GREENVILLE, S.C., July 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — NEM USA has been awarded the contract for the supply of two cutting-edge Benson heat recovery steam generators (HRSGs) for the advanced Panda Temple Power Project in Temple, Texas. Siemens selected NEM for this contract to combine the high efficiencies of the NEM HRSGs and Siemens gas turbines resulting in a power plant which will be among the cleanest fossil-fueled plants in the U.S.A.
