Siemens has received an order from South Korean utility GS Electric Power and Services Co.

Bugok 3, which has an electrical capacity of 400 MW, will have an efficiency of more than 60% and supply electricity to more than 300 000 people, Siemens said.
Siemens will supply the Bugok 3 power plant as a turnkey project. The scope of supply includes a new-generation SGT6-8000H gas turbine, SST6-5000HI-L steam turbine, a hydrogen-cooled generator SGEN6-2000H, a Benson HRSG, electrical equipment and the instrumentation and controls system SPPA-T3000. A long-term maintenance agreement was also concluded for the main components. The natural gas-fired power plant is scheduled to come online in the summer of 2013.
