Rolls-Royce Trents for Hungary
Rolls-Royce will supply two Trent 60 gas turbines for a new power station near Budapest, Hungary. The contract increases the number of power stations in service or in development in Central and Eastern Europe using the Trent to 18. The latest order for Hungary is for Trent 60 WLE dual fuel gas turbines, to be installed as part of contract won by U.K.-based Centrax Gas Turbines from Bakonyi Kombiciklus Eromuepito es Fejleszto Kft (BKCE). They will be installed at the existing Bakonyi power station in Ajka, west of Budapest, near Lake Balaton. The site currently houses a power plant that produces between 40 and 60 MW, using a mixture of coal and biomass fuels. The two gas-fuelled Trent sets will provide an additional 116 MW to the local region after installation and commissioning in 2010. They will also enhance the power grid by providing stability at times of peak demand, Rolls-Royce said.
