Siemens technology heating up Versailles

Centrax has completed the installation of its first Siemens CX400 package in Versailles, France.

This 12 MW unit is now meeting 40 per cent of the hot water demand of the city, including its famed palace, while also producing electricity for sale to French power utility EDF.

The combined heat and power installation at Versailles is the first Siemens gas turbine to be packaged by Centrax since the two companies forged a recent agreement that enables Centrax to market the SGT-300 and -400 gas turbines in the UK, France, Italy, the Netherlands and Belgium.

Besides its technical benefits, the CX400 also gives Centrax the commercial advantage of providing the greatest power output and energy efficiency below the 12MW cap imposed on co-generation projects in France.

The contract brings the total number of generator sets packaged by Centrax for the European market to more than 320. Siemens gas turbines complement the UK Company’s current product range by giving customers one of the widest choices of power output in Europe, with a range of between 2.5MW and 64MW.
