Global energy technology company Siemens Energy announced that it has been selected by Shenzhen Energy Corporation (Shenzhen Energy) in China to supply two 460MW F-class gas turbine power islands for Phase Two of the Corporation’s Fengda Power Plant Natural Gas Power Generation Expansion Project.

According to Siemens Energy, the order marks another milestone resulting from the comprehensive strategic partnership agreement signed by the two companies in 2019.

Based on the agreement, the two sides will jointly build energy laboratories and actively expand cooperation in energy technology research and development, comprehensive solutions for clean energy, smart energy and digitalisation, and green hydrogen energy.

Under terms of the technology supply agreement, Siemens Energy will supply two sets of SGT5-4000F gas turbines, steam turbines, generators and related auxiliary equipment for the project. Located in Huizhou City, Guangdong Province, the project is expected to be put into operation in 2023.

When completed, the estimated annual power generation capacity will exceed 2.7 billion kWh and carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions target per unit GDP will be significantly reduced as will nitrogen oxide emissions, states the energy company.

This will mark a significant step in helping meet the rapidly growing power demand in the eastern core area of Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macau Greater Bay Area (GBA) and help ensure the safe and stable operation of the region’s power supply system.

In addition, the project will play an important role in peaking operation in the power load centre.
