Development of the Holland Energy Park is progressing on schedule with the Board’s recent approval of three important equipment purchases.
First, the HBPW contracted with Siemens on the purchase of two natural gas combustion turbines for $37.7 million. Against bids from two other global manufacturers, Siemens offered the most competitive deal with two SGT-800 units rated at 67MW each.
Second, the HBPW has approved a contract with Vogt Power International on the purchase of the plant’s two heat recovery steam generator (HRSG) units for $12.2 million. These units will recapture energy from the exhaust heat of the natural gas turbines as part of the combined cycle efficiency process.
Third, the HBPW has approved another purchase from Siemens of the plant’s steam turbine generator. Valued at $8.2 million, this unit will extract the steam energy captured by the HRSG units to generate additional electricity.
These contracts make up the most important equipment purchases necessary for construction of the combined cycle facility. They support the HBPW’s careful strategy of implementing reliable, world-class technologies to build our future Energy Park.
