Siemens Energy Inc. has been awarded a service program order from Klamath Energy LLC, owned by Iberdrola Renewables. The service program for the Klamath Energy cogeneration plant in Klamath Falls, Oregon, includes combustion turbine parts and service, generator rewinds and modernization upgrades, an inlet heating system, a combustion dynamic protection system (CDPS) and the innovative SPPA-T3000 control system. The upgrades are expected to be completed by mid-2010.
The upgrade scope for the two SGT6-5000F combustion turbines at the 500-MW rated, gas-fired Klamath cogeneration combined cycle plant is intended to increase base load plant power and improve plant base load heat rate. The inlet heating system is designed to allow for more efficient gas turbine operation during colder weather and at lower loads. The contract also includes generator stator rewinds on both combustion turbines and the installation of the innovative SPPA-T3000 control system. The long-term maintenance program includes a Siemens limited term warranty program, which can also help provide Klamath Energy with better maintenance cost predictability.
