08 February 2019

Siemens has secured an order in the U.S. for the re-powering of Cooperative Energy's R.D. Morrow, Sr. Generating Station facility in Purvis, Mississippi. The customer will use Siemens' cutting-edge HL gas turbine technology to re-power the facility's existing coal-powered steam turbines. This is the third order that the company has received for its new HL-class gas turbine. The natural gas-fueled combined cycle power plant will have an installed capacity of approximately 550 MW and will supply reliable electricity to Cooperative Energy's Member cooperatives, which serve approximately 430,000 homes and businesses across the state.

Cooperative Energy will re-power one of its existing coal-fired generation units with a Siemens SGT6-9000HL gas turbine. The scope of supply also includes an SGen6-3000W generator and the SPPA-T3000 control system. Siemens has also been awarded a long-term service agreement, which will help support the gas turbine and generator's optimal operating efficiency during the life cycle of the project. The contract includes service on parts, repairs, field services, program management, and offerings from Siemens' Omnivise Digital Services portfolio, including remote monitoring and diagnostics.
