Alstom bags 450 MW CHP order for Cologne

Alstom has landed a turnkey construction order for a 450 MW combined heat and power (CHP) plant in Cologne, Germany.

RheinEnergie has also awarded Alstom a 15-year service agreement for the gas-fired combined-cycle plant, bringing the utility’s investment in the project up to about €350m ($460m).

CologneThe Niehl 3 CHP power plant will be based on Alstom’s gas-fired KA26 combined-cycle plant design. The project includes the delivery of one GT26 gas turbine, one steam turbine, the turbo-generator, heat recovery steam generator and district heaters as well as power plant control systems.

Commissioning of the power plant is scheduled for 2016.

With an overall efficiency near 85%, the plant will be among the world’s most efficient, according to Alstom.

Niehl 3’s thermal output of 265 MW will be enough to supply 50,000 homes. Electricity from the plant will feed local and European grids.

In Cologne, RheinEnergie produces electricity and district heating from natural gas at four sites. All the city’s district heating comes from the utility’s plants.

The new power plant is part of Germany’s energiewende energy turnaround programme, which includes building highly efficient combined heat and power (CHP) plants.
