Siemens to supply power plant equipment to Belarus

Siemens has received an order from Belarus to supply equipment for a peak load power plant. The order was placed by the state-run energy provider RUE Minskenergo. The six SGT-800 industrial gas turbines will increase the grid’s reliability and flexibility and support the transition to a new energy mix in Belarus. Commissioning is scheduled for December 2021. 
The six gas turbines will be deployed in a new gas power plant in Minsk, which will ensure grid stability and reliable power supply in the Republic of Belarus. The plant’s electrical capacity, which is designed for 700 operating hours and 350 cold starts per year, will be 300 megawatts. This capacity can be made available in as little as 15 minutes after a cold start.
Siemens’ complete scope of supply includes the six SGT-800 gas turbines as well as associated generators and the control system PCS 7. It also includes the gas receiving station as well as high- medium-, and low-voltage equipment.
