Panda Power Funds and Siemens Energy. dedicated the Panda Temple Power Project in Temple, Texas. Siemens Energy supplied the natural-gas-fired Combined Cycle Power Plant (CCPP) in consortium with its partner, Bechtel. The multi-shaft plant is a Flex-Plant configuration, with a gross installed electrical capacity of 758 megawatts (MW). Flex-Plant CCPPs offer high efficiency and operational flexibility, providing the right solution for any duty service. Innovative design features are incorporated to enable fast start, and fast ramping up and down across a large operating window from low plant turn-down to high plant output with CO emissions less than 10ppm, and Nitrogen Oxide (NOx) emissions less than 2.0ppm. The generating station will be able to supply the power needs of approximately 750,000 homes in the Central and North Texas regions.

The natural-gas-fired plant is located at the South Temple Industrial Park in Temple, Texas. Siemens provided the thermodynamic cycle design and Power Island engineering, two SGT6-5000F gas turbines, one SST6-5000 steam turbine, two SGen6-1000A generators, one SGen6-2000H generator, the SPPA-T3000 instrumentation and control system as well as two Benson heavy duct-fired heat recovery steam generators (manufactured by NEM USA Corp) and other key cycle components. A long-term service agreement is also in place for the main generation components. Bechtel was responsible for the balance of the plant engineering, overall plant construction, procurement, and led the commissioning of the facility. The gas turbines for this project are equipped with Shaping Power, a feature which enables higher power output on higher temperature days.

"Temple was our very first project working with Siemens, and we made the right choice," said Todd Carter, Senior Partner and President of Panda Power Funds. "We are impressed with their state of the art technological power plant solutions and service."
