Siemens has won an order for a new combined cycle gas turbine at King’s Lynn power station in Norfolk, UK, owned by Centrica. The gas-fired power plant will consist of one unit in a single shaft configuration, and will deliver 380 MW. The agreement includes the installation and long-term servicing of the gas turbine, and the servicing of the steam turbine and generator, as well as modernisation of the existing instrumentation and control systems.
The scope of supply encompasses replacement of the existing V94.3 gas turbine with a new SGT5-4000F gas turbine from Siemens’ Berlin factory. In addition, the existing generator and steam turbine will be refurbished. Also included in Siemens’ scope of supply are services including extension of the air cooled condenser and an update of the existing Distributed Control System to the latest SPPA-T3000 Control System. Centrica will refurbish the HRSG and parts of the balance pf plant. The long-term service agreement is for 12 years, and includes spare parts, the performance of scheduled turnkey outages, as well as Power Diagnostics, part of Siemens’ Digital Services for Energy portfolio.
