Siemen’s Built Hungarian Power Plant Inaugurated
The Gönyü combined cycle power plant in Hungary was inaugurated on June 27. The plant, built by Siemens Energy for E.ON on a turnkey basis, started commercial operation on May 12.
The plant is located in northwest Hungary in the vicinity of the city of Györ. With a net capacity of 430 MW, the plant can supply more than 600 000 households with electricity. In addition to turnkey erection, Siemens supplied the main components, which include an SGT5-4000F gas turbine, an SST5-5000 steam turbine, an SGEN 5-3000W generator, and the entire electrical and I&C equipment. The natural-gas-fired power plant is of single-shaft design with the main components arranged on a single line of shafting.
The plant, which has an efficiency rating of more than 59%, as well as low nitrogen oxide emissions, is also characterized by high operating flexibility, short startup and fast cycling capability, Siemens said.
