Siemens wins first order for SGT-750 industrial gas turbine in North America

Siemens Energy has received a first order from North America for the supply of its SGT-750 industrial gas turbine. Purchaser is Energia MK KF, S.A. de C.V., a subsidiary of textile manufacturer Grupo Kaltex. When commercially operational in October 2013, the 36 MW facility will supply electricity to the textile facilities operated by Grupo Kaltex in Mexico.

The Energia MK KF, S.A. de C.V., combined heat and power plant with a total installed capacity of 36 MW will be located in Altamira, in Tamaulipas State, Mexico. One-third of the total electrical capacity will be used for the Kaltex facility on site and two-thirds will be fed into the grid for other Kaltex facilities in Mexico. The plant will meet approximately 40 percent of Kaltex?s power needs in Mexico. The SGT-750 turbine will generate all the process steam needed for producing synthetic fibers.

The Siemens scope of supply encompasses supply, installation and commissioning of the SGT-750 gas turbine together with the electrical generator, heat recovery steam generator (HRSG) with supplementary firing system and auxiliary systems.

?This order from Mexico shows that our SGT-750 gas turbine is now also gaining momentum in the 60-Hertz market,? said Markus Tacke, CEO of the Industrial Power Business Unit of Siemens Energy. The SGT-750 gas turbine stands out thanks to its customer benefits in particular, its high degree of availability and reliability. With a downtime of only 17 days in 17 years, if generator swap is done on site, this gas turbine has the highest uptime in its class. The modular design SGT-750 provides the ideal customized solution for excellent serviceability. The machine attains an electrical efficiency of 38.7 percent, which corresponds to a shaft efficiency of 40 percent.

The SGT-750 represents the latest development in the Siemens gas turbine portfolio. The very first order for the supply of a SGT-750 industrial gas turbine came 2011 from WINGAS GmbH, a joint venture of the BASF subsidiary Wintershall and the Russian company Gazprom. The turbine will be deployed in the landfall station of the Nord Stream pipeline in Lubmin, Germany.
