UZBEKISTAN MODERNIZES MAJOR POWER PLANTS
Wednesday, September 14, 2016
TASHKENT, Uzbekhistan -- On the eve of the 25th anniversary of Uzbekistan’s independence, the Uzbek power industry completed two large-scale investment projects — the launch of a new combined-cycle unit at the Talimarjan thermal electric power plant (TPP) and the first trial run of a new power unit in the Angren TPP, the Jahon information agency reported.

Uzbekistan has long been pursuing the policy of modernization of its electric power system.

On the eve of Independence Day, the Talimarjan TPP launched a new, second 450 MW combined-cycle gas turbine (CCGT).

Previously, the plant produced 540 million kWh of electricity per month, while the commissioning of the new generating unit at full capacity will bring the power generation up to 1 billion kWh. The launch of the third CCGT is scheduled for the end of 2016. As a result, the Talimarjan TPP will annually produce an additional 7.2 billion kWh of electricity.

The consortium of South Korean companies Hyundai Engineering and Construction and Daewoo International Consortium was the project’s general contractor. Uzbekistan signed a contract for the turnkey construction of two CCGTs totaling $861.7 million. The project was financed through loans from the Asian Development Bank, Japan International Cooperation Agency, and the Fund for Reconstruction and Development of Uzbekistan.

Late in August, Uzbekenergo Company carried out the first trial run of the new power unit at the Angren TPP.

It will have a capacity of 130-150 MW with heat extraction for burning high-ash coal.

The power unit will annually supply consumers with 840 million kWh of electricity. Coupled with the existing TPP capacity, it should total 1.05 billion kWh, providing an uninterrupted electricity and heat supply to industrial enterprises and residents in the city of Angren and neighboring regions.

Concluded with China Harbin Electric International Company Limited as the general contractor, the turnkey contract for the Angren TPP modernization exceeded $226 million.

SIEMENS TO SHOWCASE NEW ONSHORE WIND TURBINES AND SERVICE INNOVATION
Wednesday, September 14, 2016
HAMBURG, Germany - Siemens will showcase various innovations designed to address the challenges of the energy transition at the Wind Energy 2016 trade show. From wind energy generation under different conditions to grid access and storage. From September 27 to 30, the company will be presenting its latest developments at its 360-square- meter booth B6.362 in Hall 6 at the world's leading expo for wind energy in Hamburg. Siemens is appearing under the motto: "Smart solutions every step of the way". New products to be launched include a series of new onshore wind turbines and a new modular service concept for individual demands.

"In our role as a large player in the wind industry we see the combined WindEnergy Hamburg and Wind Europe Conference as the key global forum for innovation and progress in our technology," said Siemens Wind Power CEO Markus Tacke. "We are focused on reducing costs with cutting edge technology to make wind energy cost competitive in different markets and to fit the various needs and challenges facing our customers today. In our presentations we will give visitors and guests exciting insights into our latest developments in turbine technology, wind equipment, grid access, service solutions and financing."

The global energy landscape is going through a period of rapid and fundamental change, driven largely by new technologies, increasing electricity demand and the desire to reduce dependence on fossil fuels. At WindEnergy Hamburg Siemens will showcase not only breadth of existing products and solutions for the entire value chain of wind energy projects but also introduce its innovations in wind service. This includes a new approach to manage blade integrity in the field and responding to the challenge of leading edge erosion. Advanced data-driven services will also be highlighted within Siemens' Digital Services for Energy offerings as the company looks to help customers unlock the secrets of big data for improved performance and cost reductions.

In addition to product presentations at the trade show, Siemens experts will talk about industry-wide topics at the Wind Europe Conference. Markus Tacke, CEO of Siemens Wind Power and Renewables Division will be a panelist at the "Business Meets Policy" session on Tuesday, September 27, on the future of wind energy in Europe. Advisory Specialist Aidan Cronin will chair the Research & Innovation (R&I) panels on the same day focusing on the relationship between the digital economy and wind as well as EU R&I spending. In the "Optimizing O&M" offshore panel on Thursday, September 29, Rene Wigmans, Head of Siemens Maritime & Aviation Solutions, will provide an assessment of how the Siemens' Service Operation Vessels (SOVs) performed in their first year of operation and how the SOVs have managed to reduce LCoE for offshore wind projects. On the panel "Component Reliability and Diagnostics", also on September 29, Henrik Pedersen, Head of Model Based Diagnostics, will outline how production losses can be reduced through early-stage detection of turbine defects to enhance productivity of wind investments.
