Siemens builds on its successful SGT6-5000F gas turbine platform with a step change in NOx emissions while firing fuel oil by demonstrating 25 ppm NOx emissions with water injection. The current industry standard is 42 ppm for other OEM F-Class gas turbines.
Co-Re-based alloys: a new material for gas turbines
May 19 2013 -
It is estimated that future gas turbines will function at temperatures 200⁰C higher than those of today and that the materials currently in use cannot withstand such high temperatures. So there is a need to investigate new materials capable of resisting very severe temperature conditions and the heavy load on modern gas turbines.
GE’s aeroderivative gas turbines to power Nigeria’s Port Harcourt refinery
February 27 2015 -
General Electric (GE) has completed the supply and installation of three 25 MW, trailer-mounted, TM2500+ aeroderivative gas turbines to generate uninterrupted power at the Port Harcourt refinery in Nigeria. The supply was made through Genesis Electricity Limited, an independent power producer.
The installation of the mobile gas turbines is expected to help Nigeria to overcome grid outages and return to full capacity for refining. The present outages have reduced the refinery’s output to 30 percent of its total maximum capacity of 210,000 barrels per day.
Siemens to upgrade I&C system for GE steam turbines in South Korea
February 26 2015 -
Siemens has received an order for upgrading the I&C system for GE steam turbines in units 5 and 6 at the Samcheonpo Thermal Power Station, South Korea. The upgrade is aimed at enhancing the availability of the plant and the plant's reliability during operation, as well as to reduce the operating and maintenance costs for the plant.
The customer is Korea South East Power Co. Ltd (KOSEP), the operator of the power plant. Unit 5 was upgraded in November 2014 during a scheduled outage. Work on Unit 6 is scheduled to be completed in the spring of 2015.

Panda Power Funds has entered into a joint venture with Sunbury Generation LP to develop, finance, construct and operate a 1,000 MW natural gas-fueled, combined-cycle power project near Shamokin Dam in Snyder County, Pennsylvania. The plant, expected to start commercial operation in the second half of 2017, is likely to supply power markets including Philadelphia and New York City.
Siemens turbines to power combined cycle plant in Michigan
February 25 2015 -
Siemens is supplying two gas turbines and one steam turbine for the Holland Energy Park combined cycle power plant in Holland, Michigan, USA. The plant is likely to generate approximately 125 MW in summer and 145 MW in winter. Siemens is providing two SGT-800 gas turbines and one SST-400 steam turbine. Siemens will also provide a long-term service contract for the SGT-800 gas turbines.
Black & Veatch to install two 1,000MW combined cycle natural gas units in Texas
February 21 2015 -
Exelon Generation has selected Black & Veatch as owner’s engineer for the installation of two 1,000MW combined cycle natural gas units in Texas. The units are likely to meet the growing electricity demand in Texas while reducing the amount of water used to produce power in the drought-prone state.
