This Is The Second Project In Pennsylvania Awarded By Panda Power Funds To Siemens. Image Is Courtesy Of Power Panda Funds

Siemens Energy announced today that it has received an order from Panda Power Funds to supply two power plant units fitted with H-class gas turbines for the “Patriot” combined-cycle power plant (CCPP) in Clinton Township, Pennsylvania. This is the second project in Pennsylvania awarded by Panda Power Funds to Siemens. The first order was for the “Liberty” power plant which was announced in August 2013.

“When they are completed, the Patriot and Liberty power plants will be two of the most technologically advanced, most modern power plants on the East Coast,” said Martin Tartibi, Head of the Business Unit Gas Turbine Power Plant Solutions Americas at Siemens Energy’s Power Generation Division. “Our H-class gas turbines mean that Pennsylvanians will have a cost-efficient, environmentally friendly electric power supply for many years to come.”

The H-class technology in a single-shaft configuration, used in the Patriot and Liberty power stations, means that both the gas turbine and steam turbine are arranged on one shaft and drive the same generator. This design offers economic advantages thanks to their low investment costs, excellent efficiency and a high degree of flexibility during operation. Together, they will be able to supply up to two million homes with clean power.

Patriot, which will fire local Marcellus shale gas, will have an electrical generating capacity of 829 megawatts (MW) in combined-cycle duty. Like its sister plant, Liberty, Patriot will consist of two SGT6-8000H gas turbines, two SST6-5000 steam turbines, two hydrogen-cooled SGen6-2000H generators, and two heat recovery steam generators, along with the complete electrical system and SPPA-T3000 instrumentation and control system. In addition, Siemens will provide maintenance and service for the main components associated with the gas turbine under a long term service program. Parts, inspections, and scheduled service/maintenance, along with Siemens’ Power Diagnostics™ remote monitoring and diagnostics, are included in the comprehensive service agreement.
