Siemens hands over 408 MW district heating power plant in Austria

11 June 2009 - After an approximately two-year construction period Siemens handed over the new Timelkam combined cycle power plant in Austria to Energie AG Oberösterreich and the Swiss Groupe E.

The district heating power plant with an installed capacity of 408 MW will have an annual generating capacity of 2400 GWh and supply 700 000 households with electricity. The plant's maximum district heating capacity will be 100 MW.

With its advanced turbine technology the 408 MW plant will attain an efficiency of approximately 59 per cent while at the same time producing low pollutant emissions. That will make it one of the most efficient and cleanest power plants not only in Austria but also worldwide.

The power plant is an SCC5-4000F1S single-shaft unit of the proven Siemens design, in which the main components – SGT5-4000F gas turbine, SST5-5000 steam turbine and generator – are arranged on a single line of shafting.

By virtue of their modular design these plants can not only be readily adapted to specific customer and site requirements but also enable high operational flexibility, short startup times and fast load ramps. The Timelkam power plant will thus be able to supply essential peak-load power.
