Siemens has been awarded a €700m (£607m) contract from Dutch utility, Enecogen, to build a combined cycle power plant in the Netherlands.
According to Siemens, the facility is expected to be one of Europe’s most efficient fossil-fuelled plant due to its low emissions and high operating efficiency.
The power plant, which will have a combined capacity of approximately 870MW, is scheduled to begin operations in late 2011.
As well as the gas turbine, steam turbine and generator, Siemens will supply the entire electrical and instrumentation and control (I&C) systems and hand over the power plant as a turnkey installation. Siemens will also be responsible for long-term plant maintenance.
