Siemens commissions 200 MW gas-fired power plant in Peru


Siemens has commissioned the 200-megawatt natural gas fueled Santo Domingo de los Olleros simple cycle power plant in Peru.

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.

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.

"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."
