09 July 2019
Siemens will supply a complete power island for the new Yerevan 2 combined cycle power plant at the existing plant site in the Armenian capital. The company will also operate and maintain the plant for a period of 20 years. Siemens Financial Services (SFS) – Siemens' financing arm – holds a 40% share in the special-purpose project company ArmPower founded specifically for this project. Yerevan 2 is the largest single order that Siemens has ever received from Armenia.
The new combined cycle power plant will have an electrical capacity of 250 MW and is expected to go into operation by mid-2021. Siemens' scope of supply includes the power island, which consists of an SGT5-2000E gas turbine, an SST-600 steam turbine, two SGen-100A generators, and the heat recovery steam generator. It also covers the SPPA-T3000 control system. In addition to the entire operation of the power plant and maintenance for a period of 20 years, the operating and maintenance agreement also includes power diagnostic services, support from the Remote Expert Center, and remote operation support.
