Siemens Supplying Turbines, Generators For Canadian Power Plant

The Siemens SGT6-5000F gas turbine will be manufactured in Charlotte, North Carolina, USA.

Siemens will deliver the main components for installation at
SaskPower’s planned Chinook Power Station, a 350 MW natural gas-fired
power plant being built near Swift Current, Saskatchewan, Canada.
Siemens will supply one SGT6-5000F gas turbine, a SST-900 steam turbine, a
SGen6-1000A generator, and a SGen6-100A generator. The combined cycle
facility will pair the Siemens gas and steam turbines to make more efficient
utilization of the fuel consumed by the power plant, the company said. This will be accomplished by utilizing the exhaust heat from the gas turbine to generate steam to power the steam turbine, greatly improving overall power-plant efficiency.
“We are pleased to supply our industry-leading turbines, generators and electrical
equipment for this modern power infrastructure project,” said John Gibson, senior
vice president of Sales North America at Siemens Power and Gas. “Harnessing
cleaner-burning and affordable natural gas, this fuel-efficient facility will deliver
reliable power while also helping to reduce emissions. We look forward to continuing
to use our innovation to help grow Canada’s thermal power market.”
