Panda Power Commissions Patriot Power Project


By Editors of Power Engineering

Panda Power has officially commissioned its new Panda Patriot Power Project in the Clinton Township of Pennsylvania.

The 829-MW natural gas plant, the second of two generating stations to be commissioned in Pensylvania this fall by Panda Power, uses Siemens SGT6-8000H turbines in a single-shaft configuration.

The plant blocks also include two SST6-5000 steam turbines, two hydrogen-cooled SGen6-2000H generators and two heat recovery steam generators, along with the control system SPPA-T3000.

Panda marked the commissioning of the Liberty gas-fired combined-cycle plant, which also has a total capacity of 829 MW, last month.

Both Patriot and Liberty were built to take advantage of natural gas reserves discovered in the Marcellus Shale.

“Harnessing Marcellus Shale natural gas, the state-of-the-art Patriot generating facility will utilize the latest, most advanced emissions-control technology, making it one of the cleanest natural gas-fueled power plants in the nation,” said Todd Carter, Chief Executive Officer of Panda Power Funds.

Additionally, both plants are cooled with air rather than water.

Siemens and Panda Power Funds have now partnered on seven U.S. projects with a combined capacity of 5,800 MW.
