cogen & biomass: Round-up of recent projects

Belarus breakthrough

1 June 2007

A gas-fired CHP plant is to be supplied to Belarus by Siemens Power Generation’s Industrial Gas Turbines Subdivision in a deal worth more than 10 million euro. Commissioning is scheduled to take place early 2008.

Siemens will supply an SSC-300 cogen plant – comprising two SGT-300 gas turbines, two heat recovery boilers, low voltage system, medium voltage system and an automatic control system – to PJSC Grodno Azot, the largest chemical manufacturer in Belarus.

The plant will provide steam for production of fertilisers, chemicals and consumer goods. The SSC-300 plant is described by Siemens as a “new concept.” It is a modularised small CHP plant with an installed capacity of 7.5 MWe and 19 t/h of steam. A high degree of pre-engineering maximises standardisation, promising higher reliability and reduced lead times. The total efficiency is 90.3%.

Siemens sees the Belarus project as an “important first reference” for this new product from its Lincoln, UK, factory (formerly Alstom’s) combined with “engineering and project management skills” from its Finspong site (also formerly Alstom’s) in Sweden.
