Siemens has been awarded a long-term service agreement (LTP) for Xiaoshan Power Plant and the customer is Zhengjiang Zheneng Electric Power Co., Ltd. The agreement covers scheduled maintenance, spare parts, technical support, warranties, program management, power diagnostics and performance monitoring for the plant’s Unit No. 5 SGT5-4000F gas turbine for more than 10 years.
The agreement will enable Xiaoshan Power Plant to take advantage of Siemens program management services, with dedicated professional service support via experts from Siemens district service office (DSO) in China, backed by Siemens resources. The Xiaoshan Plant is a subsidiary of Zhejiang Zheneng Electric Power Co. Ltd., and operates three SGT5-4000F gas turbines.
The long-term service program offered to customers by Siemens Power Generation Services is said to provide flexibility in the maintenance of power plants while maximizing operating efficiency and availability. The programs also offer the highest performance with the lowest risk for agreed service scope, which can significantly reduce the customer’s risk management cost.
Siemens was first awarded the LTP service contract for Units No. 3 and No. 4 in 2010. With this order, Siemens Power Generation Services has been awarded 12 LTP contracts in China.
Gery Nocker, Executive Vice President of Siemens Ltd., China and General Manager of Power Generation Services Division Region Asia said at the signing ceremony recently held in Hangzhou, “With this newly signed LTP for Unit 5, we will continue to support and ensure the optimal performance and maximize the lifecycle assets of the power plant.”
