Siemens Gas and Power and PJSC Kazanorgsintez , one of Russia’s largest chemical companies, have signed a contract for the turnkey construction of a 250MW combined cycle power plant in Tatarstan, Russia. Commercial operation is scheduled to start in 2023. Siemens also signed two service contracts, one with Kazanorgsintez for the new plant, and one for a 495MW power plant with Siemens equipment owned by PJSC Nizhnekamskneftekhim. Both companies are part of the TAIF Group. The total value of all three contracts is approximately €290 million.

Siemens will act as general contractor for the construction of the new industrial power plant, and will deliver a SGT5-2000E gas turbine and an SST-600 steam turbine. The scope of supply also includes the gas and steam turbine generators, the SPPA-T3000 control system, and power distribution system equipment for the plant. Siemens will implement the project jointly with its Turkish subcontractor and construction company ENKA .

The two service contracts include onsite service inspections, spare part supply, online monitoring of the power plant’s operation, and reconditioning of hot parts.

The new plant will be fired with syngas, a byproduct of production in pyrolysis ovens at the Kazanorgsintez ethylene plant.
