As the Republic of Cyprus eyes a system of cleaner, more efficient and less costly energy production, Cyfield Construction Ltd., one of the leading construction companies in Cyprus, and Siemens Energy are working together to support the island’s much-anticipated transition toward decarbonization moving from expensive, environmentally unfriendly heavy fuel oil to natural gas. As part of this transition, Cyfield has chosen Siemens Energy to supply technology and long-term service for the 260-megawatt (MW) Cyfield Mari combined-cycle power plant. Three SGT-800 gas turbines will operate in a 3x1 combined-cycle configuration. With Siemens Energy’s latest advanced SGT-800 technology, the plant will achieve the highest efficiency levels in this power plant range and the expected carbon dioxide emissions are estimated to be more than 50% lower than the average current emissions of electricity production in Cyprus.
Siemens Energy is one of the world’s leading energy technology companies. The company works with its customers and partners on energy systems for the future, thus supporting the transition to a more sustainable world. With its portfolio of products, solutions and services, Siemens Energy covers almost the entire energy value chain – from power generation and transmission to storage. The portfolio includes conventional and renewable energy technology, such as gas and steam turbines, hybrid power plants operated with hydrogen, and power generators and transformers. More than 50 percent of the portfolio has already been decarbonized. A majority stake in the listed company Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy (SGRE) makes Siemens Energy a global market leader for renewable energies. An estimated one-sixth of the electricity generated worldwide is based on technologies from Siemens Energy. Siemens Energy employs more than 90,000 people worldwide in more than 90 countries and generated revenue of around €27.5 billion in fiscal year 2020. www.siemens-energy.com.
