By using wet compression, each turbine can generate an additional 25 megawatts (MW), and at the same time, reduce the NOx emissions by more than 30% per turbine.
The customer is the Ministry of Electricty in Egypt represented by Middle Delta Electricity Production Company & Upper Egypt Electricity Production Company.
Siemens will install the first two systems during scheduled outages between January and April 2011. Thus, the Ministry will be able to produce an additional 50 MW of capacity before the summer peak of 2011.
Zwirn added that "It secures valuable additional power output during the summer peak and, at the same time, demonstrates Siemens' ability to provide innovative solutions for our customers"
Wet compression is designed to increase the power output of the gas turbine by reducing compressor inlet temperatures, intercooling the compressor and increasing mass flow throughout the turbine.
This makes Siemens the world's largest provider of environmentally compatible technology. Using the appropriate Siemens products and solutions, customers have reduced their carbon emission (CO2) by 270 million tons over the same period; an amount equal to total annual CO2 emissions of Hong Kong, London, New York, Tokyo, Delhi and Singapore.
