Siemens has signed a contract for the delivery of 18 model SGT-800 industrial gas turbines to Thailand. Six of the turbines have a capacity of 53 MW each, while the capacity of the remaining twelve units is 50.5 MW each.
The units are to be installed in nine combined cycle cogeneration power plants with a total installed electrical capacity of 1,100 MW on behalf of TEC Project Services Corporation (TPS), a subsidiary of the Japanese Toyo Engineering Corporation (TEC).
TPS is erecting the industrial power plants for the Thai company Gulf, itself a joint venture of the Thai Gulf Energy Development Co., Ltd. and the Japanese Mitsui & Co.
The nine industrial power plants, each equipped with two SGT-800 gas turbines, are to be erected in five new industrial parks: Eastern Seaboard Industrial Estate, Hemaraj Eastern Seaboard, Hi-Tech Industrial Estate, Hemaraj Rayong Industrial Land and Hemaraj Saraburi Industrial Land.
Under the terms of the deal Siemens will also provide technical field assistance for installing the units and a long-term service agreement.
