Siemens announced the commissioning of Tate & Lyle’s cogeneration plant at its facility in Loudon, Tennessee.
Siemens delivered two SGT-700 gas turbines and two SGen-100A generators for the natural gas-fired combined heat and power system, with a long-term maintenance plan. Tate & Lyle’s Loudon plant manufactures a range of corn-based specialty and bulk food and industrial ingredients.
The company upgraded their previous power generation equipment to Siemens’ high-efficiency turbines.
“Siemens is proud to be the technology partner for Tate & Lyle, providing a highly efficient combined heat and power solution for the company’s Loudon manufacturing facility,” said John Gibson, Head of Sales North America, Siemens Power & Gas. “The trend toward distributed energy systems gives our customers an opportunity to implement innovative solutions to address their power generation needs. By generating electricity on-site and recovering heat that would typically be wasted, Tate & Lyle not only increases energy efficiency, but also substantially reduces energy costs and carbon emissions.”
