GE to supply HA combined cycle units to Dolna Odra

15 April 2020

GE has been contracted to supply two high-efficiency and low emission power units to be constructed by a consortium at the Polska Grupa Energetyczna Górnictwo i Energetyka Konwencjonalna’s (PGE) Dolna Odra power plant in the Western Pomerania region of Poland. The order will include two GE 9HA.01 gas turbines, along with two STF-D650 steam turbines, two generators and two heat recovery steam generators providing up to 1.4 GWe. The order will add to existing grid stabilisation, which has a large input currently from onshore and offshore wind farms. 

“PGE's investment {in the gas fired Dolna Odra] is our contribution to preparing the Polish power system for further development of renewable energy, in particular wind energy," said Wojciech Dabrowski, president of the PGE management board.

PGE’s investment in modern gas-fired power units will also enable the plant to meet regional environmental standards. On commissioning in 2023, the new plant is expected to reduce CO2 emissions by 2-3 million tonnes per year.

The Dolna Odra plant plays a key role in the Polish national power system as the only producer for the northwestern region of the country. The plant expansion has been awarded a 17-year contract in the main power market auction, which will begin in 2024. 

The GE- led consortium building the extension includes the Polish company Polimex Mostostal, which has been awarded the contract for the engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) of the new units, together with full underground infrastructure. GE factories in Elblag and Wroclaw in Poland will also produce equipment for the project. The order also includes an additional 12-year service contract with GE.
