Consortium wins $1bn coal-fired equipment contract in Poland

Polish state-owned PGE has awarded a $1bn contract to extend the 2000 MW Turow coal-fired power plant in the southwest of the country.

The work awarded to a Ferrovial-led consortium will see the design and construction of a new 450 MW power block.
Apart from Ferrovial Agroman's Polish subsidiary, Budimex, the consortium also includes Hitachi Power and Técnicas Reunidas.

Budimex will primarily assemble the control and measurement equipment, construct the cooling tower, the ash and slag removal system, and also install piping and ancillary thermal and mechanical equipment.

The work at the plant, which is now over 52 years old, is expected to take four and half years to complete.
