Ansaldo Supplying Gas Turbine For Polish Facility

21 December 2020

Ansaldo Energia will supply an 80 MW AE64.3 gas turbine and take care of its related maintenance contract for a value of approximately €50 million from the customer Synthos, a Polish chemical company leader in the production of rubbers and polymers.

The turbine, being a part of the CCGT unit, will be installed at the Oswiecim plant, replacing an old coal boiler. When in operation, it will guarantee the production of electricity and process steam required by the plant as well as heat for local district heating. The company said the contract reflects the new Polish capacity market, but it fits, above all, in the context of the European Union Coal Phase Out, which provides as a condition to remain within the Paris Climate Agreement the shutdown of at least a quarter of the coal plants by the end of 2020 and another 47% by 2025.

Ansaldo Energia, already present with its gas turbines on the Polish market of cogeneration plants, was selected for its adaptability to the local market requirements and, in particular, for the reliability of its AE64.3 gas turbine, one of the qualifying factors of our supply and an essential one to avoid production losses of the plant due to interruptions in steam production.
