VGV Actuator selected by Siemens for gas turbine SGT-400
Press Release (January, 2014)
HEINZMANN are pleased to announce that Siemens have selected the VGV Variable Guide Vane Actuator for use in production of the core engine of the gas turbine SGT-400. The actuator is part of the portfolio of Heinzmann UK Ltd., a member of the corporate group which specialises in controls for turbines of all types and sizes. It has been approved by Siemens after extensive development. Heinzmann UK has reacted to the customer’s needs by working closely with the client to achieve a solution that was cost effective and technically compatible with the existing core engine design.
The VGV has an advantage over competitors’ equivalent units as it is purely electric; hydraulics and pneumatics are no longer required. Serial production has begun of 50 per annum. Development is now taking place for a similar smaller unit for the Siemens SGT-100 gas turbine's core engine.
