A 155 MW steam turbine manufactured by Doosan Škoda will be installed at a new power plant in Warsaw.

The two-core DST-S10 turbine will become part of a newly-installed combined gas-steam cycle, increasing the Żerań CCPP plant’s capacity by 80 percent. Czech-based Doosan Škoda also will supply the generator and all related operational equipment.

The consortium established by Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems Europe and Polimex-Mostostal is building the combined cycle combination. The Żerań CCPP’s new total output capacity will reach up to 490 MW.

The assembly of the turbine set should begin next month. Completion is expected by 2020.

Engineers from Doosan Škoda Power will supervise the assembly and subsequent operation launch on site. Aside from the Żerań power plant, the company has also supplied turbines for operation in Zabrzeg, Płock, Tychy and Stalowa Wola, Poland.
