combined Cycle power plant

Siemens Energy has delivered the Dangjin 3 power plant together with its partner GS Engineering & Construction (GS E&C) to South Korean power utility GS EPS.

The Dangjin 3 combined cycle power (CCP) plant, which is located in Dangjin-City, Chungchong Nam-do Province, was delivered 12 days ahead of schedule.

The power plant has a capacity to generate 415MW and has a gross efficiency of approximately 61%.

Siemens supplied a SGT6-8000H gas turbine, a SST6-5000 steam turbine and an SGen6-2000H hydrogen-cooled generator for the plant.

In addition to this, Siemens also supplied a Benson heat recovery steam generator, as well as parts of the electrical equipment and the SPPA-T3000 instrumentation and controls system. The company was also responsible for commissioning the power plant.

"The power plant has a capacity to generate 415MW and has a gross efficiency of approximately 61%."

Siemens Energy fossil power generation division CEO Roland Fischer said, "We are proud to have built the most modern and most efficient combined cycle plant in Asia. Thanks to our advanced H-class technology, our customer saves on both fuel costs and the cost of maintenance and repairs.

"So far, eight of the 24 H-class gas turbines we have sold to date have been sold to South Korea. This demonstrates the enormous confidence that the South Korean market places in our technology and our expertise for turnkey power plants."

GS EPS CEO WK Lee said, "At the moment, Korea’s biggest challenge is to even out the imbalance between power consumption and demand. Our Dangjin 3 power plant uses Siemens technology for maximum flexibility. It is the best available on the market."
