General Electric to provide turbine technology for the new combined-cycle power plant in Iernut

General Electric (GE) has been awarded an order from the consortium Duro Felguera (DF Energy) - Romelectro for core technology in a new combined-cycle power plant from Romgaz in Iernut, Romania.

2017-06-27 10:31:25

With a planned installed generation capacity of 430 megawatts (MW), the Iernut project is South Eastern Europe's largest gas project in five years, and GE's technology will be capable of generating the equivalent power needed to supply one million average Romanian households. In addition, the project is Romania's largest public investment in conventional power in 20 years with a total investment of 268 million Euro from Romgaz.

The plant will feature four of GE's gas turbines, two steam turbines and four heat recovery steam generators (HRSG) as part of expanded scope solutions from GE's portfolio following the acquisition of the former Alstom Power business. GE technology is expected to increase the plant's gross efficiency to 56.42 per cent - an increase of 18 percentage points - and reduce CO2 emissions by 38 per cent compared to the current levels.

The new combined-cycle power plant will be built within the existing gas-fired power plant site. Work will commence later in 2017, and the new plant is expected to replace the existing plant upon completion in 2019.
