Siemens wins 102m D-mark order for Slovak power plant

A consortium led by the German industrial group Siemens AG has won a 102 million D-mark order to build a gas and steam turbine power plant in Slovakia, Siemens said on May 18. The contract is from the Slovak steel group VSŽ Holding, and calls for the construction of a power station with an output of 85 MW of electric energy and 160 tons of steam per hour. The other partners in the consortium include Voest-Alpine Industrieanlegenbau GmbH in Linz and VSŽ Inžiniering. VSŽ, Slovakia's largest steel producer and private employer, will operate the plant itself. Siemens' energy production unit will prepare the gas turbine at its Berlin plant, while the steam turbine and the generator for the two turbines will be built in Siemens' Mühlheim-Ruhr factory.
