Siemens signs contract with Thailand for 18 industrial gas turbines

Global tech company Siemens has inked a deal with Thailand to provide the country with 18 industrial gas turbines.

The units -- purchased by TEC Project Services Corporation (TPS), a subsidiary of the Japanese Toyo Engineering Corporation (TEC) -- are being installed at nine combined-cycle cogeneration power plants.  Once installed, the gas turbines will offer a total capacity of 1,100 MW.

TPS is erecting nine new plants in five new industrial parks, and each plant will be equipped with two SGT-800 gas turbines.

Six of the SGT-800 turbines have the capacity of 53 MW each while the remaining 12 have a rating of 50.5 MW each.

Siemens will provide technical field assistance during installation and long-term service.

Siemens' largest market for the SGT-800 gas turbine is in Thailand where 70 units have already been sold.  As of June 2015, 270 SGT-800 gas turbines have been sold worldwide.
