Siemens secures order for LNG-to-power complex in Latin America

01 Dec 2021

Siemens Energy has secured an order for the turnkey construction of the combined cycle power plant UTE GNA II in the integrated LNG-to-power project GNA II, located at Port of Açu, in Rio de Janeiro state.

Construction of the power plant is already ongoing. The customer is the project company Gás Natural Açu (GNA). Following the successful commissioning of GNA I in summer 2021, GNA II will be the second turnkey combined cycle power plant that Siemens Energy will build in the thermoelectric hub and will add further capacity of 1.7GW.

With a combined capacity of 3GW the two power plants will be able to provide enough electricity for the consumption of around 14 million households. The second order comes with the first application of the highly efficient HL class gas turbine in Brazil. The combined cycle plants powered by liquefied natural gas (LNG) will be the most efficient thermal power plants in Latin America. Total project amount is approximately €1bn (US$1.12bn).
