The firm will supply two H-class turbines, two steam turbines and four generators for the plant in Guangzhou City in southern China.
The plant is being developed by Huadian Fuxin Energy Corporation, a subsidiary of state-owned power producer China Huadian Corporation Ltd (CHD). Scheduled to come online at the end of 2019, it will be the most efficient gas-fired plant in the country according to Siemens.
Guangzhou City’s Zengcheng District, where the plant will be located, is in the process of building an advanced manufacturing base. Siemens said it is helping the district replace small coal-fired industrial boilers with natural gas-fired systems.
The company will also digitally upgrade and network CHD’s gas turbines, steam turbines, wind turbines and solar PV units by deploying new operation centres to control multi-source networked fleets.
Willi Meixner, CEO of Siemens’ power and gas division, said the market situation for power plant equipment “is still a difficult one, characterized by tough competition, overcapacities and price pressure”.
“Against this background we are pleased to have achieved this breakthrough on the Chinese gas turbine market.”
