SGT-400 turbine package reaches 1 million operating hours

30 March 2010 – One of Europe’s largest wastewater treatment plants, the island-based installation at Psyttalia off the coast of Athens, Greece, is being supplied with power and heat from a gas turbine package from Siemens, the SGT-400.
 
The global fleet of 153 SGT-400 packages around the world has also reached a milestone of 1 million operating hours, says the company.
 
Factory-packaged power-plants designed and engineered on the basis of the long-established SGT-400 industrial gas turbine are ideal for reliable operation in critical applications, says Siemens, and the package design allows for control solutions to be tailored to suit customers’ specific requirements.
 
With a terminal power rating of 12.9 MW for electricity generation, and a shaft output power of 13.4 MW for mechanical drive, the two-shaft SGT-400 is the highest efficiency gas turbine core in its class with 36.2% efficiency at shaft output, adds Siemens.
