Siemens Energy has received an order for the supply of two power plant units with H-class gas turbines for the Liberty combined cycle power plant in Pennsylvania. The end customer is a subsidiary of Panda Power Funds. The overall power plant is to be erected by Gemma-Lane. The Liberty power plant will consist of two power plant units, which will be erected as single-shaft configurations, each with an H-class gas turbine as the main component.
The plant will have an electrical capacity of 829 megawatts (MW) in combined-cycle duty. Thanks to the H-class technology this plant will be one of the most modern gas-fired power plants on the East Coast of the U.S. It will be able to supply up to one million homes with clean power. The order volume for Siemens, including a long-term maintenance and service contract, is around US$400 million. Commissioning of the plant is scheduled for 2016.
