Siemens awarded power island order for natural gas-fueled plant in Pennsylvania, USA
Siemens will be supplying the power island for Panda Power Funds’ 1,124 megawatt (MW) Hummel Station combined cycle power plant in Pennsylvania. After becoming operational in early 2018 the facility will supply power for more than one million households in large power markets in the Mid-Atlantic region, including Philadelphia and New York City. Hummel Station is the seventh project in the U.S., and the third project in Pennsylvania, awarded by Panda Power Funds to Siemens. Siemens Financial Services (SFS) is further supporting the project with a $125 million equity investment.
The new Marcellus gas-fueled, combined-cycle power project near Shamokin Dam in Snyder County, Pennsylvania, will occupy 18-acres at the site of the recently retired Sunbury coal-fired power plant. Siemens will deliver the power island consisting of three SGT6-5000F gas turbines, one SST6-5000 steam turbine, three SGen6-1000A air cooled generators as part of the gas turbine package, one hydrogen cooled SGen6-2000H generator as part of the steam turbine package, three NEM DrumPlus HRSGs and the SPPA-T3000 control system for Panda Power Funds.….
