Oskarshamn turbine upgrade by Siemens

18 June 2007

Siemens is to upgrade the low-pressure steam turbines at Unit 2 of the Oskarshamn (OKG2) nuclear power plant in Sweden.

OKG2, one of three boiling water reactors at the site, currently has an installed capacity of 610 MW but the upgrade, using advanced three-dimensional blading technology will increase this by more than 30 MW.

Siemens will supply the low-pressure turbines, the high-pressure feed heaters, the flash tanks, and an SPPA-T2000 instrumentation and control system.

The contract was awarded by OKG AB, a Swedish subsidiary of E.ON, and the upgrades are slated for completion in 2009.
