Customer Benefits due to Extended Fleet Experience
A Siemens Gas Turbine Package is de- signed to meet customer requirements economically and flexibly. It is a cost- effective power generating system with standardized base design and base scope of supply with interconnecting piping largely pre-assembled.
Reliable project implementation with high product quality through standardization of design with pre-defined interfaces to the overall power plant and use of proven components.
High reliability through robust component and system designs and implementation of large fleet operating experience (total gas turbine fleet experience: > 1,240 units, > 220 GW,
28 Million operating hours.
High availability through service-friendly components and optional diagnostic service.
Fuel cost savings through high component efficiencies and short start-up times.
Environmental friendliness through low emissions and high efficiencies.
High operating flexibility through use of online-change to different fuels and through excellent start-up and part load operating capabilities.
Flexibility to match customer- and site-specific needs through pre-defined options that can be changed or added to the base scope.
Fast construction times through shipment of pre-assembled system to site.
Compact plant size through small-footprint arrangement of systems.
World-wide experience The SGT5-4000F has been in service since 1997. Over 190 engines of this advanced gas turbine family are in operation, and over 65 are on order. More than 4,727,000 (as of Aug 2009) cumulative operating hours and a fleet reliability exceeding 99 % have been achieved.
Siemens Simple Cycle Applications The SGT5-PAC 4000F is a self-contained electric power generating system suitable for simple cycle base load, intermediate load and peaking applications. Features proven in previous designs have been incorporated into the SSC5-4000F power plant. These include
Factory assembled fuel, auxiliary, mechanical, and electrical packages Enclosures for turbine and auxiliary packages A microprocessor-based control system A starting frequency converter system
Siemens Combined Cycle Applications Siemens has more than three decades of experience in combined cycle plant design. That is why Siemens Combined Cycle Plants (SCC) affiliates the economi- cal benefits of a pre-engineered power plant design with outstanding flexibility through a wide range of options. Single as well as multi-shaft configurations are available.
The current SCC5-4000F Siemens Combined Cycle Plants incorporate the vast expertise and experience gained from many previous design accomplish- ments. The SCC5-4000F family is dimen- sioned to meet the various base and cycle load requirements of utilities, independent power producers, industrial users, and merchant plant operators. The develop- ment of these designs allows for cost- effective plants with minimum project- specific engineering.
