CCGT Power Plants in the Czech and Slovak Republics
Bratislava PPC
Location: Slovakia
Operator: PPC Energy Group as
Configuration: 215-MW, 1+1 CCGT block with V94.2 gas turbine CHP
Fuel: natural gas
Operation: 1998
HRSG supplier: Tlmace
T/G supplier: Siemens
EPC: Siemens, Prvni Brnenska Strojirna Trebic
Quick facts: The Bratislava CCGT plant is the largest of its kind in Slovakia and was developed by Paroplynový Cyklus Bratislava as (PPC). The project was financed in part with a 15yr, ECU 50mn EIB loan approved in Sep 1998. The new plant was put into commercial operation in Aug 1998 replacing obsolete CHP equipment at the site. Electricity is sold to Slovenské Elektrárne, and thermal energy to local heating company Bratislavská Teplárenská for use in the eastern part of their DHS system. The plant is electrically connected to the local 110kV grid. Annual output is about 1.2 TWh of electricity and 2,600 TJ of heat.

Trmice (Usti nad Labem)
Location: Czech Republic
Operator: Dalkia Ceska Republika AS
Configuration: 70-MW, 1+1 CCGT block with 6001FA gas turbine CHP
Fuel: natural gas
Operation: 1999
HRSG supplier: Austrian Energy & Environment CZ
T/G supplier: EGT, G-A
EPC: Alstom Power sro
Quick facts: This gas turbine partially repowered an obsolete coal-fired heating plant. Heat output is 115 MWt. The installation was challenging due to restrictions imposed by the existing plant. The steel stack was erected first, then bolier parts were suspended from the top downwards. The boiler heating surfaces were transported to site in modules including the boiler flue gas duct with internal insulation. These blocks, which weighed as much as 150t, were pulled up with hydraulic jacks.

Location: Czech Republic
Operator: Sokolovská uhelná as
Configuration: 2 X 185 MW 1+1 CCGT blocks with 9001E gas turbines
Fuel: coal syngas, natural gas
Operation: 1996
HRSG supplier: Alstom
T/G supplier: EGT, GEC-Alsthom, Skoda
EPC: Brno
Quick facts: The Suas gasification plant originally started up in the 1960s for town gas production and the syngas was used for power generation starting in the mid-1990s. The plant uses the ZUV process derived from the Lurgi Day Ash technology and processes about 2,000tpd of local lignite. The Vresova complex also makes briquettes.
