Project Description

The project involves the existing Azito Thermal Power Plant (Phases I and II), its conversion from simple-cycle to combined-cycle (Phase III), and its expansion (Phase IV). The Phase III conversion included the addition of a steam turbine generator and heat recovery systems, as well as the facilities and equipment required to connect the generator to the plant's 225 kV substation. With Phase III, the project added approximately 140 megawatts (MW) of installed capacity to the grid without requiring any additional gas supply. The Phase IV expansion will include the addition of a gas turbine and a steam turbine with air-cooled condenser along with a new substation to allow connection at either 225kv or 400 kv. The Phase IV will add 253 MW of capacity to the existing plant for a total plant installed capacity of approximately 680 MW (710 MW after the completion in 2019 of the upgrade of the existing phase I and II gas turbines to MXL2 blading). The project includes the upgrade of the existing 225kV substation as well as a new 400kV substation, to make sure the power generated from the full CC plant can be evacuated at either 225 kV or 400kV voltage level.
