Decarbonizing is not only prudent — it’s profitable

Natural gas power plants will continue to be the backbone of the energy sector for the foreseeable future. But as more renewables enter the grid and their technologies become increasingly cheaper, fossil-based energy companies must lower volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions and reduce costs to maintain value through the energy transition. 

 

Siemens is your partner in decarbonization and performance optimization. For years, we have been committed to advancing energy-efficient, resource-saving technologies to increase our customers’ competitiveness and combat climate change. With the help of our in-depth expertise and state-of-the-art products and services, you can achieve significant energy savings, slash production costs, and grow your profitability.

We were able to cut maintenance costs by up to 16 percent, while extending maintenance intervals by as much as 30 percent, so we could generate more electricity and reduce life cycle costs.

INCREASE ENERGY SAVINGS

Investments into Low-Carbon Technologies are Paying Off

When Kansas City Power & Light (KCP&L) wanted to boost operating efficiency and reduce losses at their La Cygne natural gas power plant, they worked with Siemens to install improved combustion optimization technology at one of their units. The project used Siemens SPPA-T3000 software-based combustion optimization solutions to monitor existing equipment and systems and identify opportunities for improvement. The result was significant NOx reductions, greater efficiency, and higher profits.
REDUCE OPERATION & MANTAIN COSTS

Maximize Performance & Profitability

The United Arab Emirates has one of the fastest growing energy demands in the world. To ensure millions of people have access to reliable and affordable power, the Shuweihat S2 Operation and Maintenance Company (S2O&M) turned to Siemens to support their combined-cycle power and water plant in Abu Dhabi. With our global Operation and Maintenance (O&M) fleet experience and Omnivise Digital Services portfolio, the plant extended maintenance intervals, reduced the risk of unplanned downtime, and increased profitability.

The Egypt Megaproject

See how Siemens optimized operations and maintenance of the world’s largest combined-cycle power plants to boost Egypt’s power generation by over 40% in only 27.5 months. 

We contracted with Siemens to ensure the quality of power generation and to reduce costs in terms of maintenance and operation.

EMBRACE DIGITALIZATION

Reshape Your Business to be More Sustainable & Efficient

The fossil facilities that continue to operate in today’s environment find that traditional roleshave been transformed. The old days of operating for years as a basel oad or peaking plant are gone. Digitalization is a critical enabler of positive change – allowing operators to chart a path through ongoing challenges and emerge better and stronger.

The Gain in Spain: Over 0.8% Plant Efficiency Boost From Digital Optimization

Endesa, the leading electricity utility in Spain, supplies power to more than 21 million customers. With an affordable digital upgrade package from Siemens, Endesa improved efficiency and output levels, leading to a higher return on investment (RoI) without extensive or expensive hardware modifications.
