Siemens Energy commissioned the Santo Domingo de los Olleros simple cycle power plant in Peru to Termochilca SAC after only 19 months of construction. Siemens erected the turnkey plant and will also continue to service the plant with a long-term service agreement. The 200 megawatt natural gas fueled power generation plant will start service in a simple cycle mode with an option for a combined cycle plant in the next phase.
Santo Domingo de los Olleros power plant is located in the Chilca district in Cañete province, 60 kilometers south of the capital Lima. Siemens has been responsible for full turnkey supply of the plant, which includes engineering, procurement, and construction. The main equipment has also been supplied by Siemens, including an SGT6-5000F gas turbine, a model SGEN6-1000A generator, and the entire electrical and SPPA-T3000 instrumentation & control equipment.
"Siemens has been a leading provider of efficient and environmentally fr iendly gas-fired power generation in Peru for several years", said Martin Tartibi, Head of Gas Turbine Power Plant Solutions Americas in Siemens Power Generation Division. "The Santo Domingo de los Olleros project is yet another example of our long term focus on Peru and commitment to support the growing power needs of the country."
