Siemens hands over Sloecentrale 870 MW combined cycle power plant in the Netherlands

15 November 2010 - Siemens Energy said it handed over the Sloecentrale combined cycle power plant located in the Dutch town of Vlissingen-Oost to the joint venture of Delta Energy, Netherlands and EDF, France. The natural-gas-fired plant has an efficiency level of 59 percent, and is designed for maximized flexibility and low nitrogen oxide emissions.

The plant, with an installed capacity of 870 MW, attains an efficiency of 59 percent. The plant is designed for 250 starts per year and is capable of supplying power to the grid within 30 to 40 minutes. It will serve as a back-up for wind farms.

Sloecentrale comprises two single-shaft plants, in which the main components are arranged on a single line of shafting. Siemens built the plant as a turnkey project and supplied the main components – two SGT5-4000F gas turbines, two SST5-5000 steam turbines, two hydrogen-cooled generators, and the entire electrical and instrumentation & control equipment. The company also signed a long-term service agreement for the main components.
