Siemens equips Siberian project

SGT-800 gas turbines

Siemens (NYSE:à‚ SI) has won an order to deliver eight SGT-800 industrial gas turbines to supply heat and power for the $20 billion Yamal LNG production plant in the North of Western Siberia, Russia.

Located onshore, the Yamal cogeneration plant will power the giant Yamal LNG project, which develops and liquefies the abundant wet gas ressouces of the Yamal-Nenets regional.

The order was placed by Technopromexport (TPE), a Russian engineering company wholly-owned by Rostec State Corporation. TPE had previously won an EPC contract in a competitive tender process to build the Yamal LNG power plant with an electric capacity of 376 MW, reports Gas to Power Journal.

Siemens’ scope of supply includes the design, manufacture, factory testing, delivery, installation and commissioning of eight SGT-800 industrial gas turbines, four of which equipped with waste head recovery units, and nine additional step-up transformers.
