Lansing opts for SGT-8003 January 2019
Siemens has received an order from Lansing Board of Water & Light (BWL) to supply three SGT-800 gas turbines and generators for their new gas-fired generating station in Lansing, Michigan. The new plant will feature three SGT-800s, two operating in combined cycle and one in simple cycle, to provide efficient base load power and operational flexibility. This configuration will be capable of producing about 250 MW.
“With more than 350 units sold worldwide, six million operating hours, and an overall fleet reliability of 99.5%, these highly flexible gas turbines can produce power in less than ten minutes”’ says Siemens.
The gas turbine packages will be manufactured in Finspång, Sweden, with commercial operation of the plant scheduled for spring 2021.
