Siemens Energy and its consortium partner Samsung C&T have successfully designed, erected and commissioned the PLP combined-cycle power plant (CCPP) on Jurong Island in Singapore on a full turnkey basis within contractual conditions. Owner of the plant is Pacific Light Power Pte. Ltd. (PLP). With an installed electrical generating capacity of approximately 800 megawatts, an efficiency of over 58 percent (based on site conditions), and great flexibility, the two new power plant units will make an ecofriendly contribution toward meeting the country’s significant rise in demand for reliable power. PLP’s new plant is one of the most efficient operating units in the Singapore power market today, and the first in Singapore to be completely fuelled by liquefied natural gas from the new terminal. The units can also be operated with piped natural gas and fuel oil as back-up.
Siemens and its consortium partner were responsible for full erection and commissioning the power plant. This power plant topped the contractually guaranteed figures for power output, NOx and CO2 emissions. The execution also set a new benchmark in Singapore in terms of health and safety, and consequently has received the SHARP Award from Singapore’s Workplace Safety and Health Council (WSH).
“PLP is delighted to announce the successful completion of its facility on Jurong Island. This significant milestone was achieved through the partnership we have with our contractor Siemens/Samsung and the strong support from the banking community and various government agencies,” commented Yu Tat Ming, CEO of PacificLight Power.
