ERLANGEN, Germany (June 12, 2014) — Siemens Energy and its consortium partner Samsung C&T have successfully designed, erected and commissioned the combined-cycle power plant (CCPP) on Jurong Island in Singapore on a full turnkey basis within contractual conditions. The owner of the plant is Pacific Light Power Pte. Ltd. (PLP). With an installed electrical generating capacity of approximately 800 megawatts, an efficiency of more than 58 percent (based on site conditions), and great flexibility, the two new power plant units will make an ecofriendly contribution toward meeting the country’s significant rise in demand for reliable power.
PLP’s new plant is one of the most efficient operating units in the Singapore power market, and the first in Singapore to be completely fueled by liquefied natural gas from the new terminal. The units can also be operated with piped natural gas and fuel oil as backup.
Siemens and its consortium partner were responsible for full erection and commissioning the power plant. This power plant topped the contractually guaranteed figures for power output, NOx and CO2 emissions. The execution also set a new benchmark in Singapore in terms of health and safety, and consequently has received the SHARP Award from Singapore’s Workplace Safety and Health Council (WSH). According to Singapore law, 7.5 million man-hours of work were completed with no lost time incidents (LTI).
“In this project, Siemens Energy Solutions as an experienced and well-recognized EPC contractor in partnership with Samsung C&T once again demonstrated its expertise in integrating the mechanical, electrical and chemical processes of fossil fuel power plants,” said Lothar Balling, executive vice president and head of global project management. “The power plant on Jurong Island was completed with utmost quality, and excellence both in technology and execution.”
“PLP is delighted to announce the successful completion of its facility on Jurong Island. This significant milestone was achieved through the partnership we have with our contractor Siemens/Samsung and the strong support from the banking community and various government agencies,” said Yu Tat Ming, CEO of Pacific Light Power.
The Siemens Energy Sector supplies a broad spectrum of products, services and solutions for power generation in thermal power plants, including renewables and power transmission in grids for the extraction, processing and transport of oil and gas.
