*** Siemens commissions 8.5 MW steam turbine *

Engineering and technology firm Siemens said today that it has completed the supply, installation and commissioning of an 8.5 MW steam turbine, gear box and related control panels for Kolkata-based Shakambhari Ispat & Power Ltd.

This installation is in addition to an 8 MW steam turbine that was delivered in a record time of three months, Siemens said in a statement.

"The use of efficient turbines has already reduced consumption of coal. Moreover, solutions such as Remote Diagnostic System, Combustion Optimizer and new-age control systems will definitely reduce the downtime of the plant and turn it into a more profitable unit, said Deepak Kumar Agarwal, Chairman and Managing Director, Shakambhari Ispat & Power Ltd in the statement.

Implementation of such cost-efficient solutions can lead to a gradual transformation of existing plants, helping manufacturers secure operational benefits over the long term, said Prashant Jain, Head, Power Generation Services, Siemens Ltd.
