Learn more here about the SGT5-8000H #gas turbine at the heart of the combined cycle power plant in Düsseldorf, Germany

The SGT5-8000H gas turbine developed by Siemens forms the heart of the highly efficient combined cycle power plant with district heat extraction in Düsseldorf, Germany. With an electrical unit output of around 595 megawatts (MW) and a net efficiency of over 61 percent, the Lausward CHP CCPP will set a new world. In addition, the generated thermal energy will be used for the district heating system in the city of Düsseldorf. Never before has it been possible to extract 300 MWth of district heat from a single power plant unit in combined cycle operation. Thus, the overall efficiency of the natural gas fuel will be around 85 percent. The new plant in Duesseldorf will be one of the most efficient and environmentally sustainable plants in the world. The picture shows the assembly of the SGT5-8000H at the gas turbine plant in Berlin.
