Siemens Energy’s first H-class gas turbine in Mainland China achieves first fire successfully

The first unit of Siemens Energy’s SGT5-8000H heavy-duty gas turbine for Guangzhou Zengcheng Gas Combined Cooling, Heating and Power (CCHP) project had its first fire successfully recently. Invested by Huadian Fuxin Energy Corporation Limited (Huadian Fuxin), a subsidiary of China Huadian Corporation Ltd (CHD), this major milestone marked the successful completion of the installation and commissioning work in previous months, showing the unit took another solid step towards commercial operation. Upon project completion, it will become an important energy support for Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macau Greater Bay Area and Guangzhou, helping Guangzhou to speed up becoming a new smart city.

"As one of the important forces in driving global energy transition, China is committed to achieving a sustainable energy future by building a green, low-carbon and clean modern energy system,” said Yao Zhenguo,CEO of Siemens Energy Hub China. “The successful first fire of the H-class gas turbine we provided for China's largest CCHP project not only confirms Siemens' constant commitment to support China's energy transition, but also sets another good example of working side by side with our customer to steadily advance the progress of the project in this unprecedented situation."

Siemens Energy supplied two sets of equipment including two SGT5 - 8000H gas turbines, two steam turbines and four generators for Huadian Fuxin. It is the first double H-class gas turbines project in China, and currently the second unit is under construction.

Wang Xin, chairman from Huadian Fuxin Guangzhou Energy Co., Ltd., said, "Zengcheng CCHP project is a key project of Guangdong Province's 13th Five-Year Plan. It’s a heavy task with a tight schedule. After fully considering the prevention and control of the epidemic, we, together with Siemens work hard to push forward the project and finally achieve a successful first fire. The success shows Siemens' rich commercially operating fleet experience and has laid a solid foundation for our cooperation in a wider field in the future. "

Siemens Energy’s H-class gas turbines are widely used in combined heat and power plants as one of the most efficient ways of converting fuels into usable energy. Up to now, the H-class turbine has been on the market for about a decade and exceeded 1.5 million fired hours of commercial operation. With almost 100 machines sold, the H-class turbine is one of the highest net efficiency, outstanding reliability and powerful gas turbine products currently in commercial operation.
