Siemens and the Scottish energy company SSE plc have announced they will collaborate to build the highly efficient gas-fired power station Keadby 2 in Lincolnshire. Siemens will provide a full turnkey solution for the power plant, which will include the world’s first deployment of the 50Hertz version of its SGT-9000HL gas turbine. SSE will invest 350 million Pounds in the construction of the new power station which will have a total capacity of 840 megawatts (MW) and 63% efficiency.

Construction at the site will begin this summer to deliver what will be the second SSE combined cycle power station located at Keadby. Commercial operation of Keadby 2 is scheduled for 2022 as coal power plant closures come into effect. It will provide flexible large-scale power generation to the UK grid.
