Combined-cycle power plants to be built by Siemens in Thailand

Siemens Energy (NYSE: SI) will design, procure and construct two $1 billion, 800 MW combined-cycle power plants in Thailand.

Siemens and Japanese partner Marubeni will build the Chana Block 2 and the Wang Noi Block 4 power plants in Bangkok. Both plants will have an installed capacity of 800 MW and are scheduled to begin operations in 2014.

The Chana 2 plant is an extension of the existing Chana Block 1 plant. Siemens will supply an SGT5-4000F gas turbine, an SST5-3000 steam turbine, an SGen5-2000H generator, all of the electrical equipment, an SPPA-T3000 instrumentation and control system and the ancillary and auxiliary systems for the Chana Block 2 plant. Marubeni will supply the heat recovery steam generator, the main transformers and switchgear and will erect and install the overall plant.

The Wang Noi Block 4 plant is an extension to the existing Wang Noi Blocks 1 to 3. It will include two SGT5-4000F gas turbines, an SST5-5000 steam turbine and three SGen-1000A generators.
