Siemens to supply nine compact steam turbines to Great Britain and the United States
Within a period of just a few weeks, Siemens has received orders from customers in Great Britain and the United States for a total of nine compact steam turbines. The turbines are to be manufactured at Siemens’ production site in Frankenthal, Germany. Three SST-040 turbines have been ordered by the Dutch energy provider Kara Energy Systems B.V. for biomass power plants in Great Britain, while the U.S.-based company Airclean Energy in Seattle, Washington, has placed an order for six SST-110 compact steam turbines. “These new orders underscore the growing demand for small units to serve distributed energy-producing solutions,” emphasizes Volker Neumann, Siemens’ location manager at the Frankenthal plant. “With both these orders, we are contributing to sustainable energy supply in Great Britain and the United States.”….
