Siemens receives power plant order from Pakistan



October 3, 2017

Siemens has received an order from Pakistan for a complete power island for the new combined cycle Punjab Power Plant Jhang. The order was placed by the China Machinery Engineering Corporation (CMEC). As EPC contractor the Chinese company is building the project for the independent energy provider Punjab Thermal Power (Pvt) Ltd (PTPL). The liquefied natural gas (LNG)-operated plant is being built 250 kilometers southwest of Lahore and will provide a power generating capacity of 1.3 gigawatts.

The power island from Siemens includes two SGT5-8000H gas turbines, one SST-5000 steam turbine, two heat recovery steam generators as well as control and auxiliary systems. Siemens will also be responsible for engineering and project management as well as for the associated on-site services. The power plant will initially feed electricity in simple-cycle operation in December 2018. It will then take up combined cycle operation in November 2019. The order for Siemens is valued at approximately 200 million euros.

"With this project we can help to significantly improve the sustainable, reliable and affordable supply of power to the people in Punjab Province and the whole country," said Willi Meixner, CEO of the Siemens Power and Gas Division. "It is the largest power plant order that Siemens has ever received from Pakistan," Meixner added.

The H-class has been successfully proven in operation, and Siemens has sold 84 of these machines to date. With 47 turbines in commercial operation, the H-class has now completed approximately 500,000 operating hours with an average reliability of approximately 99 percent.
