Peak performance with gas-fired system
Heavy-duty power plants
In today's complex power market Siemens is a strong partner capable of providing you with competitive power plant solutions to improve the profitability of your business. Siemens offers both simple cycle and combined cycle power plants turnkey from a single source. Tailored for your specific needs and challenges of the market.
H-class gas turbines achieve one million operating hours
The Siemens H-class turbine has been on the market for nearly a decade and has now achieved a significant milestone by exceeding one-million fired hours of commercial operation. With 70 turbines in operation on four continents and almost 100 machines sold, the SGT-8000H is the market leader in its class and delivers a top performance that's been setting benchmarks throughout the industry.
Tailored to your needsAre you looking for a highly efficient combined cycle power plant to cover base load at reasonable cost? Or a robust simple cycle power plant that will cover peak loads under tough conditions? Siemens will develop and build the solution you need: simple and combined cycle power plants, with or without combined heat and power (CHP), flexible and sustainable. You can rely on proven technologies that will pay off throughout the entire lifetime of your power plant – technologies that set the standards in efficiency and reliability, and are fit to meet future challenges.
The next level of efficiency and performance
With our new HL-class gas turbine we are paving the way to the next level for higher power plant efficiency and performance. This evolutionary development step, derived from proven H-class technology, combines a series of new but already tested technologies. The result: A technology carrier to the next level with a combined cycle efficiency beyond 63% and a clear midterm goal of 65%. New Siemens HL-class consists of three engines: SGT5-8000HL, SGT5-9000HL and SGT6-9000HL.
The pioneering trail-blazer
With the SGT-8000H turbine series, you can build on maximum output and efficiency. Our globally installed fleet has proven itself with about 12,000 starts and more than 650,000 operating hours – with world-class availability levels. Power plants based on SGT-8000H turbines can be configured to meet a wide range of requirements:
- Single or multi-shaft applications
- With or without steam turbine
- With optional heat extraction
- Available with Flex-Plant flexibility
A high output with low electricity generation costs: Siemens high economy F-class power plants offer high power output and a world-class efficiency. Combined with a proven availability of more than 95 percent, you can concentrate on other matters and leave your power plant to pay for itself. Whether you need a single or multi-shaft application, with or without a steam turbine – you’ll get a plant that perfectly fits your needs.
In extreme temperatures and inhospitable environments: wherever robust technology is needed, Siemens E-class plants are the right choice. With a power output of up to 275 MW in 1x1 combined cycle operation and low lifecycle, they provide a reliable supply where it is most needed: in remote regions, areas with challenging climates, and in tough industrial environments.
50 percent more electricity for Egypt
In Egypt, Siemens has built three turnkey combined cycle power plants with a total capacity of 14.4 GW. They are part of a power project that is forging the country’s future. Find out more about this megaproject.

We are your reliable partner in all phases of a project: from business model design to financial closing, from technology selection to permitting, and from engineering to profitable operation – your success is our passion.
Added economic and environmental value
ValuePlus concepts: ingeniously designed and efficiently implemented
Even minor improvements can make an impact: a single optimized combined cycle warm start can save 800 GJ of energy. A clever solution that utilizes gland steam from the heat-recovery steam generation (HRSG) system makes auxiliary steam generators superfluous – and saves about €/$ 800,000 in investment costs. We know how important it is for you as a power plant operator to amortize your optimization measures quickly. That’s why we develop plant features and technologies that really matter. Curious?
