Siemens to supply Diamintina CCPP in Australia

Siemens Energy has received an order from Australia for the supply of two steam turbines and four gas turbines for the Diamantina combined cycle power plant (CCPP).

Following commissioning of the combined cycle plant scheduled for early 2014, the installed capacity of 242 MW will be sufficient to supply ecofriendly electricity to local mines operated by Xstrata and to people living in the region.

The order volume for Siemens is over EUR150m ($196m).

Siemens will be responsible for the overall plant design and will also provide technical advisory services during the construction and commissioning phases of the project.

“Diamantina power station is a great example of our ecofriendly power supply solutions for different industries worldwide,” said Markus Tacke, CEO of the Industrial Power Business Unit of Siemens Energy.
