France: combined-cycle power plant

Siemens Power Generation (PG) is to construct a turnkey combined-cycle power plant in Saint Avold in the Lorraine region, France. The customer is Endesa France, whose principal shareholder is the Spanish power company Endesa with a holding of 65%. The contract is valued at EUR 360 million, and the plant is scheduled to go into operation in early 2010. Siemens PG is building the new natural gas-fired power plant at the existing power plant site Emile Huchet in Saint Avold in Lorraine, about 20km west of the French-German border near Saarbruecken. The high-efficiency power plant will feature high cost-efficiency, flexibility, and environmental compatibility. The plant will consist of two units, each having a capacity of 430MW, making the facility France’s largest new combined- cycle plant to date. The output is sufficient to supply as many as one million households in France with electricity. Siemens PG’s scope of supply encompasses two SGT5-4000F gas turbines, two steam turbines and two generators, as well as all mechanical equipment, electrical systems and equipment, and the SPPA-T3000 instrumentation and control system.
