The project is realized under Moscow energy program. The power unit is based on two Siemens SGT-800 gas turbine units rated at 45 MW each, P-108 heat recovery steam generators manufactured by ZiO-Podolsk and Siemens SST-400 steam turbine rated at 40.5 MW. At the beginning of April the power unit passed successful 72-hour testing at nominal load.
Under the reconstruction of Strogino power plant they plan to install a new power block with the capacity of 261.4 MW consisting of two units. The commissioning of the second unit is scheduled for the current year. The power block will operate on base load with the efficiency 52.6%.
The new power plant will provide electric power for Krasnaya Presnya main road, adjacent house-building areas and enterprises in Moscow northwest district.

Auxiliary power source will improve electric and thermal power supply of Strogino district. The application of up-to-date gas turbine power units will minimize harmful exhaust in the atmosphere.

The general designer for the project is TEPengineering company, the power equipment supplier is Electrozavod JSC. Installation and commissioning of the power unit was carried out by Karat RSK.


Acceptance testing and presentation of a new multifunctional power complex on the base of AVE-250S wind power unit rated at 250 kW were carried out at Zapolyarnaya wind farm in Vorkuta.
The power complex consists of separate modules. Multifunctionality is provided by the possibility to produce from local resources engine fuels or producer gas for electric and thermal power generation. The problem of electromagnetic compatibility of wind generating sets with local network systems and diesel generators was also solved. The prototypes of such power complexes on the base of wind and diesel power plants are planned to be built in Tiksi town of Yakutia and Baranchinsky settlement in Sverdlovsk Region.



Siemens Energy has been awarded a contract to supply four simple cycle gas turbine packages for the Cleveland County generating plant near Grover in North Carolina. The purchaser of the equipment is Birmingham-based Southern Power, a subsidiary of Southern Company, which provides power to the Southeast. The plant will be able to generate approximately 720 megawatts at the summer peak and is scheduled to come on line in early 2012.
The Siemens scope of supply for the Cleveland County Plant encompasses four SGT6-PAC-5000F gas turbine packages, including service contracts. Each package consists of a SGT6-5000F gas turbine, air-cooled generator, auxiliaries, the innovative SPPA-T3000 control system and an option for the exhaust stack. The fast-start capability of the SGT6-5000F gas turbine will allow Southern Power to deliver power to the grid quickly, while also helping to keep per start emissions low.


It’s one of the greatest power projects realized on the territory of Belorussia. At 420 MW power plant the first stage of 100 MW was replaced by 230 MW combined cycle power unit. As a result total electric output of the power plant was increased up to 550 MW.
The customer for the project is RUP Minskenergo, the general contractor is Belenergostroy JSC. The reconstruction project was developed by RUP Belnipienergoprom.
The power unit was designed on the base of Alstom Power Systems GT13E2 gas turbine with the capacity of 170 MW. It also includes double-pressure steam boiler by SES Energ Ya.s. and T-53/67-8,0 cogeneration steam turbine by Ural Turbine Works. The power unit operates in parallel to the power grid.


The commissioning is scheduled for the end of the year. Gross station output will be increased up to 158 MW. The capacity of the first stage in operation is 78 MW.
SGT-700 gas turbine power units and SST-600 steam turbine unit manufactured by Siemens Industrial Turbomachinery have already been delivered. The installation of the power equipment will begin in the nearest future.
The general contractor for the project is GlobalElectroService JSC. The cost of the project is 4.2 billion rubles.



At present the power plant operates on the base of two power units equipped with DTc59 engines rated at 12 MW each and two UGT 16000 power units with the capacity 16.3 MW each manufactured by Zorya-Mashproekt, NPKG. The fuel is casing-head gas.
Under the third stage two UGT 16000 power units with the capacity 16.3 MW each and the efficiency 31.5 % were delivered. The power units are equipped with TS-20 generators manufactured by Privod JSC.
By 2010 three more analogous power units are scheduled for commissioning. The general designer for the project is Energotechprom Ltd. Yuzhtransenergo, AK, JSC will handle installation and commissioning. The customer is AMF-Group.


The Iraqi Ministry of Electricity and GE Energy announced today at a ceremony in Baghdad that they have signed an agreement for power generation equipment and services valued at nearly $3 billion to provide much-needed electricity to support Iraq's future economic development. The announcement is a significant milestone as the country seeks to rapidly develop its energy infrastructure and increase its electricity production.
Under the agreement, GE Energy is providing heavy-duty frame 9E multi-fuel gas turbines capable of supplying 7,000 megawatts (MW) of electricity. The Government of Iraq plans to install the units at key sites around the country to provide needed support for the electricity grid. GE's 9E gas turbine technology has proven reliability and performance in more than 400 applications worldwide.
As the world's leading supplier of gas turbines, GE Energy is well positioned to help Iraq meet its future needs for reliable and stable power generation. More than 6,000 GE gas turbines are installed worldwide and have accumulated more than 200 million hours of operating experience at unparalleled reliability levels.
Currently, Iraq's daily power generation output averages less than 6,000 MW, while the demand is typically more than 10,000 MW. The GE turbines can provide a platform for power stability thus helping address electricity shortages and position Iraq for future economic growth.
The agreement follows the Government of Iraq's previous order with GE in May 2008 for eight gas turbines capable of generating 600 MW to meet short-term power requirements in Iraq.
As part of the agreement, GE Energy will also provide technical advisory services, performance testing and spare parts to support the reliable operation of the turbines. In addition, GE will provide technical and management training in order to help Iraq strengthen its power sector workforce for the future.
