Flexibility and commercial viability

Under the current market conditions, the economic viability of many European CCGT plants is dependent on district heat recovery.

See how we improved economic flexibility of a 400 MW CCGT single-shaft unit by maximizing district heating production. Learn about the process challenges faced, from the original concept idea through to final commissioning, all in close operation with the third party plant operator. Our steam turbine bypass operation improved not only flexibility but also commercial viability by optimizing power/heat production share, helping this plant to stay afloat in a competitive market.

Initial heat recovery output
