Siemens supplies turbines, generators for Canadian power plant

Published on: 

Siemens will deliver the main components for installation at SaskPower’s  planned Chinook Power Station, a 350 MW natural gas-fired power plant being built near Swift Current, Saskatchewan, Canada.

Siemens will supply one SGT6-5000F gas turbine, a SST-900 steam turbine, a SGen6-1000A generator, and a SGen6-100A generator. The combined cycle facility will pair the Siemens gas and steam turbines to make more efficient utilization of the fuel consumed by the power plant, the company said. This will be accomplished by utilizing the exhaust heat from the gas turbine to generate steam to power the steam turbine, greatly improving overall power-plant efficiency.
