FRANKE-Filter is pleased to announce our participation in the modernization of the Hiep Phuoc 1 Steam Power Plant in Ho-Chi-Minh-City in Vietnam.
The steam power plant Hiep Phuoc 1 is located in Ho-Chi-Minh-City in Vietnam and is to be modernized into a combined cycle power plant. After the conversion, the power plant's capacity is to be increased by 780 MW to 1,200 MW. By mid 2021, Hiep Phuoc Power should already be able to use the gas-fired power plant to supply around 520 MW to the Vietnamese power grid in open circuit.
For the conversion, Siemens will supply three SGT5-4000F gas turbines, three generators, three heat recovery steam generators, the related electrical equipment and the SPPA-T3000 control system. The upgraded power plant will be fired with regasified liquefied natural gas (LNG) instead of oil. Upon the completion of the upgrade, the waste heat from the gas turbines will be used to generate steam that is used to drive the steam turbines and generators to generate electricity.
By changing the fuel source, using Siemens gas turbines and using the waste heat to generate electricity, the power plant is expected to reduce CO2 emissions up to 50% per kilowatt hour produced on site.
Andreas Pistauer, head of the Asia-Pacific region at Siemens Gas and Power, emphasized that "the expansion to efficient combined-cycle power plant technology will diversify the plant's operating functionality and thus increase the customer's flexibility." Siemens is also proud to support Hiep Phuoc Power Co. Ltd. in optimizing the power supply in Vietnam with an environmentally friendly power plant solution.
The modernized power plant is scheduled to be commissioned in the second half of 2022.
The three Siemens SGT5-4000F gas turbines supplied will be equipped with Oil Mist Separators from FRANKE-Filter.
FRANKE-Filters presence in this project
For this project FRANKE-Filter will equip the three Siemens SGT5-4000F gas turbines with its customized FF2 Oil Mist Separators.
We are very pleased and proud to be a part of this huge project. The retrofit and modernization represents another important step for global environmental protection and a reduction of global emissions.
