A Czech-based turbine manufacturer is delivering its first project in the United States by supplying a steam turbine generator for a gas-fired power plant in Lansing, Michigan.
Doosan Skoda Power signed a contract with Lansing Board of Water & Light (LBWL). Doosan’s 80-MW DST-S10 is being manufactured in Pilsen, Czech Republic, and is scheduled for commercial operation by spring 2021.
“Our success in this demanding tender confirms top quality of our products and services on a global level. Our highly efficient turbine and its operational flexibility will help significantly reduce local emissions and ensure a reliable electricity supply for residents of the city of Lansing and its surroundings,” said Vaclav Cerny, Head of Sales–America at Doosan Skoda Power.
LBWL’s 250-MW combined cycle plant is being built on the site of the coal-fired Erickson Power Plant in the Delta Township. The new facility is part of the utility’s effort to be coal-free by 2025, when LBWL plans to close the Erickson coal-fired units.
Doosan Skoda Power was founded more than 100 years ago in Pilsen. It is part of the Doosan Group.
