Duro Felguera has carried out delivery to the customer of the Carrington combined cycle power plant in the UK. The Carrington power plant is a combined cycle of 880 MW of total power located in Trafford, Greater Manchester (UK) and consists of two units of 440MW each, running on natural gas. The plant has the capacity […]
Duro Felguera, OHL, TSK or Initec. The development of electricity generation from gas and renewable planned in the coming years as well as the intense activity in the sectors of Oil & Gas and Petrochemical have turned the Middle East into a strategic region for companies like DF, explain company sources to EnergyNews.
The Spanish companies continue their international success path. It is the case of OHL Industrial and SENER, who have joined in a consortium to build a combined cycle plant in Mexico for some 445 million euro. The plant will allow for energy supply in the north of the country following an implementation period of 30 months. This plant, with a capacity of 770MW, will operate on natural gas.
Spanish DF has signed a contract with the multinational General Electric for the implementation of a gas-fired power generation plant in Argentina, in the province of Neuquén. This project, whose amount for the Spanish company is 20.3 million euro, adds to two others that DF is currently undertaking in the South American country within the energy sector.
In a record time of just 24 months, a combined cycle plant has emerged in South Korea which has also become the power plant with the least emissions in the country. Germany's Siemens and its South Korean partner Posco Engineering & Construction have been responsible for building this 834 MW plant that will operate with a 75% of fuel.
According to a report by REE there is an installed capacity surplus of 6,000 MW in Spain and the Energy Plan 2015-2020 drafted by Industry Ministry envisages the possibility of temporarily shutting down or "hibernating" ten combined cycle power plants that would make up this total. In fact, the first on the list is Iberdrola’s Castellón plant, but will it be shut down?
A few days ago Iberdrola claimed it would be better to place their combined cycle gas power plants into hibernate because the electric system is in its moment of "greater capacity" but this will be "temporary". For the company the balance between supply and demand will happen in a period of between 4 and 8 years so the hibernating option is more advantageous than closing the plants.
The gas and combined cycle industry have future in countries like Mexico and Dominican Republic. While in Mexico, a natural gas thermal plant is under construction and a gas pipeline is about to be completed in the Morelos region to improve the country’s energy infrastructure, Dominican Republic is investing 250 million dollars in a combined cycle plant.
DF has signed a contract with the Algerian company Societé de Production de l' Electricité (SPE), a subsidiary of Sonelgaz group, for the construction of a combined cycle gas power plant in Djelfa. The cost of the project amounts to 544 million euro and the plant with 1,250 MW will be the largest power plant built by the company to date.
