Siemens, along with its consortium partner Marubeni Corp., have received an order for a turnkey combined-cycle power plant in Thailand.
The Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand plans to construct a 1,200-MW plant 20 kilometers south of Bangkok with a completion date of 2019. Siemens will supply two H-class turbines, which will be the first delivery of that product in the country.
"This marks not only the fifth order from EGAT for the two consortium partners for a power plant in Thailand but is also the first time that Siemens will supply its largest and most efficient gas turbine to the country," said Willi Meixner, CEO of the Siemens Power and Gas Division. "We have been able to offer a power plant solution with optimized levelized cost of electricity for the customer's specific requirements."
The $550 million order includes two SGT5-8000H gas turbines, two SGen5-3000W generators, two SST5-5000 steam turbines. Two heat recovery steam generators and the SPPA-T3000 control system.
Marubeni will be responsible for civil and erection works, cooling towers, the high-voltage gas-insulated switchyard and additional plant equipment.
