ABB wins US$ 170 million turnkey order for GT26 combined-cycle power plant in U. K

Independent power producer orders advanced high-efficiency, low-emission gas turbine for London plant

Zurich, Switzerland, January 15, 1998 - ABB, the global electrical engineering Group, has been awarded a turnkey contract to build a 400-megawatt combined-cycle power plant in the United Kingdom for Enfield Energy Centre Ltd, an independent power producer. The value of the contract is about US$ 170 million. Construction is scheduled to begin early this year and to be completed by the end of 1999.

The power plant will be located in Enfield, just 20 kilometers north of the center of London. The close proximity to London’s 7 million inhabitants means that the power plant has to meet strict emission and noise requirements. To handle these needs and the plant’s efficiency targets, ABB is supplying a GT26 gas turbine that uses advanced sequential combustion technology to achieve high efficiency while reducing emissions. ABB will also supply a generator for the gas turbine, as well as a steam turbine and heat recovery steam generator, and will install the power plant control system and the balance of plant equipment.
