Ansaldo gas turbine for combined-cycle plant in Italy
Ansaldo Energia has been awarded from Gruppo Arvedi a contract for the supply and refurbishment of the new combined cycle plant in Servola, Trieste, Italy.
The contract includes an AE64.3A gas turbine, equipped with the latest generation technologies already validated to guarantee high efficiency, operational flexibility and low emissions. Also included is the Ansaldo Energia Plant Optimizer management system.
The plant in combined-cycle configuration will have a power output of 120 MW and is expected to be operational by the end of 2021.
Gruppo Arvedi is one of the main European steel companies, reporting a consolidated turnover of €2.9 billion in 2019 and employing 3,600 people.
With this investment, the Arvedi Group enters the Italian Capacity Market for electricity supply, whose implementation decree was approved by the Italian Ministry of Economic Development in June 2019. The Capacity Market, in line with the situation in other European countries, aims to ensure the adequacy and safety of the national electricity system in the presence of a strong renewable component - non-dispatchable by its very nature - by encouraging investments in efficient, low-polluting and flexible plants.
Ansaldo Energia reported that the proposed solution chosen by the customer is able to ensure full compliance with the most stringent regulations on environmental impact.
