Siemens Energy has launched a new 37MW industrial gas turbine that can be employed both for power generation and as a mechanical drive.

The company said that the new SGT-750 turbine will close a gap in its industrial gas turbine portfolio, which offers a power range between 5MW and 50MW.

SGT-750 is a twin-shaft turbine and attains an efficiency level of 40% as mechanical drive.

Siemens claims that the turbine’s high exhaust energy provides for an excellent efficiency level when used in cogeneration or combined-cycle power plants, resulting in low fuel consumption and allowing CO2 emissions to be reduced.

Siemens Industrial Power Business Unit CEO Markus Tacke said that this machine will provide the customers with a product with a maximized lifetime.
