5 February 2008 – Siemens has been awarded a contract by InterGen to build and service Rijnmond II, a turnkey combined cycle power plant located in the Netherlands.
Following the start of commercial operation in mid-2010, Siemens will assume responsibility for plant services over a twelve-year period. The order, including the long-term service agreement, is worth over €320m ($475m).
With an installed capacity of approximately 430 MW, the natural gas-fired Rijnmond II plant will supply power to more than a million Dutch households.
Siemens will build the power plant at the Vondelingenplaat industrial and port facility, approximately three kilometres south of Rotterdam. The scope of supply encompasses an SGT5-4000F gas turbine, a water-cooled generator, a steam turbine, and the entire electrical and I&C equipment.
Rijnmond II is the third order for a combined cycle power plant posted by Siemens since liberalisation of the Dutch power market in 2000. In 2003, the company supplied components for Rijnmond I.
