The use of Rolls-Royce engines for electrical power plants represents successful technology transfer and benefits from more than 30 years of development and billions of dollars of research.
The SGT-A65 also benefits from a long operating life of 50,000 hours (approx. 6 years). Turbines can then be switched out for a replacement in under 72 hours. The cost of this “as new” recurring operational capacity is incorporated in O&M costs.
The Siemens technology package includes comprehensive O&M and performance guarantees, resulting in maximum reliability and efficiency.
