Substantial CO₂ emissions savings through coal-to-gas shift in the energy intensive pulp and paper industry
In response to China's coal-to-gas policy, Shanghai Orient Champion Paper Co, Ltd. decided to start its own power generation and switch from coal to gas. By being the first operator of the SGT-300 gas turbine in China, they created a new benchmark for the Chinese paper market.
2# SGT-300 providing 15,8 MW of energy to generate on-site electricity and steam
By shifting from coal to gas, Shanghai Orient Champion Paper has reduced its carbon dioxide emissions by 60%
Massive decrease in energy consumption with significant electricity cost reduction by installing the SGT-300 gas turbine: 24% less energy consumption and 20% energy cost savings per year
Shanghai Orient Champion Paper now also has the possibility to sell excess power to the grid
First black-start battery storage project for power generation in the US
Siemens Energy will design, build and commission a black-start system at Clearway’s Marsh Landing Generating Station near Antioch, California. Black-start capabilities will allow the station to restart the flow of electricity to the facility’s auxiliary systems without the support of an external power supply in the case of an outage or blackout situation. A customized battery energy storage system (“BESS”) can support up to three attempts to restart a unit at Marsh Landing within one hour.
The project will not only help to restore power quickly in the event of an outage, but also reduce emissions over traditional back-up systems. It will also improve grid reliability in the Bay Area.
Unlike conventional emergency power systems that use diesel generators or small industrial turbines running on fossil fuels, the BESS-based black-start system works in a climate-neutral way to start one of the power plant's four combustion turbine generator units.
Decarbonizing transportation - The Haru Oni project uses Chile’s strong winds in the Magallanes region to generate climate-neutral e-fuel from water, wind energy and CO₂ captured from the air.
Siemens Energy, alongside several international companies, is developing and implementing the world’s first integrated and commercial large-scale hydrogen plant for the production of climate neutral e-fuel.
In the pilot phase, e-Methanol production will initially reach around 750.000 liters per year by 2022. Part of the e-Methanol will be converted to e-Gasoline (130.000 liters per year). In two steps, capacity is planned to be increased to 55 million liters e-Gasoline per year by 2024 and to over 550 million liters per year by 2026. That's enough fuel for over one million people to drive their cars climate-neutral for nearly a year.
The transport and industry sectors are together responsible for 45% of the world’s CO₂-emissions. Synthetic fuel is a liquid energy carrier that emits about 90% less than the fossil counterpart. Therefore, these e-fuels, which make good use of natural resources, will be a big step towards the decarbonization of the transport sector.
The Middle East’s first solar-driven hydrogen electrolysis facility in Dubai
In the United Arab Emirates, where solar energy is abundant, Siemens Energy, the Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) and Expo 2020 Dubai have collaborated to establish the region’s first solar-powered green hydrogen plant at the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park in Dubai. The UAE plans to increase the contribution of clean energy in the country’s total energy mix from 25 percent to 50 percent by 2050.

Grid stability project to foster energy security and lower emissions
The Egyptian Electricity Transmission Company and the Sudanese Electricity Transmission Company have commissioned Siemens Energy to build stations in Sudan to stabilize the grid and ensure a reliable flow of power from Egypt to Sudan. Siemens Energy’s Static Synchronous Compensator (STATCOM) automatically regulates transmission variations according to grid conditions and enables Egypt’s power export.
Cross-border interconnection projects are set to shape the future of the power industry and transmission infrastructure.
The grid solution will strengthen and stabilize the power grid by providing reactive power compensation and dynamic voltage support.
The project promotes electricity supply, economic growth, sustainable power generation and the reduction of CO2 emissions.
Low-emission solutions for largest LNG project in Africa
CCS JV (a joint venture between Saipem and McDermott) has selected Siemens Energy to supply emissions-reducing power generation equipment and boil-off gas compressors for the Mozambique LNG Project on Africa’s East Coast. The project will play a key role in meeting the increasing demand for energy in the Asia-Pacific, Middle East, and Indian sub-continent markets.
Siemens Energy’s SGT-800 industrial gas turbine is ideally suited for low-emissions onsite power generation, particularly in LNG applications, where reliability and efficiency are critical. A key feature of the centrifugal compressors for boil-off gas service is the inlet guide vane system. It allows the optimization of power consumption according to changes in operational parameters such as inlet temperature and outlet pressure.
The 54 MW SGT-800 turbine selected for this project has a gross efficiency of 39%. It is equipped with a robust, dry low-emission combustion system that enables world-class emission performance over a wide load range.
