Siemens wins transformer contract in Michigan
USA, Michigan: Siemens has won the contract to supply critical low- and medium-voltage electrical equipment and power transformers for the new Holland Energy Park combined cycle power plant in Michigan, which will replace the aging coal-fired plant.
As part of the contract, Siemens will provide three 138-13.8 kV generator step-up transformers to help provide reliable power for the Energy Park, as well as a new 63 kA type medium-voltage switchgear for the Holland Energy Park electrical infrastructure, the manufacturer states in the press release.
The new plant will use waste heat from the circulating water system for use in an expanding downtown snowmelt system.
The project is expected to be completed in February 2017.
