ERLANGEN, Germany (June 13, 2014) – Siemens has received an order for supply of a turbine island for the Jaworzno III steam power plant in Poland. With the powerful SST5-6000 steam turbine, the plant will have an installed electrical capacity of 910 megawatts (MW). The maximum net capacity is specified as 843.5 MW, with a net efficiency of approximately 45.9 percent. This will make the Jaworzno III plant, with its ultra-supercritical steam parameters, one of the most efficient steam power plants in Europe.
Commissioning is scheduled for April 2019. The new plant will replace older units currently installed by Tauron. This will result in reduction of CO2 emissions by about 25 percent. The customer is SPV-Rafako, an affiliate of Rafako, who will erect the plant for Tauron Polska Energia in a consortium with Mostostal Warszawa. The order volume for Siemens is approximately $283 million.
Siemens’ scope of supply includes the engineering and the delivery of the turbine island, consisting of a model SST5-6000 steam turbine, a model SGen-3000W generator, a SCon-7000 condenser, the condensate and feedwater system, and the high-voltage components. The order also includes technical consulting for the installation and commissioning of the supplied components and systems.
“We are pleased that Rafako puts its trust in our world-class products and in our solutions competence. This order for the supply of the turbine island for the Jaworzno III power plant marks a significant milestone for Siemens in Poland,” said Rainer Hauenschild, CEO of Energy Solutions within the Siemens Energy Sector.
“For us, cooperation with Siemens for Jaworzno 910MW project is one of the most important factors for a successful execution of the project. We are looking forward to our smooth and efficient collaboration,” said Krzysztof Burek, member of the management board of Rafako.
The Siemens Energy Sector supplies a broad spectrum of products, services and solutions for power generation in thermal power plants and using renewables, power transmission in grids and for the extraction, processing and transport of oil and gas.
