Centrax adds Siemens turbines to its package offerings

At last week’s POWER-GEN Europe, Centrax Gas Turbines announced it has added two gas turbines from Siemens to its range of power generation products. Until now, the company has packaged turbines from Rolls-Royce.

Under the new agreement, both the Siemens SGT-300 and SGT-400 gas turbines will be packaged at the Centrax plant in Newton Abbot, UK.

Centrax will initially market the packages for the industrial power generation and cogeneration markets in the UK, France, Italy, The Netherlands and Belgium.

The two Siemens turbines are sized between 8 MWe and 15 MWe, and will add to the Centrax gas turbine-powered generator sets which currently range from 2.5 MW to 64 MW.

Director of Gas Turbines, Guy West described the packaging tie-up with Siemens as a landmark event for the company. ‘The SGT-300 and SGT-400 are very competitive engines, with excellent emissions technology. They complement our existing product range superbly giving potential customers one of the widest choices in Europe.’

Centrax has packaged almost 300 generator sets for the European market and in addition to its UK headquarters, has customer support depots in France, Italy, the Netherlands, Germany, Spain, Portugal, Ireland and Russia employing nearly 100 personnel.
