Siemens Wins Order for Venezuelan Power Plant

Siemens has won an order to be the supplier of two power islands for the Juan Manuel Valdez Güiria combined cycle power plants in Venezuela for Elecnor, one of Spain’s leading engineering and construction companies. These plants will be constructed in two phases. Siemens will engineer and supply major equipment in the first phase including four gas turbines, four bypass stacks, four generators, and the instrumentation and control equipment. Phase one will have a total capacity of approximately 700 megawatts. Phase two will include engineering and the supply of two steam turbines with generators, four heat recovery steam generators (HRSGs), and the instrumentation and control system. It is erecting the plant on a turnkey basis for Petróleos de Venezuela S. A., the largest oil company in Latin America. The plant is scheduled to begin commercial operation in 2015.

The Juan Manuel Valdez Güiria plants are to be built in the port city Güiria in the Eastern Venezuelan province of Sucre.

“This important project to Venezuela’s power needs marks another milestone in our long history of supplying reliable power plant solutions in Venezuela,” said CEO of Energy Solutions at Siemens Energy, Rainer Hauenschild. “Siemens has been active in Venezuela for almost 60 years and we are currently active in the construction of the Termocentro power plant near Caracas and Termozulia III in Maracaibo.”
