MAN’s MST050 steam turbines for CHP plant in Leipzig

Public utility company, Stadtwerke Leipzig invests in the further development of its gas and steam turbine plant for district heating in Leipzig (Germany).

MAN Energy Solutions has been awarded the contract for two MST050 steam turbines, each with a gearbox, generator, and auxiliary components. The steam turbines with a total power output of approx. 56 MW will be put into operation in a CHP power plant, which supplies the city of Leipzig with electricity and heat.

Currently, the CHP plant generates up to 174 MW of electrical energy and 200 MW of thermal energy. Thanks to the environmentally friendly and efficient cogeneration process, the condensation heat that is not used to generate electricity is utilized in the citywide district heating network – thus reducing the CO2 emissions and using the primary energy from the gas fuel efficiently.

Furthermore, ATU (Analytics Telemetry Unit) boxes by PrimeServ Assist will be integrated in the turbines. These enable the customer not only to have a round-the-clock monitoring of the machine operation, but also to receive fast access to remote support from MAN.

Delivery and installation of the steam turbines in Leipzig are scheduled for Q1 of 2021.
