11 December 2008 — Siemens Energy was awarded a contract to supply four simple cycle gas turbine packages for the Cleveland County generating plant in North Carolina. The purchaser of the equipment is Birmingham-based Southern Power, a subsidiary of Southern Co., which provides power to the Southeast.
The plant will generate about 720 MW at the summer peak and could come on line in early 2012.
The Siemens will supply the Cleveland County Plant with four SGT6-PAC-5000F gas turbine packages, including service contracts. Each package includes a SGT6-5000F gas turbine, air-cooled generator, auxiliaries, the SPPA-T3000 control system and an option for the exhaust stack.
