GE to supply Poland's largest gas fired power plant

GE is to supply advanced gas turbine technology for a new 450 MW, combined-cycle power plant in the city of Stalowa Wola in Poland.

The equipment is destined for what will be the largest gas-fired project in the country.

GE (NYSEGE) will provide a Frame 9F 5-series gas turbine and generator to Abengoa, the engineering, procurement and construction contractor for the Stalowa Wola project, reports Electric Light and Power online.

The facility, located about 230 kilometers southeast of Warsaw, is expected to begin commercial service in May of 2015.

The plant's carbon dioxide emissions will be about 50 percent lower than a similar-sized coal fired plant. Poland currently gets 95 percent of its electricity from coal fired plants.

Poland estimates that it needs to add about 2.4 GW of gas thermal capacity by the end of 2015 to reduce its reliance on coal power.
