Siemens selected as technology partner for two biomass power plants in Georgia
US-based Siemens Corporation, a subsidiary of Germany-headed global technology major Siemens AG has announced that it has been selected as technology partner for two biomass power projects being developed for Georgia Renewable Power LLC. Acting as the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contractor, MasTec Power Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of US-based MasTec Inc., chose Siemens to supply steam turbines, generators and transformers for both projects.
According to a statement, the biomass power plants, Georgia Renewable – Franklin, LLC in Carnesville, GA and Georgia Renewable – Madison, LLC in Colbert, GA, will each feature Siemens’ SST-600 steam turbines, SGen-100A air-cooled generators and three-phase step-up transformer technologies, leveraging the company’s global engineering expertise to provide efficient and flexible power generation.
Siemens will also deliver an SPPA-T3000 Control System to maximize overall plant performance through data analytics while also improving safety, efficiency and reliability. The value of the order has not been disclosed.
As the future of power generation in the United States continues to include renewable energy into the power grid, we are proud that Siemens has the technical portfolio and expertise to help the Georgia Renewable Power projects, and local communities, reach their renewable targets, said John Gibson, Country Division Lead for Siemens US Power and Gas.
Slated for operation in summer 2019, the Georgia Renewable Power projects will be capable of supplying power to approximately 120 000 homes while reducing emissions, helping to meet Georgia’s renewable energy targets.
We are excited to work with Siemens on this important project which will bring clean, renewable power to Georgia customers, and look forward to working with Siemens on other projects in the future, said Earl Collins, President MasTec Power Corporation.
