Siemens’ technology for IGCC project in the U.S.

By Gerald Ondrey |

Siemens Energy (Erlangen, Germany; www.siemens.com) has been awarded a Front End Engineering Design (FEED) contract by Summit Texas Clean Energy LLC to provide coal gasification and power block technology for the Texas Clean Energy Project (TCEP). The new polygeneration IGCC project will use coal as its feedstock. With a gross capacity of 400 megawatt (MWe), the plant will also produce urea for the U.S. fertilizer market. With a carbon capture rate of 90%, the plant will have one of the highest carbon capture rates of any IGCC plant in the world. The CO2 will be used for enhanced oil recovery in the West Texas area. Siemens will be working with Fluor Corp. (Irvine, Tex.; www.fluor.com) and Linde (Munich, Germany; www.linde.com) during the project’s FEED. This project received a $350 million award under the U.S. Department of Energy’s Clean Coal Power Initiative (CCPI) — Round 3 to demonstrate the commercial integration of large-scale IGCC with CO2 capture and geologic storage.  The Texas Clean Energy Project will be located in Penwell, near Odessa, Texas. Siemens will deliver the gasification island technology, which will include two SFG-500 gasifiers. The power block will be based on an SGT6-5000F gas turbine…
