Siemens and Korea Southern Power (KOSPO) have completed the construction of the Andong combined cycle power plant (CCPP) in the province of Gyeongsangbuk-do, South Korea.

Construction work on the 417MW plant has been completed within a period of 24 months.

Equipped with H-class technology, the new plant is claimed to be the second power plant in Asia with efficiency of more than 60%.

The plant has been designed for 250 starts per year with a startup time of 30 minutes from standstill to full load.

Siemens, together with its partner GS E&C, was responsible for the turnkey construction of the plant and the supply of equipment, including an SGT6-8000H gas turbine, an SST6-5000 steam turbine, an SGen6-2000H generator and a Benson heat recovery steam generator.

Scope of the supply also included the SPPA-T3000 I&C system and other auxiliary systems for the project.

Siemens has agreed to provide maintenance services with a term of ten years for the main components.

"Scope of the supply also included the SPPA-T3000 I&C system and other auxiliary systems for the project."

Siemens Energy Power Generation Division global project management head and executive vice-president said Lothar Balling the company and its partner GS E&C completed the project in a record time to support growing electricity demand in the Andong area.

"The project execution also was a benchmark in terms of health and safety and zero harm in Korea," Balling said.

In South Korea, Siemens also owns three under-development CCPP plants totalling 2,500MW capacity, which are slated to become operational in 2014 and 2015.
