The facility will be a Siemens combined cycle power plant, featuring the Siemens record-breaking H-class technology in a facility designed for fast, flexible operation to support renewable integration. Siemens Financial Services is providing an equity investment and will own 20% of the project alongside Tyr Energy, Inc. and Kansai Electric Power Co., Inc.

Slated for operation in spring 2020, the Hickory Run Energy Center will be capable of supplying power for approximately 1,000,000 homes. In addition, Siemens has signed a long-term service agreement to help ensure the reliability, availability and operational performance of the units. The service will include Siemens advanced remote monitoring and diagnostics, part of the Siemens Digital Services portfolio.

Siemens will deliver two H-class gas turbines, one steam turbine and three generators. The gas turbines and steam turbine will be manufactured at Siemens’ Charlotte Energy Hub, which is the main production facility for Siemens’ 60 Hz power generation.

The global LNG industry is becoming increasingly interconnected as grassroots export projects get off the ground. Another technology route for processing gas into fuels—GTL—is attracting renewed attention due to improving economics. Small-scale solutions for both LNG and GTL are at the forefront of new technological developments, while major projects using more conventional technologies continue to start up around the world.

During this webcast, we will focus on LNG, GTL, gas processing technology developments and deployments, operations, small-scale solutions, transportation, trading, distribution, safety, regulatory affairs, business analysis and more.
