Siemens has secured an order in the U.S. for the re-powering of Cooperative Energy’s R.D. Morrow, Sr. Generating Station facility in Purvis, Mississippi. The gas turbine technology wil re-power the facility’s existing coal-powered steam turbines. This is the third order that the company has received for its new HL-class gas turbine. The natural gas-fueled combined cycle power plant will have an installed capacity of approximately 550 megawatts and will supply reliable electricity to Cooperative Energy’s Member cooperatives, which serve approximately 430,000 homes and businesses across the state.
Cooperative Energy will re-power one of its existing coal-fired generation units with a Siemens SGT6-9000HL gas turbine. The scope of supply also includes an SGen6-3000W generator and the SPPA-T3000 control system. Siemens has also been awarded a long-term service agreement, which will help support the gas turbine and generator’s optimal operating efficiency during the life cycle of the project. The contract includes service on parts, repairs, field services, program management, and offerings from Siemens’ Omnivise Digital Services portfolio, including remote monitoring and diagnostics.
Two additional power plants are currently under construction that will rely on Siemens HL-class gas turbine technology in North Carolina, and in Lincolnshire, UK. The HL-class gas turbines are based on the proven design and the vast fleet experience of the SGT-8000H series gas turbines, which achieved more than a million fired fleet hours.
