Siemens PG will build the new natural gas-fired power plant at the existing power plant site of Emile Huchet in Saint Avold in Lorraine, about 20km west of the French-German border near Saarbruecken.
The plant consists of two units, each having a capacity of 430MW, making the facility France’s largest new combined cycle plant to date. The output is sufficient to supply as many as one million households in France with electricity.
Siemens PG will supply two SGT5-4000F gas turbines, two steam turbines and two generators, as well as all the mechanical and electrical systems and its SPPA-T3000 instrumentation and control system.
The plant is scheduled to go into operation in early 2010.
