Lubmin cogeneration plant to use Siemens turbine
Siemens Energy delivered an SGT-750 industrial gas turbine for the cogeneration plant in Lubmin near Greifswald, Germany. Located directly at the landfall station of Nord Stream's Baltic Sea pipeline, the cogeneration plant is the first power plant to be placed into operation with this gas turbine. Industriekraftwerk Greifswald, a joint venture of WINGAS and E.ON Energy Projects, is the Plant operator.
With an electrical capacity of 37MW, the gas turbine can bring the cogeneration plant up to full-load operating mode in just ten minutes. The electricity it generates is fed into the grid, while the waste heat from the gas turbine serves to heat the natural gas upon its arrival at the landfall station.
"The Siemens SGT-750 gas turbine deployed in Lubmin stands out thanks to its high efficiency. At the same time, it is very cost effective and environmentally friendly to operate. In addition, the turbine has the lowest maintenance times in its performance class", said Thierry Toupin, CEO of the Siemens Energy Sector's Gas Turbine and Generators Business Unit.
