Industriepark Höchst GT 2&3
Location: HE
Operator: Infraserv GmbH & Co. Höchst KG
Configuration: 2 X 50-MW SGT-800 gas turbines CHP
Operation: 2011
T/G supplier: Siemens
Quick facts: This €70mn project was commissioned on 9 Nov 2011 by Frankfurt Mayor Petra Roth and Infraserv COO Roland Mohr In addition to electricity, the machines can produce 130mt of high pressure steam, 30mt of low pressure stream and 135mt of hot water per hour. The low pressure steam is fed into the site's supply system and used by nearby chemical and pharmaceutical manufacturers.

Irsching-4 (Ulrich Hartmann)
Location: BY
Operator: Siemens/E.ON Kraftwerke GmbH
Configuration: 578-MW, 1+1 CCGT with SGT5-8000H gas turbine
Operation: 2007-2011
HRSG: Siemens
T/G supplier: Siemens
EPC: Siemens
Quick facts: Im 2006, construction got underway on thie CCGT built around the launch SGT5-8000H machine. In mid-2009, after completing the GT testing program, Siemens added a bottoming steam cycle featuring a unique Siemens high-temperature steam turbine operating at 600°C. In May 2011, Irsching-4 went into full operation achieving a net thermal efficiency of 60.75%, reported as the highest in the world to that date. At its formal commissioning in Sep 2007, Irsching-4 was re-named Ulrich Hartmann after a former Chairman of E.ON predecessor company VIAG and later E.ON CEO.
