Siemens receives an order from Belarus

24 March 2020

Siemens has received an order from Belarus to supply SGT-800 industrial gas turbines. The new order covers five gas turbines, including associated auxiliary and electrical systems, for a peak load and backup power plant. The new plant will be built at the existing power plant location of the Berezovskaya combined heat and power plant in Beloozersk, Brest Region, in the south-western part of the country. The order was placed by Brest Republican Unitary Enterprise of Electricity Industry (Brestenergo). With an electrical capacity of 254 megawatts, the new plant will help further strengthen the power grid’s reliability and stability. Commissioning is scheduled for December 2021. 

Siemens has received orders from Belarus for a total of 11 SGT-800 gas turbines for three peak load and backup power plants. The new facility in Beloozersk is designed for 700 operating hours and 350 cold starts per year and thus makes another contribution to supporting the stabilization of the energy grid.

Siemens’ scope of supply includes the five SGT-800 gas turbines with AC generators and the PCS 7 control system. It also comprises the gas receiving station, along with high- medium-, and low-voltage equipment.
