Siemens H-class contract

Published on: 

Siemens Energy has entered into agreements separately with Guangdong Energy Group and Shenzhen Energy Group to deliver four H-class combined cycle power units to plants located in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area (GBA) in southern China. Upon completion, the new and updated power plants will help meet the growing power demand in the region. In addition, with the one-hundredth unit sold, the projects also mark a milestone in the success story of the SGT-8000H gas turbine.

Under the agreement with Guangdong Energy, Siemens Energy will deliver a 675-MW combined cycle power generation unit, including a SGT5-8000H gas turbine, a steam turbine, two generators and related auxiliary equipment, and long-term maintenance service for the plant in Guangzhou. The existing coal-fired power plant will be transformed into a modern gas-fired plant. This will reduce carbon dioxide emission by more than 60 percent. The plant will generate 2.3 billion kilowatt-hours of power annually and is expected to go into commercial operation in mid-2023.
