CCGT Plants in Germany - Nordrhein-Westfalen
Dormagen
Location: NW
Operator: RWE Power
Configuration: 450-MW, 2+1 CCGT block with V94.2A gas turbines CHP
Fuel: natural gas
Operation: 2000
HRSG supplier: Stork
T/G supplier: Siemens
EPC: Siemens
Quick facts: In Mar 1997, RWE announced it would build a $400mn CHP plant at Bayer’s massive chemical works. The project was a complex undertaking that included modifying an existing gas turbine to feed an existing boiler and construction of a new CHP block.  Total capacity is 560-MWe and up to 490 metric tons/hr of process steam. The new CCGT plant took 20mos to build and these were the first V94.2A machines in service. RWE also took control of an existing Bayer gas-fired CHP plant at the site.

Lausward Fortuna
Location: NW
Operator: Stadtwerke Dusseldorf AG
Configuration: 595-MW, single-shaft CCGT with SGT5-8000H gas turbine CHP
Fuel: natural gas
Operation: 2016
HRSG supplier: Siemens
T/G supplier: Siemens
EPC: Siemens
Quick facts: In Jun 2007, SWD announced plans for a 400-MW CHP unit to extend its Lausward site on the Rhine in the city's harbor area. This scheme was never finalized and it was finally abandoned in May 2010. In Jul 2012, SWD instead placed a turkey order with Siemens for a 595-MW, CCGT, CHP plant at Lausward. The order value for Lausward-F, including a LTSA, was between €400 and €500mn. The design was a follow-on to the Ulrich Hartmann demonstration CCGT block at Irsching. In Jun 2013, Statoil signed a 15yr gas supply agreement for the new project. The Fortuna block was handed over on 22 Jan 2016, 19 days ahead of schedule. During final testing, Fortuna achieved a maximum electrical net output of 603.8 MW, a new record for a CCGT plant of this type in single-shaft configuration. A new world record of around 61.5% for net thermal efficiency was also achieved. About 300 MWt will be sent into the Dusseldorf district heating system. The architects were kadawittfeldarchitektur.
