Siemens will be the technology partner for the St. Joseph Energy Center – a new 670 megawatts natural-gas-fired combined cycle power plant (CCPP) to be built by Kiewit Power Constructors Co. in St. Joseph County, Indiana. Siemens will supply F-class power plant technology including two gas turbines, one steam turbine as well as three generators. The facility will be capable of supplying resource-saving power for over 450,000 households. Furthermore, a 25-year long-term service and maintenance agreement was signed for the major components. Siemens Financial Services (SFS) is supporting the project's construction by providing 50 million US-Dollar. Commissioning of the plant is scheduled for spring 2018.

Siemens will deliver two SGT6-5000F gas turbines, one SST6-5000 steam turbine as well as three SGen-1000A generators for the St. Joseph Energy Center CCPP near New Carlisle in Indiana, USA. The key components are to be installed in a 2x1-configuration with the heat exhaust of the gas turbines powering the steam turbine. The signed long-term services agreement includes Siemens' advanced remote monitoring services along with program parts, hardware, scheduled outage services and program management. The gas turbines and generators will be manufactured at Siemens' Charlotte Energy Hub, which is the main production facility for Siemens' 60 Hz power generation.
