11 April 2005 – Siemens has announced gas turbine contract wins in Italy and Saudi Arabia worth a combined total of $120m.
Dalmine Tenaris, part of the international Tenaris group, has contracted Siemens to deliver a power island for a combined cycle power plant in Bergamo, Italy. The order included two natural gas fired 45 MW SGT-800 gas turbines, which will run in combined cycle with a 41 MW SST-700 steam turbine to produce electricity and district heating. Each gas turbine will be coupled to its own heat recovery steam generator, manufactured by Siemens’ consortium partner, Macchi Steam, Milan.
In addition to the district heating and electricity output of 120 MW, the plant will provide 15 tonnes per hour of process steam for the Dalmine steel works and pipe factory. Commercial operation was scheduled for February 2007.
Under the terms of the second contract Siemens announced, the company will provide four 25 MW SGT-600 gas turbines for Yamaha Saudi Cement in Saudi Arabia. The new plant, which will replace an old diesel-driven one, will increase the number of machines Siemens has supplied Yamaha with to a total of nine.
