District heat for Amsterdam as combined cycle plants commence

Two Siemens (NYSE: SI)-built combined cycle power plants were inaugurated in Amsterdam, Netherlands this week and as well as providing 440 MW each in power capacity, the plants will provide district heat for the city.

The Hemweg 9 and Diemen 34 combined cycle power plants are equipped with an F-Class gas turbine and has an efficiency of almost 60 per cent. The Diemen 34 power plant also produces about 260 MWth (thermal megawatts) of district heat for Amsterdam. This increases the maximum efficiency to 85 per cent.
