Siemens Supplies Amazonian Power Plant
Siemens has been awarded a US$220 million order for the supply of the power island for the UTE Mauá 3 combined-cycle power plant to be located in Manaus, Brazil. The plant will be built for Amazonas Distribuidora de Energia, a subsidiary of national utility Eletrobrás.
Siemens will partner with locally based Construtora Andrade Gutierrez to build the 580-megawatt natural gas-fired plant in two phases. The first phase will consist of the simple-cycle plant, which will be completed in 2014 to meet the anticipated demand during the 2014 FIFA World Cup Soccer games, the German power company said in a statement. In the second phase, Mauá 3 will be converted to a combined-cycle facility.
Under the contract, Siemens will supply two SGT6-5000F gas turbines, one SST6-5000 steam turbine, three SGen6-1000A generators, and the SPPA-T3000 instrumentation and control system. The gas turbines, steam turbines and generators will be manufactured in Siemens’ factory in Charlotte, North Carolina.
