Gas-fired power plant orders awarded to Siemens

Siemens (NYSE: SI) has received an order from Hydrochem (S) Pte Ltd., a subsidiary of Hyflux Ltd., to supply the power block and other main components for the new 411 MW Tuaspring combined-cycle power plant (CCPP) in Singapore.

Siemens’ scope of supply will include a model SGT5-4000F gas turbine, the heat recovery steam generator, one SST5-3000 steam turbine, an SGen5-2000H-series hydrogen-cooled generator and the SPPA-T3000 instrumentation and control system as well as the associated auxiliary and ancillary systems. Siemens has also concluded a long-term service agreement covering the major components, and will also supply the plant’s electrical switchgear and transformers.

The natural gas-fired Tuaspring CCPP in northwestern Singapore will be built in a single-shaft configuration and integrated into a seawater desalination plant for providing drinking water to Singapore. The CCPP plant will provide the desalination plant with power and will draw cooling water from the seawater supply to the desalination plant.

Tuaspring is scheduled to go online in 2014.
