Siemens receives $400mn order for natural gas-fired power units

Siemens (NYSE: SI) received a $400 million order for two combined-cycle natural gas-fired units to be installed at an 829 MW power plant project in Pennsylvania.

Siemens will supply two H-class turbines for the Patriot project, owned by Panda Power Funds. The plant will use two SGT6-8000H gas turbines, two SST6-5000 steam turbines, two hydrogen-cooled SGen6-2000H generators, and two heat recovery steam generators, along with the complete electrical system and SPPA-T3000 instrumentation and control system. Siemens will provide maintenance and service for the main components associated with the gas turbine under a long-term service program.

The turbines and generators will be manufactured at Siemens’ manufacturing plant in Charlotte. Siemens received a similar order for Panda Power Funds’ Liberty power plant in August.
