A consortium led by Siemens Power Generation (PG) announced it has secured an order from Singapore to construct a cogeneration combined cycle power plant.

Siemens, together with its consortium partner Samsung Corp., will build the twin-unit power plant with an output of approximately 800mW in Singapore. The high-efficiency cogeneration combined cycle plant with an energy utilization factor of over 80 percent will supply both heat and power. The plant will feed power into the public grid and simultaneously supply process steam to an adjacent refinery operated by Petrochemical Corporation of Singapore Private Ltd.

As part of the same order, two existing combined cycle plants are to be converted to cogeneration. The total value of the order including a service agreement for ten years is approximately $705 million. The new plant is scheduled to come on line in early 2010.

"The high-efficiency cogeneration plant will make a significant contribution toward meeting Singapore's rising power demand in an economical and environment-friendly manner," said Klaus Voges, president of Siemens PG.

Back in 2002, Siemens PG and with Samsung built two combined cycle plants each rated at 370mW for PowerSeraya Ltd at the same site. These two existing units will now also be converted to cogeneration.
