Siemens receives larger gas power order from Argentina

Siemens has received orders from Argentina for a total of seven SGT-800 industrial gas turbines and two Industrial Trent 60 natural gas turbines.

The order is essential to the government’s plans to bridge energy shortfall.

The SGT-800 turbines were ordered by the independent Argentine energy producer Albanesi S.A., and the aeroderivative Industrial Trent 60 machines were ordered by the international energy group SoEnergy.

Siemens will supply two SGT-800 to each of the power plants in Rio Cuarto and San Miguel de Tucuman in Argentina. Three of the turbines will be installed in the Argentine city of Ezeiza. The two aeroderivative turbines will generate electricity in the gas-fired power plants in El Salto and Rio Tercero.

José Aparicio, Vice President for the sales region Latin America at Siemens Power and Gas said, "Not only do we gain access to the Argentine market with our Industrial Trent 60 machine, but the order will also open up additional sales opportunities in an important growth market.”

Power consumption in Argentina is growing at a rate of around six percent annually. To meet this growing demand, the country must invest extensively in new power plants. Along with wind and solar power plants, Argentina is focusing primarily on gas-fired plants, which permit a high degree of operating flexibility and produce comparatively few CO2 emissions.

The SGT-800 today is available with different ratings up to an electrical capacity of 54 MW and an electrical efficiency of 39.1 per cent.
