BrightSource Energy Inc., a developer of utility-scale solar thermal power plants, has signed contracts with Siemens to purchase two steam turbine generators for use at its Ivanpah Solar Electric Generating System. BrightSource Energy has now ordered all three steam turbines to be used at its Ivanpah project.
The contract is for the supply of two 133 MW steam turbines to be used at Ivanpah's Units II and III. Last month, the company announced that it had purchased three solar receiver steam generators from Riley Power. BrightSource Energy purchased its first Siemens steam turbine generator in December 2008 to be used at Ivanpah's Unit I.
