GE Energy has signed two new Jenbacher gas engine distributor and service agreements with highly regarded energy services companies in Russia as industry and municipalities seek more efficient, reliable, fuel-flexible onsite power solutions. These agreements also will support the country’s efforts to modernize its power generation and delivery infrastructure while reducing regional greenhouse gas emissions.
GE announced its new Jenbacher gas engine distributor and service agreements with Intma of Moscow and Vapor of St. Petersburg during Russia Power 2009, the region’s leading annual power industry conference. Intma is an engineering services/general contractor for power stations and production automation systems, while Vapor specializes in the engineering of sophisticated combined heat and power (CHP) applications.
Within the scope of the agreement, Intma’s sales and service territory covers the Ural region. Intma will focus on expanding the role of GE’s Jenbacher gas engines for industrial applications including associated petroleum gas power generation projects for oil producers, coal mine gas power plants, waste-gas systems for the metals industry and GE’s natural gas-powered cogeneration/CO2 fertilization systems for the commercial greenhouses.
According to the agreement, Vapor will support customers in Kaliningrad Oblast and the North and North/West regions, in addition to St. Petersburg. Vapor is exploring additional potential opportunities to help the food industry, greenhouse operators and other manufacturers overcome power shortages in specific regions by installing GE’s Jenbacher units to provide a highly reliable, onsite supply of heat and electricity. Vapor also is working with industrial and municipal customers to install modern district heating/CHP systems.
In late 2008, Vapor commissioned a three-Jenbacher unit GE cogeneration plant for an industrial company in St. Petersburg.
With the authorized distributors Power Solutions and Max Motors already in place, GE now has four authorized Jenbacher gas engine distributors in Russia.
In March 2009, GE Energy announced the opening of a new engineering sales, service and technology center in Moscow and plans to build a new power technology center in the Kaluga region, about 180 kilometers southwest of Moscow. GE’s Kaluga Power Technology Center will initially provide services for GE power generation equipment installed in Russia and the CIS region.
More than 230 of GE’s Jenbacher gas engines have already been delivered throughout Russia, in applications ranging from associated petroleum gas solutions to high-efficiency CHP projects.

Siemens Energy, Inc. and Calpine Corporation signed an agreement to upgrade approximately one-third of the independent power producer’s fleet of Siemens F Class gas turbines, with an option to upgrade additional units. The Siemens technology upgrades on each unit are intended to add incremental capacity while improving the efficiency of the entire engine. Calpine intends to implement these upgrades over the next several years. The contract value is more than USD110 million.
Calpine currently operates 38 Siemens F Class gas turbines in the United States, primarily in California and Texas. The thermal performance upgrade to the Siemens SGT6-5000F combustion turbine is intended to increase base load power, while significantly improving the overall base load heat rate. The scope of the technology upgrades for the turbines will vary from unit to unit, but will generally include combustion turbine components, operational enhancements and installation services.
“Increasing efficiency through the modernization of the existing power generation fleet helps our customers produce environmentally compatible electricity to meet the nation’s future energy demand,” states Randy Zwirn, CEO of Siemens Energy’s Service Division. “Siemens considers these upgrades to be an important step in helping make Calpine’s fleet a more competitive force in the changing energy landscape.”
"Calpine applauds Siemens' design of this highly efficient retrofit that allows us to upgrade our turbine-generators. We look forward to providing this clean, reliable and efficient additional capacity to our customers throughout the United States," said Tom Webb, Calpine

Alstom has been awarded a contract by RWE npower plc for the design and construction of a 2000 MW gas-fired combined-cycle power plant in Pembrokeshire, Wales in the United Kingdom.
The plant will be built on the site of the previous oil-fired power station and will include five Alstom GT26 turbines and accompanying core components. With an output of approximately 2000 MW, it will be the largest and one of the most efficient of its kind in the UK, capable of supplying power to around three million homes.
This project is the second one that Alstom has signed with RWE npower in the UK. Alstom is also building the Centrica's Langage and E.On's Grain power plants. Including this latest contract, these four power plants will add close to 6 GW of new electrical power to the UK grid.
Approximately 40% of the UK energy fleet was built before 1975 and will need replacement in the short to medium term.
