First order for Siemens SGT-750 industrial gas turbine

Siemens Energy has received a first order for the supply of its SGT-750 industrial gas turbine. Purchaser is Kassel-based WINGAS GmbH, a joint venture of the BASF subsidiary Wintershall and the Russian company Gazprom, which operates a 2500km Germany-wide natural gas pipeline network. The 36MW turbine will be deployed in the landfall station of the Nord Stream pipeline in Lubmin.

The Nord Stream pipeline, which in the future will link Europe with the large natural gas reserves in Siberia, will end at Lubmin near Greifswald in Germany. The SGT-750 turbine will be deployed in a cogeneration plant at the landfall station, where the electric power generated will be fed into the grid. The heat from the SGT-750 will reheat the pipeline gas which has lost pressure during its journey from Siberia under the cold ocean, and restore it to the temperature needed for further distribution, compensating for the Joule-Thomson effect which causes cooling of the gas during a pressure drop.

Siemens is responsible for supply, installation and commissioning of the SGT-750 gas turbine together with the generator and auxiliaries, and for the electrical infrastructure for the grid connection. “We’re pleased that the oil and gas company WINGAS has opted for our new gas turbine,” said Markus Tacke, CEO of the Industrial Power Business Unit of Siemens Energy. “WINGAS is a pioneer in the use of cutting edge technology and sets milestones in these endeavors. This company was one of the first customers for our SGT-700 gas turbine. This new SGT-750 gas turbine will stand out thanks to its high level of profitability and ecofriendliness, rounded out by its high degree of availability and reliability.”
The recently launched SGT-750 represents the latest development in the Siemens gas turbine portfolio. With an electrical efficiency of 38.7% which corresponds to a shaft efficiency of 40%. The SGT-750 has the highest uptime in its class, said the company in a press statement.
