Siemens Energy has secured an order from Abu Dhabi for construction of the Shuweihat II combined cycle power plant with integrated seawater desalination facility. The company will build the plant as a turnkey project together with the partners Doosan Heavy Industries and Samsung Engineering & Construction approximately 200 kilometers west of Abu Dhabi. After the scheduled start of operation in September 2011, the plant will generate 1500 megawatts of electricity net and feed approximately 455,000 cubic meters of water daily into the local drinking water network. Project developer is GDF Suez. End customer is the local energy provider Abu Dhabi Electricity & Water Authority (ADWEA). The value of the order for Siemens is more than EUR350 million.
Siemens scope of supply is mainly the power plant’s main components comprising four SGT5-4000F gas turbines, two SST5-6000 steam turbines, six generators, the electrical systems and I&C package SPPA-T3000 for total plant control. Doosan Heavy Industries will build the seawater desalination plant based on MSF technology. Samsung Engineering & Construction will be responsible for civil works.
Siemens Energy is market leader in the Gulf Region in the construction of power plants with seawater desalination facilities. After Al Taweelah A 2, which was completed in 2001, Siemens commissioned the Al Teweelah New B Extension back in the fall of 2008. Siemens had also been contracted with the erection of  Shuweihat I and Mirfa in Abu Dhabi.


The customer for the project is Kortes Master Ltd. StroyTechMontazh delivered under the turnkey mini CHP plant generating heat and electricity for Auchan trading centre in Moscow. The power equipment is installed on the roof of the complex. On the territory of Russia such a technological solution is applied for the first time.
Modular power plant is designed on the base of two PG750B gas engine power units rated at 600 kW each by FG Wilson (Engineering) Ltd. The power plant is run on base load in parallel with the local power grid, the fuel is natural gas.



Siemens Energy has secured an order for turnkey construction of a combined cycle power plant in Tessenderlo, Belgium. Purchaser is the independent power producer T-Power N.V., in which International Power plc, Siemens Project Ventures GmbH and Tessenderlo N.V. each hold a 33 percent stake. The order volume including a long term maintenance contract for the gas turbine is approximately EUR320 million.
The Tessenderlo 420-megawatt (MW) plant will be built in Flanders on the premises of Tessenderlo Chemie N.V. From mid-2011 the power plant will supply one-third of the power generated for the energy-intensive production processes at the neighboring chemicals plant, with the other two-thirds fed into the grid. Siemens Energy will build the power plant as a turnkey project and supply the main components comprising one gas turbine, one steam turbine and one generator, the entire mechanical equipment, and the electrical and I&C systems. The plant in Tessenderlo has a very flexible design and can thus be quickly modified to meet changed market conditions. The new plant is slated to meet intermediate and peak load demand.
Tessenderlo Chemie is also taking the opportunity to overhaul its entire high-voltage network. The order for this has gone to Siemens Energy Belgium, as head of a consortium with Pauwels International and Fabricom GTI. Siemens will take care of a new gas-insulated 150-kV distribution station to which the new plant will also be connected, a new 26-kV distribution station and the upgrade of a second station, as well as the associated protection panels and supervision systems. The consortium will also be responsible for the study, installation, commissioning and building engineering.
Combined cycle power plants are an important feature of Siemens environmental portfolio. In 2008, revenue from the products and solutions of Siemens environmental portfolio was nearly EUR 19 billion, which is equivalent to around a quarter of Siemens total revenue.


Rolls-Royce will deliver a further eight RB211 industrial gas turbines for Nigeria’s offshore oil and gas fields this year as part of contracts worth $150 million from TOTAL.
These units, for a Floating Production, Storage and Offloading (FPSO) vessel in the Usan field and a fixed offshore platform in the Ofon field, bring the total number of RB211s ordered by TOTAL for offshore Nigeria to 19.
Six of the RB211 gas turbine packages will be electrical generating sets, three for each field, to provide up to 160MW of electrical power for the new installations. All of the packages will also feature exhaust mounted waste heat recovery units.
The remaining two sets will be gas compression packages to export gas to another facility or to re-inject gas into the oil field to enhance oil recovery in the Usan field.
The new Usan oil field, 100 kilometres southeast of Bonny Island in water depths ranging from 750 to 850 metres, is scheduled to become operational in 2012, when production will be in the region of 180,000 barrels of oil per day.
Phase two of the Ofon oil field development will allow an increase in oil output from 25,000 barrels per day to around 100,000 in 2011. The gas produced from the Ofon field will be piped to the Amenam complex.
The packages for Usan and Ofon are due for delivery to the module fabrication yards by the fourth quarter of 2009.


Filter company, Jenbacher distributor in Byelorussia, commissioned gas engine power plant for Euroopt trading center under the turnkey contract.
The power plant consists of two JMS 312 GS-N.LC power units (manufactured by GE Energy Jenbacher gas engines) generating 526 kW of electric and 640 kW of thermal power. The fuel is natural gas. BROAD absorption chillers generate cold for climate control.
Trigeneration operation of the power plant provides trading centre with uninterrupted supply of electricity, heat and cold. The second stage on the base of 1063 kW JMS 320 GS power unit is scheduled for the end of the year.


The customer for the project is Tomskneft-VNK JSC. Under government regulations dated 08.01.2009 oil producing companies are to increase casing-head gas utilization. Three P800 P1 diesel generators rated at 640 kW each manufactured by FG Wilson (Engineering) Ltd. have already been turned to dual-fuel operation on diesel fuel and diesel gas. Taking into account electrical load of the power plant, about 30-50% of primary fuel is being replaced.
A.D.D. Service specialists have already carried out similar work at Zapadno-Krapivinskoye field and others. In the project they use the equipment by ComAp Systems, Czech Republic. Payback period is 10-14 months depending on the capacity of the power equipment.


The power plant supplies gold and silver mine in Chukotka Autonomous Area with heat and electric power. The project is realized by Bema Gold Corporation, Canadian gold-mining company. The power plant is designed on the base of four Wartsila 32 diesel generating sets equipped with 12V32 engines with the capacity of 5.3 MW each. The power units operate on special diesel fuel avoiding congelation at severe winter temperatures. Taking into consideration severe climate at the site the latest Wartsila developments were used in designing of the power units.
