ERLANGEN, Germany -- April 04, 2013

Siemens has been awarded an order for the turnkey supply of the Panda Temple
II power plant in Temple, Texas. Following the Temple I and Sherman Power
Projects, this is the third order awarded to Siemens by the private equity
firm Panda Power Funds within less than a year. Siemens will supply the
natural-gas-fired combined-cycle power plant in consortium with its partner,
Bechtel. The plant, with a gross installed electrical capacity of 758
megawatts, will be among the cleanest fossil-fueled power stations in the
U.S.A. Once completed by the end of 2015, it will be able to supply the power
needs of approximately 750,000 homes in the Central Texas area. The order
volume including a long-term service agreement is approximately USD300

Siemens will deliver the engineered power island, including two gas turbines,
one steam turbine, three generators, the instrumentation and control system
and two heat recovery steam generators. Bechtel will be responsible for the
engineering and procurement for the balance of the plant, and the
installation, construction and commissioning of the facility.

The power station will be a Siemens Flex-Plant™ 30, which offers particularly
high efficiency and operational flexibility. Power generation can commence
within ten minutes of startup, and full base-load power production in less
than one hour. Siemens´ highly efficient and environmentally sound technology
will reduce emissions, allow rapid response to changing market conditions, and
enable added investment in intermittent renewable and zero-carbon resources.

The gas turbines, steam turbine and generators will be manufactured in the
Siemens factory in Charlotte, North Carolina.

High efficiency combined cycle power plants are part of Siemens’ Environmental
Portfolio. In fiscal 2012, revenue from the Portfolio totaled about €33
billion, making Siemens one of the world’s largest suppliers of ecofriendly
technologies. In the same period, our products and solutions enabled customers
to reduce their carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions by more than 330 million tons,
an amount equal to the total annual CO2 emissions of Berlin, Delhi, Hong Kong,
Istanbul, London, New York, Singapore and Tokyo.
