#PictureOfTheWeek: Siemens gas turbine on the way to record-setting power plant. Read more:

The combined cycle gas turbine (CCGT) power plant at the Lausward location in the port of Düsseldorf, currently under construction and due to enter service in 2016, is aiming for no less than three world records: It will have an electrical output of 595 MW, the highest ever for a single combined cycle unit; its net energy conversion efficiency will add up to more than 61 percent; and for the first time it will be possible to extract 300 MW of thermal energy from a single power plant unit in combined cycle operation. In this way, the overall efficiency of natural gas as a fuel rises to 85 percent. The heart of the Lausward CCGT power plant's Fortuna unit is the extremely powerful SGT5-8000H gas turbine from Siemens, which has already been sold 28 times around the world and is now in commercial use on three continents. Highly efficient and flexible CCGT power plants ideally ...
