Siemens has received a third order from Belarus to supply SGT-800 industrial gas turbines. This order is for five gas turbines, including associated auxiliary and electrical systems, for a peak load and backup power plant. The new plant will be built at the existing plant location of the Berezovskava CHP plant in Beloozersk, Brest region, in the south-western part of the country.

The order was placed by Brest Republican Unitary Enterprise of Electricity Industry (Brestenergo).

Commissioning of the 254MW plant is scheduled for December 2021. The new facility is designed for 700 operating hours and 350 cold starts per year, and will make an important contribution to grid stabilisation.

Siemens’ complete scope of supply includes the five SGT-800 gas turbines with AC generators and the PCS 7 control system. It also comprises the gas receiving station, along with high-, medium-, and low-voltage equipment.
