  • Siemens is making the largest gas turbine in the world. The assembly work in Berlin

  • is finished. The SGT5-8000H is leaving Berlin. Transporting the 440 ton turbine by water

  • and overland clear across Germany is a masterly achievement of logistics. The destination

  • is Irsching, over 500 kilometers away. The turbine will demonstrate its performance in

  • a year-long test run at this EON power plant on the Danube.

  • >>For now we are testing the gas turbine in open cycle, meaning, we are testing the gas

  • turbine on its own. When the test run is completed, we have to meet so called minimum criteria.

  • And once that has been achieved, then we will convert it to combined cycle operation around

  • the end of next year.

  • >>The turbine reaches its destination and is lifted into its final position. Only now

  • will the power plant begin to take shape around the five meter high turbine. The assemblers

  • hook the generator up to the The SGT5-8000H. The first performance test is ready to proceed.

  • 340 megawatts in stand-alone operation and up to 530 megawatts in combined cycle operation

  • with an efficiency rating of over 60 percent. Siemens is venturing into a whole new dimension

  • of innovative power generation.

  • >>More efficient power plants help in climate protection, regardless of whether they run

  • on coal or gas. And if we develop a technology for it here in Germany and if we use it here,

  • then these plants themselves will be the very demonstration facilities, that we can later

  • export around the world. So it's a good thing for climate protection and, of course, we

  • are happy to have a share in it.

  • >>A 750 person project team, seven years of planning and development, the performance

  • of 13 jumbo jet engines, everything is ready. The SGT5-8000H is waiting for its first firing.
