Two SGT-800s bound for cogeneration project

Siemens Canada said it has received an order from Inter Pipeline Ltd to supply two industrial gas turbine generators for a Central Utilities Block (CUB), which is part of its Heartland Petrochemical Complex currently under construction in Alberta's Industrial Heartland near Fort Saskatchewan.

The gas turbine generator (GTG) sets will be a critical part of the CUB, supplying power and steam to the propane dehydrogenation and polypropylene facilities within the Heartland Complex, said Siemens.

The facility will produce polypropylene, a petrochemical used to produce plastics in consumer products. Commercial operation of the CUB is expected in late 2021.

The agreement for the GTGs includes two SGT-800 (54MW ISO) gas turbine packages and associated auxiliaries. The SGT-800 combines a robust, reliable design with high efficiency and low emissions, making it an ideal choice for municipalities, industrial power generation and the oil and gas industry.
