  1. Siemens in Hong Kong gas power contract win

    Siemens is set to deliver a new power block for a gas-fired plant in Hong Kong, the company announced this week. The contract win marks the firm’s first order from Hong Kong in 20 years, it said, as well as the first delivery of an H-class gas turbine to the Greater China region, which includes mainland China, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Macau. The power block will be installed at the 550 MW combined-cycle Black Point plant (pictured) in the city of Tuen Mun (Castle Peak) in northwest Hong Kong, which came online in 1996. A new unit is being added to the plant by Castle Peak Power Company (CAPCO), a joint venture between China Southern Power Grid International and CLP Power Hong Kong. The project is planned to come online in 2020.   In total, the delivery will include an SGT5-8000H gas turbine , an SST5-5000 steam turbine, a water-cooled SGen5-3000W generator made in Germany and a SPPA-T3000 control system, Siemens said. The firm is to deliver and commission the power block with a single-shaft configuration. Lothar Herrmann, CEO of Siemens Greater China, said his company was “pleased that this strategic success enables us to achieve a breakthrough in Hong Kong’s challenging energy market”.   Hong Kong aims to increase its gas-fired power capacity to 50 per cent of the total generation mix by 2020.
