Siemens to provide long-term service at two power plants in Argentina

•   Service, maintenance and performance upgrades for Genelba and Genelba 21 power plants
•   Includes Power Diagnostics® and Remote Monitoring from Siemens Digital Services for Energy portfolio

Building on the continued success of its energy business in Argentina, Siemens has agreements with Pampa Energia S.A. to provide long-term service and maintenance at two power plants in the country. One agreement covers the SGT5-2000E gas turbine operating at the Genelba 21 simple cycle power plant for a period of 10 years. The other is an eight-year service and maintenance agreement for the two SGT5-4000F gas turbines and the SST-5000 steam turbine in operation at the Genelba combined cycle power plant (CCPP). Both plants are located in Marcos Paz, Province of Buenos Aires, Argentina. Together they can produce 825 megawatts (MW) of electricity to the region, enough to power approximately 83,000 homes.

“As Argentina works to strengthen its energy infrastructure, the continued reliability of its power plants is of vital importance,” said Tim Frace, Vice President, Siemens Power Generation Services, Latin America region. “We are committed to providing our innovative service, maintenance products and digital service solutions to Pampa Energia, as well as our engineering expertise and local support, and look forward to our close collaboration.”

The agreements cover spare parts, repairs, logistics support, field services as well as Siemens Power Diagnostics®, part of the company’s Digital Services for Energy portfolio of data-driven solutions. For Genelba 21, Siemens will upgrade the gas turbine blades with Siemens’ Si3D blades. Si3D blades are designed to improve power output and thermal efficiency through a combination of 3D aerodynamic design, advanced sealing, cooling improvements, and advanced materials. At the Genelba CCPP plant, Siemens will upgrade the inlet guide vane system (IGV) on the plant’s turbines. The IGV upgrade optimizes performance and increases the power from the gas turbines by adjusting the IGV positioning system to function at a wider operating range.

In September 2016, Siemens signed a letter of intent with the government of Argentina in order to intensify cooperation with the country in several fields, with energy being one of the main focus areas.
