Siemens Energy is to supply global energy procurement company Aker Solutions with a steam turbine-generator for its UK biomass-fired combined heat and power (CHP) plant, the UK’s largest in operation, according to the company.
As the engineering, procurement and construction contractor, Aker Solutions will design and build the 50MW biomass plant adjacent to the Tullis Russell paper mill in Scotland currently under contract to RWE Innogy’s UK subsidiary RWE npower renewables.
Markus Tacke, CEO of the Siemens Energy’s industrial power business unit, said Siemens’ scope of supply for the biomass-fired power plant encompasses the design, engineering, production and installation of an SST-800 steam turbine-generator.
Following the start of commercial operation scheduled for late 2012, Aker’s power plant will provide a low-carbon supply of power and process steam to the paper mill which will eventually be fired with harvested wood and wood waste, added Siemens.
In fiscal 2009, revenue from Siemens’ Environmental Portfolio totalled around €23bn while the company’s wider energy sector segment recorded revenues of approximately €25.8bn and posted a profit of €3.3bn.
Aker Solutions is a global provider of engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning services to the natural resources and energy markets.
