Based on the rich heritage of the SGT-8000H series, Siemens continues its leadership in large air-cooled gas turbines by pushing plant efficiencies beyond 63%, with a clear roadmap to even higher values. Siemens 9000HL-class has been successfully introduced to the power generation market. While the 60Hz and 50Hz pilot projects are in full swing and the first 9000HL gas turbines are being manufactured and prepared to be delivered on site, we want to give you the chance to look behind the scenes and engage with the development team. In an interactive format, the HL-class development team will present the latest status regarding performance, testing and validation, insurability, flexibility and emission reduction. Take a glimpse into the future of power generation.
