Siemens supplying turbines to Belgium

The Power Generation Group of Siemens will supply two 150-MW-class V94.2 gas turbines to the Brugge-Herdersbrug combined-cycle plant in Belgium. Siemens secured the contract, valued at more than (US)$54 million, from Belgian utilities Electrabel and Societe Cooperative de Production d`Electricity. The two Siemens turbines, combined with another 160-MW steam turbine, will provide Brugge-Herdersbrug with 460 MW of power. Start-up of the gas turbines is scheduled for early 1997, with combined-cycle operation expected shortly thereafter.
