Siemens Receives an Order for H-Class Gas Turbines from Panda Power Funds

Siemens Energy 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. Patriot, which will fire local Marcellus shale gas, will have an electrical generating capacity of 829 MW in combined-cycle duty and 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. The total value of the contract, which includes a long-term maintenance and service contract, is approximately $400 million.
