Israeli plant’s power requirements met by cogeneration

DSW, a subsidiary of Israeli Chemicals (ICL) is to build a new $320m, 250 MW combined cycle cogeneration power plant in southern Israel.

The dual fired power plant will replace the current diesel fired plant at the site and will employ a gas turbine delivered by Siemens, which can also be powered by light fuel oil

ICL Fertilisers CEO Dani Chen says the construction of the new power plant will secure the company's long-term energy needs.

"The plant's use of a combined cycle cogeneration architecture utilising a Siemens gas-fired turbine will enable us to generate steam and electricity at exceptionally high efficiency, thereby lowering its cost while enhancing its environmental profile," added Chen, as reported in Energy Business Review.

The new facility will produce 330 tons of steam per hour and would address the power requirements of ICL's production plants when it is operational in 2015.
