2 September 2015

Siemens has signed a contract for the delivery of 18 model SGT-800 industrial gas turbines to Thailand and will also be responsible for the long-term service for the turbines. Six of the turbines have a capacity of 53 MW each, while the capacity of the remaining twelve units is 50.5 MW each. The units are to be installed in nine combined cycle cogeneration plants with a total installed electrical capacity of 1100 MW.
The customer is TEC Project Services Corporation (a subsidiary of the Japanese Toyo Engineering Corporation) which is erecting the plants for Gulf MP, a joint venture of the Thai Gulf Energy Development Co., Ltd. and the Japanese Mitsui & Co. The nine power plants, each equipped with two SGT-800 gas turbines, are to be erected in five new industrial parks.
Thailand is the largest market for Siemens for this gas turbine model, with 70 SGT-800 units having been sold to date. Twenty of these are already in commercial operation. The market share in Thailand for SGT-800 was as high as 65 % in the last five years.
As of June 2015, 270 of the model SGT-800 gas turbines have been sold worldwide and the fleet has accumulated more than three million operating hours.
