After commissioning the total output of the station was increased up to 900 MW, thermal output – up to 791 MW. The combined cycle power unit was built on the base of PGU-450 plant. It was designed around two GTE-160 gas turbine plants, heat-recovery steam generators, steam turbine and electric generators manufactured and delivered by Power Machines JSC (Saint-Petersburg). All generated power is supplied to Yantarenergo power grid.


Sveko Soyuz Engineering JSC, affiliate of Soyuz Holding, carried out technical supervision on the construction of PGU-420 combined cycle power plant. Electric output of the plant is 420 MW, thermal output – 265 MW. The plant was designed around Alstom GT-26 gas turbine equipped with synchronous electric generator, P-90 HRSG (ZiO-Podolsk).


The customer of power station is Autocenter Sigma-24 Ltd. Commissioned power station consists of two Calnetix Power Solutions ÒÀ-100 microturbine power plants with total output of 200 kW. The station is equipped with hot-water Viessmann Vitoplex 200 SX2 boiler with output of 200 kW. It provides thermal power for the center in peak load operation. The primary fuel for the equipment is natural gas. Microturbine power plants and boilers are equipped with automatic control systems ensuring designed parameters during the operation.



The project is realized under the investment program of OGK-6 for the period of 2006-2010. The new power unit rated at 330 MW was developed on the base of bubbling fluidized bed (BFB) technology. General designer of the project is Rostovteploelectroproject (affiliate of Yuzhny engineering center of power industry JSC). At present 85 % of the works are carried out.


Two additional GE Energy MS5001 gas turbine power plants each rated at 26.8 MW were installed on the station. Two similar power plants are in operation on the site since 2004. The primary fuel for the station is casing-head gas from Kumkol, Yuzhny Kumkol and severny Kumkol oil fields.

The station operates in simple cycle. Generated electric power is used for the needs of field infrastructure. Excess power (around 30 MW) is supplied to national grid. At present total electric output of the station is 104 MW.

The financing of the project is accomplished at the expense of internal funds of the Consortium.


GE is supplying its ecomagination-approved Jenbacher biogas engine technology to power China’s largest ethanol production plant under construction in the city of NanYang, Henan Province. Owned by Henan Tianguan Group, China, the new ethanol production plant will produce 500,000 cubic meters of biogas per day, based on organic material from cassava1 plants.

A 36-megawatt (MW) onsite power plant featuring GE’s Jenbacher engines is being built in multiple phases to support the ethanol plant’s operations. Both new facilities are being built adjacent to the company’s existing ethanol production facility, which uses a biomass digester system to convert cassava— instead of grain 2—into ethanol in China.

For the 11-MW first phase of the new onsite power plant, GE is supplying four of its J620-biogas engine units. The gas engines will utilize the ethanol production facility’s waste methane biogas to generate renewable electricity, which Henan Tianguan Group plans to sell to the regional grid. GE’s biogas engines also will use methane gas created by the anaerobic digestion of cassava biomass to produce renewable electricity for the site.



Based on advanced technology from GE, a new combined-cycle power plant at Montoir de Bretagne in the Loire Atlantique region of western France was officially inaugurated today and is producing 435 megawatts of power, enough to serve about 450,000 French households.

The plant is owned and operated by GDF SUEZ, the French multinational energy company, and enables GDF SUEZ to provide additional electricity to the South Brittany region, especially during peak demand periods such as the winter months.

The new combined-cycle facility features a GE 109FB combined-cycle system including a Frame 9FB gas turbine, a high efficiency advanced technology steam turbine and associated generators.
