CCGT Plants in Spain - Catalonia

Plana del Vent
Location: Tarragona
Operator: Gas Natural
Configuration: 2 X 400-MW single-shaft CCGT blocks with 9001FB gas turbines
Fuel: natural gas, diesel oil
Operation: 2007
HRSG supplier: NEM
T/G supplier: GE
EPC: GE, Tecnicas Reunidas, Ferrovial
Quick facts: This is GE’s first, fully implemented, standardized 109FB plant design and the two Frame 9FB units were the largest gas turbines manufactured to that date by GE Energy at its facility in Belfort, France. The 310t machines took 30 days to ship to the site located 130km southwest of Barcelona and required special wide-load trucks for the road portions of the trip and a special wagon for the railway portion in Spain. GE has a 12yr contract for turbine maintenance services and plant operation. The 109A HEAT steam turbine design is capable of operating at 165 bar. The project also features a DLN 2.6+ combustion system, low NO emissions technology.
