Ge helps Poland build efficient and clean combined cycle gas units

Ge will provide two 9ha.01 gas turbines and two stf-d650 steam turbines to dolna Odra combined cycle power plant of PGE company, so that the power plant has world-class efficiency and flexibility The project will play a key role in the transformation of Polish power system and help the rapid development of local renewable energy Dolna Odra power plant will achieve low emissions and is expected to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by about 2-3 million tons per year While meeting the most stringent environmental standards, the dolna Odra power plant with an installed capacity of 1.4 GW can meet the electricity consumption of about 1 million Polish households 2 On March 30, 2020, Baden, Switzerland - General Electric (hereinafter referred to as "Ge") announced that it had received an order from PGE of Poland to provide two 9ha.01 gas turbines and two stf-d650 steam turbines for dolna Odra, a combined cycle power plant. The total installed capacity of the project was up to 1.4 GW, which could meet the power consumption of 1 million Polish families. The power plant is located in the Pomeranian region in western Poland. At present, onshore and offshore wind power generation methods are widely used in this region. This order project will further improve the stability of the regional power grid. "PGE's investment in the transformation of dolna Odra power plant will contribute to the further development of renewable energy, especially wind energy, in Poland's power generation system." Wojciech D, chairman of PGE's management committee Browski represents. PGE's investment and planning for dolna Odra's coal to gas project will ensure the long-term stable operation of the power plant. At the same time, the emission of dolna Odra will be greatly reduced to meet local environmental standards. With the commissioning of new units in 2023, the power plant is expected to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by about 2-3 million tons per year. "For more than 70 years, we have always been committed to providing advanced energy solutions for Poland. In the future, we will continue to support customers like PGE and help them better select and implement energy projects, so as to meet customers' needs and objectives for energy security, cost and sustainable development to the greatest extent." Michael rechsteiner, vice president of Ge gas power Europe, said, "combined with GE's' turnkey 'expertise and leading combined cycle power generation technology, we will provide more flexible, reliable and sustainable power for the region in the near future." As the only power generation system supplier in Northwest Poland, dolna Odra power plant plays a key role in Poland's national power generation system. The expansion project won the power plant a 17 year contract in the auction of the main power market, which will come into force in 2024. On January 30, 2020, Polish President Andrzej Duda, US ambassador to Poland Georgette mosbacher, Polish Minister of state assets Jacek Sasin and Polish Minister of climate Micha Kurtyka, local councillors, local government representatives and power plant employees attended the project signing ceremony. Polish President Andrzej Duda said in his speech: "it is a great pleasure to witness the official launch of this project, which we have been looking forward to for a long time, which marks an important step in the modernization process of Polish power generation." Polimex mostostal, a member of the Ge led project consortium, also won the EPC (design, procurement, construction) contract for the new unit and the construction of a full set of underground infrastructure. GE's plants in Elblag and Wroclaw, Poland, will also provide technical equipment support for the project. At the same time, the order also includes a 12-year plant maintenance service agreement. GE's ha class gas turbines have won more than 100 orders worldwide with superior safety and reliability. As of the first quarter of 2020, 44 ha class power stations worldwide have been put into commercial operation, and the operation hours of units have exceeded 550000 hours. At present, Ge ha gas turbine is widely recognized in the global 50 Hz and 60 Hz markets, and has achieved the most efficient gas turbine combined cycle power station in the two markets respectively. The 9ha gas turbine suitable for 50Hz market, with its characteristics of fast response speed of power grid, strong low load operation capacity and large capacity, can provide basic load when the power generation capacity of renewable energy is insufficient, cut peak and fill valley according to its power generation capacity, and has unique advantages in improving the stability and reliability of power grid and realizing the optimal allocation of kWh cost.
