The new plant is in Lansing, Michigan, will see two turbines operating in combined cycle and the third in simple cycle.
Siemens said this configuration “will be capable of producing approximately 250 MW and provide reliable electricity to 250,000 homes throughout the Greater Lansing area”.
The turbine deal has been signed with Lansing Board of Water & Light and Siemens will supply its SPPA-T3000 digital control system, which helps control all functions within the plant.
The gas turbines will be manufactured in Finspang, Sweden and the plant is scheduled to be operational in 2021.
John Gibson, head of North American sales at Siemens, said the turbines “met Lansing’s exact need. Utilizing cleaner-burning and affordable natural gas, this fuel-efficient facility will deliver reliable power while also helping to reduce emissions.”
