Our consortium with General Electric is building a combined cycle power plant for PKN ORLEN, a major Polish oil refiner and petrol retailer. The plant will be the most advanced project of its kind in the country. Its cogeneration technology will significantly enhance the efficiency of electricity and heat generation.
Designed to meet stringent environmental requirements, the plant will produce 463 MW of power through a gas turbine with a heat recovery steam generator (HRSG) and steam turbine.
SNC-Lavalin’s mandate will include the provision of all BOP equipment, including assembly of GE supplied power train. The company will also provide project management, engineering, procurement, construction, commissioning and start up services. The energy generated will be used to power PKN ORLEN’s adjacent Anwil chemical plant with the remainder sent to the Polish national grid, enhancing its overall stability and sustainability.
The project will provide Poland with a source of energy that exceeds current EU emission standards. By the end of April 2015, we have completed two million person-hours without a lost-time incident on the project.
