Siemens receives fresh order for SGT5-8000H gas turbine

Siemens has received an order for the turnkey construction of the Bandirma II combined-cycle (gas and steam) power plant (CCPP) in Turkey.

The natural-gas-fired CCPP Bandirma II will be built on the southern coast of the Sea of Marmara, near the city of Bandirma in the Balikesir province of Turkey.

Enerjisa, a joint venture of Sabanci Holding and E.ON, has requested the order. Following the Samsun project, which is currently under construction, Bandirma II will be the second power plant in Turkey to be powered by the SGT5-8000H gas turbine.

Upon completion in the spring of 2016, this plant will have an installed capacity of around 600 MW and an efficiency of over 60 per cent.

Siemens‘ scope also comprises the following main components: an SGT5-8000H gas turbine, a model SST5-5000 steam turbine and an SGen5-3000W water-cooled generator, along with the entire electrical system, a 400 kV high-voltage switchgear installation and the SPPA-T3000 instrumentation and control system.

The scope also includes a Benson-type heat recovery steam generator manufactured by NEM and the auxiliary and ancillary systems. A long-term service contract was also concluded for the major components, the gas turbine and generator.

The Bandirma II combined-cycle power plant is of single-shaft design. Such plants are highly flexible and can be run up to full power in only 30 minutes. With load ramping of gradients of up to 50 MW per minute, they also respond very quickly to fluctuations in power demand and so can help to stabilize the grid.
