Siemens and Holland Board of Public Works are celebrating the commissioning
of Holland Energy Park in Holland, Michigan – a natural gas- fueled combined
cycle power plant using Siemens
gas turbine technology.
Siemens supplied two SGT- 800 gas turbines, one SST-400 steam turbine, low- and medium-voltage electrical equipment and power transformers, as well as a long-term service contract for the gas turbines.
The new plant’s cogeneration capabilities provide a high fuel efficiency level and will generate nearly 125 MW in summer and 145 MW in winter. Managed with Siemens’ SPPA-T3000 control system, the plant provides modern, sustainable and reliable power generation.
As the trend toward decentralized power generation continues, communities like Holland are working collaboratively to address their power generation needs in more socially, economically and environmentally responsible ways. Holland Energy Park will harness cleaner-burning natural gas, which is expected to reduce carbon emissions by about half.
Barry Nicholls, Senior Vice President for Power Systems Sales, Siemens Power and Gas Division. “Holland Energy Park represents the future of power generation in America, utilizing innovative solutions to provide the community with reliable, efficient and affordable energy.”
