Siemens will supply key components for the US combined cycle power station
Keweite Power Construction will build a 670 MW natural gas-fired combined cycle power plant (CCPP) in St. Joseph, Indiana, USA, and Siemens will become a technology partner for the St. Joseph Energy Center. Siemens will provide Class F power plant technology including two gas turbines, one steam turbine and three generators. These devices provide resource-efficient power to more than 450,000 homes. In addition, Siemens has signed a 25-year long-term service and maintenance contract for major components. Siemens Financial Services (SFS) provides $50 million to support the construction of the project. The power plant trial run plan was completed in the spring of 2018.
Siemens will supply two SGT6-5000F gas turbines, one SST6-5000 steam turbine and three SGen-1000A generators to CCPP at the St. Joseph Energy Center. The key components will be installed in a 2x1 configuration, and the heat removal from the gas turbine will power the steam turbine. The long-term service contract signed includes Siemens' advanced monitoring services as well as design parts, hardware, planned outages and project management. Gas turbines and generators will be produced at the Charlotte Energy Center, which manufactures Siemens 60 Hz generators.
