Siemens turns over Longview coal-fired plant in West Virginia to customer
"This project demonstrates that highly efficient coal-fired power plants indeed go hand in hand with low emissions and a high degree of environmental compatibility", stated Hal S. Simonds, Director of Projects, Energy Solutions - Americas at Siemens Fossil Power Generation Division. "The performance levels guaranteed by Siemens in the contract were not only maintained but were all surpassed as well". Siemens delivered an SST6-6000 steam turbine, an SGen6-3000W generator and the SPPA-T3000 control system for the Longview plant. Siemens also supplied an innovative system for air pollution control and emissions reduction for the plant which cuts emissions of dust, sulfur-dioxide, nitrous oxides and mercury, thus making a crucial contribution to cleaner coal-based power generation. The boiler for the power plant was manufactured by Foster Wheeler North America Corporation. Kvaerner North American Construction, Inc. was responsible for the construction and erection work.
