ERLANGEN, Germany - Siemens continues to be on a successful course with its energy business in Argentina: the company has secured orders to supply a total of four turnkey industrial power plants to the country. Six SGT-A65 TR (former Industrial Trent 60) gas turbines will form the heart of two plants in the cities of Luján and Matheu in Buenos Aires Province in eastern Argentina. Siemens has also been awarded a contract to supply six industrial gas turbines of type SGT-800 for two power plants in Las Palmas and San Pedro in the cities of San Pedro and Zarate. Siemens' customers are the two Canadian private equity companies Stoneway Capital and Araucaria Energy led by Roger Nores. They will operate the plants as independent power producers with the support of Siemens. The total order volume for Siemens is approximately USD 570 million. Siemens has also committed a USD 115 million loan to support the power plants' construction.

"These orders mark another major success for Siemens in Argentina," explains José Aparicio, Vice President for the Sales Region Latin America in Siemens' Power and Gas Division. "This is the first time we have sold a turnkey industrial power plant equipped with aeroderivative gas turbines, as well as long-term service. What's more, these four power plants will help to alleviate the power shortages in Argentina and increase the security of power supplies."

Siemens has also signed long-term service agreements for the four sites. These contracts include operation maintenance (OM) and long-term agreements for each location for a period of ten years and include operation and maintenance staff, remote monitoring, 24/7 helpdesk, overhauls, spare parts for stock and reliability guarantees. Siemens service and maintenance is centered on the company's Digital Services for Energy portfolio, combining advanced data analytics with Siemens' proven expertise to help customers fully realize the full potential of their power assets for improved reliability and profitability.

With an electrical generating capacity of 127 MW, the plant in Luján will be fitted with two SGT-A65 TR gas turbines and with two SGen5-100A-series electrical generators. The four model SGT-A65 TR turbines destined for the power plant in Matheu will provide a total electrical generating capacity of 254 megawatts (MW). The Las Palmas site will be equipped with four SGT-800 gas turbines with an electrical generating capacity of 202 MW. The other two SGT-800 gas turbines destined for the power plant in San Pedro will generate a total electrical output of 104 MW; commissioning for the four sites is scheduled for the end of 2017. All the sites have the option to be retrofitted as combined cycle power plants in the near future.

The SGT-A65 TR gas turbines are being manufactured as fast-track units at Siemens' production locations in Mount Vernon, Ohio, and in Montreal, Canada. The corresponding generators will be provided by the Siemens' manufacturing facility in Erfurt, Germany. The SGT-800 gas turbines will be manufactured in Finspang, Sweden.

NAVY TO CHRISTEN GUIDED-MISSILE DESTROYER THOMAS HUDNER

WASHINGTON - The Navy will christen the newest guided-missile destroyer, the future USS Thomas Hudner (DDG 116), April 1 at General Dynamics Bath Iron Works in Bath, Maine.

The future USS Thomas Hudner is named in honor of naval aviator and Medal of Honor recipient Thomas J. Hudner Jr., the last living Navy recipient of the Medal of Honor to have served in the Korean War. Georgea Hudner, wife of Capt. Thomas Hudner, and Barbara Miller, wife of retired Vice Adm. Michael Miller, former superintendent of the United States Naval Academy, will serve as the ship’s sponsors.

Hudner was awarded the Medal of Honor for attempting to save the life of his squadron mate, Ensign Jesse L. Brown, in the Battle of Chosin Reservoir during the Korean War. This will be the first U.S. Navy ship to bear the name Thomas Hudner.

Allison Stiller will serve as the principal speaker during the ceremony. Stiller is currently performing the duties of the assistant secretary of the Navy (research, development and acquisition). During the event, Hudner and Miller will break a bottle of sparkling wine across the bow to formally christen the ship-a time-honored Navy tradition.

Thomas Hudner will be the 66th Arleigh Burke-class destroyer, the fourth of 14 ships currently under contract for the DDG 51 program. The DDG 51 class provides advanced combat capability and survivability characteristics while minimizing procurement and lifetime support costs due to the program's maturity. DDG 51 destroyers are warships that provide multi-mission offensive and defensive capabilities. Destroyers can operate independently or as part of carrier strike groups, surface action groups, amphibious ready groups and underway replenishment groups. DDG 113 and follow-on DDGs are being built with Integrated Air and Missile Defense (IAMD) capability.

The 9,200 ton Thomas Hudner is being built by General Dynamics Bath Iron Works. The ship is 509 feet in length, has a waterline beam of 59 feet, and a navigational draft of 31 feet. Four gas turbine engines will power the ship to speeds in excess of 30 knots.
