Siemens announces that it will be the technology partner for Panda Power
Funds’ “Hummel Station” – a new 1,124 megawatt natural-gas-fired
combined cycle power plant (CCPP) to be built in Snyder County,
Pennsylvania. Slated for operation in the first quarter of 2018, the
facility will replace the retired Sunbury coal-fired plant. The new
facility will supply power for more than one million households in large
power markets, including Philadelphia and New York City. Hummel Station
joins over 2.4 GW in the PJM Interconnection regional transmission
organization, responsible for North America’s largest transmission grid,
which serves 60 million people in 13 states and Washington, DC.

Siemens will supply the power island consisting of three SGT6-5000F gas
turbines, one SST6-5000 steam turbine, three SGen6-1000A air cooled
generators as part of the gas turbine package, one hydrogen cooled
SGen6-2000H generator as part of the steam turbine package, three NEM
DrumPlus HRSGs and the SPPA-T3000 control system for Panda Power Funds.
The gas turbines, steam turbine and generators will be manufactured at
the Siemens Charlotte Energy Hub, which is the main production facility
for Siemens 60 Hz power generation.
“We are proud to continue our successful track record with Panda Power
Funds with this modern, highly-efficient power plant. As America
continues to turn to cleaner-burning, low-cost natural gas, we are
pleased to deliver world-class power generation equipment to provide
reliable and efficient energy to major power markets in the U.S.,” said
Martin Tartibi, Senior Executive Vice President of Energy Solutions
Americas at Siemens Power and Gas Division.
“This is the seventh project that Panda has chosen to use Siemens'
advanced technology for our power projects,” said Todd Carter, senior
partner and president of Panda Power Funds. “We have a great
relationship with Siemens and look forward to working with them on the
Hummel Station project.”
Siemens Financial Services (SFS) is further supporting the project with
a $125 million equity investment. SFS’ equity stake underscores its
commitment to supporting key Siemens customers to help them realize
energy efficient projects in the U.S. To date, SFS has made a total
commitment of more than $400 million for Panda Power Funds’
energy-efficient power plants in the U.S.
“SFS is pleased to invest along with Panda in this modern energy
project, which represents our seventh project with Panda. Our investment
demonstrates Siemens’ strong commitment to advancing projects that
deliver cleaner, more environmentally-friendly energy,” said Kirk
Edelman, Head of Energy Finance at SFS.
Hummel Station is the seventh project in the U.S., and the third project
in Pennsylvania, awarded by Panda Power Funds to Siemens. Once
completed, these seven world-class power generation projects will
generate a combined 5,800 megawatts of power, which is enough to power
approximately 5 million homes. Like the nearby Patriot and Liberty
plants, Hummel Station will harness local Marcellus gas.
