Combined cycle power plant

Siemens was commissioned to build a turnkey gas and steam turbine plant called San Gabriel, including long-term service agreements. San Gabriel will achieve a capacity of 450 megawatts (MW). The construction cost of this new power plant in Luzon has been estimated at 400 million euros. Over the next few years, it is intended to increase the power plant´s output to three blocks and 1.350 MW. San Gabriel will expand the two existing San Rita power plants (four blocks, capacity 1.000 MW, built in 2000) and San Lorenzo (two blocks, capacity 500 MW, built in 2002).

The Philippines is tracking an ambitious program to expand its power supply as the grid is struggling with undersupply and failures. That´s why San Gabriel will make an important contribution to the smooth and rapidly raising growing demand for power
