The gas fired cogeneration facility located in Borger, Texas, provides electric capacity and energy to the local power grid.

As per the terms of the agreement, the company will provide scheduled maintenance, program management, spare parts and performance monitoring services at the plant over the next 10 years.

The contract will also enable Siemens and the Blackhawk plant to take advantage of the hardware designed to extend scheduled inspection intervals on the two W501D5A (now named SGT6-3000E) combustion turbines at the facility.

The exhaust produced from the two Siemens W501D5A gas turbines is directed to HRSGs, where the thermal energy in the exhaust
gases is recovered to generate steam. The high pressure steam is exported to an adjoining petroleum refining complex.

Siemens Energy North America region Fossil Marketing & Implementation Service head Rick Mould said, "Siemens has been servicing the two W501D5A turbines at Blackhawk since 2003 and we are committed to helping this facility continue to provide reliable energy to its customers for years to come."
