Ansaldo Energia will build and supply the power generation equipment for a 300 MW German gas-fired facility.
The Italian firm was awarded the engineering, procurement and construction contract, on a turnkey basis, for the Irsching 6 plant in southern Bavaria. The plant will be equipped with an AE94.3A gas turbine, its generator and auxiliary systems.
The contract is part of the German project “besonderes netztechnisches Betriebsmittel -bnBm” (network reserve project) which includes tenders in four areas of southern Germany.
In January, Uniper won the contract to build the Irsching 6 plant from grid operator Tennet. Ansaldo will work with Uniper on the project.
Ansaldo Energia will be exhibiting and speaking at POWERGEN Asia in Malaysia from 3-5 September. It will also be participating in the Gas Turbine sessions at POWERGEN Europe in Paris and POWERGEN International in New Orleans.
