Siemens has extended its packaging agreement for gas turbines with the engineering company Centrax Ltd. to 31 European countries. Since June 2011, Centrax has packaged Siemens SGT-300 and SGT-400 gas turbine series under the product names CX300 and CX400.
Centrax supplies gas turbine-driven generator sets with Siemens aeroderivative and industrial gas turbines from 4 to 66 MW to the power and co-generation, mid-merit, downstream oil and gas, and stand-by markets in Europe. Siemens has appointed Centrax as the primary route to market for the sale of industrial power generation and distributed energy packages for these two gas turbine models in the extended European market.
The agreement initially included Belgium, France, Italy, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom, and has now been expanded to 26 more countries. Some of them are Austria, Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Cyprus, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Sweden, Slovakia, Slovenia, Croatia, Spain, Switzerland, and Turkey.
Wolfgang Konrad, CEO of the Distributed Generation business unit within the Siemens Power and Gas Division said the company’s European customers will have access to gas turbine technology, combined with Centrax’s packaging know-how in the industrial power generation market. Richard Barr, joint managing director at Centrax said CX400 units to each of the three leading European contract energy management companies have already been supplied.
