Combined cycles in Singapore

A consortium led by Siemens has secured an order to construct a cogeneration combined cycle power plant in Singapore.


A consortium led by Siemens Power Generation (PG) has secured an order from Singapore-based PowerSeraya to construct a cogeneration combined cycle power plant.


PowerSeraya is one of the largest power producers in Singapore and provides around 30 percent of the country’s power.


Back in 2002, Siemens PG, together with Samsung, built two combined cycle plants each rated at 370MW for PowerSeraya at the same site. As part of the same order,  these two existing combined cycle plants will also be converted to cogeneration.


The total value of the new order – including a service agreement for ten years – is approximately €520m. Siemens share amounts to approximately €375m.


Siemens, together with its consortium partner Samsung, will build the twin-unit power plant with an output of approximately 800MW in Singapore. The cogeneration combined cycle plant will supply both heat and power: the plant will feed power into the public grid and simultaneously supply process steam to an adjacent refinery operated by Petrochemical Corporation of Singapore.


The new plant is scheduled to come on line in early 2010.
