Siemens Energy set to provide hydrogen-capable turbines to Nebraskan plant

Siemens Energy will provide two SGT6-5000F hydrogen-capable turbines to power Omaha Public Power District’s (OPPD) new Turtle Creek Station Peaking Plant in Papillion, Nebraska.

The simple cycle turbine facility will be used to modernise back up generation in OPPD’s fleet, which means that the plant will run only as needed to provide a resilient and reliable source of electricity for the community.

The hydrogen-capable turbines offer the ability to run on up to 30% hydrogen and biodiesel in support of future technology advancements.

In addition to this, the turbines also offer a fast start time and low emissions while also helping to rapidly stabilise transmissions system to adjust for the variable output of solar generation.
