NEW DELHI - German engineering company Siemens AG on Tuesday landed an order worth more than EUR 400 million to establish a 1,100 megawatt power plant in the western Indian state of Gujarat.

The first unit of the combined-cycle, gas-fired Sugen power project at Akhankhol in Surat, will be commissioned in 2007 for Torrent Power Generation Limited.

"This order will provide a boost to Siemens power generation business in India and we look forward more actively in this segment in future," J. Schubert, Managing Director of Siemens Ltd said.

The project consists of three single-shaft modules and includes gas turbines, steam turbines, generators and accessories. Siemens would also supply the plant's electrical systems, a statement said.
