General Electric (GE) has won an equipment supply contract for the project for the construction of the new 430 MW Iernut power plan, on a tender published by the contractors – a consortium of Spanish Duro Felguera and Romanian Romelectro.
The plant will feature four of GE’s 6F.03 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 in 2014. GE technology is expected to increase the plant’s gross efficiency to 56.42 %, which is an increase of 18 %, and reduce CO2 emissions by 38 % 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.
