Siemens to deliver key components for natgas-fired US power plant

Tyr Energy, Inc. has chosen Siemens as the technology partner for the Hickory Run Energy Center—a new 1,000 MW natural gas-fired combined cycle power plant (CCPP)—to be built by Kiewit Power Constructors Co. in Lawrence County, Pennsylvania.

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.
