Siemens AG will build another combined cycle power plant for Evonik Industries AG to replace a backup gas power plant at the Marl Chemical Park in Germany's north west, the company said on Wednesday.
The German engineering group said Siemens Gas and Power GmbH will supply one SGT-800 gas turbine, one SST-400 steam turbine and two generators, which will produce power and heat with 90 megawatts of electrical capacity and 220 megawatts of thermal capacity, Siemens said.
The plant will be operational in 2022, and Siemens will also supply a SPPA-T3000 control system to manage the plant.
Siemens did not disclose the value of the contract, but said the project volume is expected to be in the lower triple-digit million euro range.
The Marl Chemical Park is located in Marl, in North Rhine-Westphalia Germany.
Siemens Financial Services and the KfW IPEX-Bank--an independent bank that focuses on international project and export financing--will fully finance the new plant during the construction phase and after commissioning.
This is the second combined heat and power project Siemens have implemented at the Marl Chemical Park.
