Siemens Energy to power China’s Greater Bay Area with low-emission power generation technologies

Siemens Energy has entered into agreements separately with Guangdong Energy Group Co., Ltd. and Shenzhen Energy Group Co., Ltd. to deliver a total of four H-class combined cycle power units to their power plants located in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area (GBA) in southern China.

The existing coal-fired power plant will be transformed into a modern, higher-efficiency gas-fired plant, and this will reduce carbon dioxide emission by more than 60 percent. The plant will generate 2.3 billion kWhof power annually and is expected to go into commercial operation in mid-2023.The agreement with Shenzhen Energy includes supplying three H-class combined cycle power units for the Phase II project at Dongbu power plant and the upgrade project at Mawan power plant. The scope includes three SGT5-8000H gas turbines, three SST-5000 steam turbines, three SGen5-3000W generators, and auxiliary systems. The two projects, both located in Shenzhen, are scheduled to go into operation by the end of 2023 and in mid-2024 respectively. The annual total power generation of the two plants is expected to exceed 6 billion kWh.
