Siemens commissions new power plant in Michigan

USA, Michigan: Siemens and Holland Board of Public Works have commissioned Holland Energy Park in the city of Holland, Michigan – a modern and efficient natural gas-fuelled combined cycle power plant.

For the project, Siemens supplied low- and medium-voltage electrical equipment and power transformers, as well as two gas turbines, one steam turbine, and a long-term service contract, the company stated in a press release.

The new plant will generate approximately 125 MW of electricity in summer and 145 MW in winter.

Holland Energy Park will harness cleaner-burning natural gas, which is expected to reduce carbon emissions by about half.
