Contract Award- Siemens Energy – Tenaska

Siemens Energy was awarded a contract to provide coal gasification technology to the Taylorville Energy Center (TEC). The contract was awarded by Tenaska, the managing partner for the project worth $3.5 billion.

TEC will become one of the first coal gasification plants in the United States with a carbon capture and storage capability. The contract with Siemens is for four gasifiers to convert coal into natural gas. Michael Suess, CEO of Fossil Power Generation Division, said “By capturing and storing at least 50 percent of the CO2 it produces, TEC will have emissions comparable to a natural gas-fueled plant. Achieving such a dramatic reduction in emissions by a coal-fed plant is a vital step in the global effort to combat climate change. Siemens is glad to be a major contributor to this important breakthrough.”
