Técnicas Reunidas and JJC are developing the project, which is planned to be commissioned in March 2017, for power utility EnerSur at Ilo, which is a seaport in the Moquegua region, the southern part of Peru.

Siemens (NYSE: SI) Power and Gas division Large Gas Turbines/Generators Business Unit CEO Thierry Toupin said: "The SGT6-5000F gas turbine offers economical power generation for peak-, intermediate-, or base-load duty.

"It is an environmentally friendly gas turbine technology with low water injection requirements, and equipped with Shaping Power, a feature that enables higher power output on higher temperature days.

Capable of being operated for the first five years with fuel oil, the SGT6-5000F dual fuel gas turbines will then be operated on natural gas.

The three simple cycle plants reach their total 600 MW capacity when fired with fuel oil.
