According to an official statement, the cabinet meeting, headed by Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, granted approval to "initiation of agreement between Russia and Pakistan on Cooperation for Construction of 600MW Natural Gas Combined Cycle
Power Plant at Jamshoro.
Al-Shahristani said Iraq and Calik Holding had agreed on two power projects, and the Al-Khairat natural gas combined cycle
power plant, the foundation of which was laid on Sunday, would start generating electricity by summer of 2012.
However, the most important technological development was the application of combustion turbines in modern natural gas combined cycle
natural gas combined cycle
power plant in Erzin Hatay, Turkey, with an operating capacity of 904 MW.
Generation of electricity using the newer natural gas combined cycle
is significantly more efficient.
The natural gas combined cycle
electric power plant will have a capacity of 850MW-900MW.
The proposal would require all new fossil fuel-based electric generation units (EGUs) to limit emissions to no more than 1,000 pounds of carbon dioxide (CO2) per megaWatthour (lb CO2/MWh) as of the date of publication of the proposed NSPS, based on the emissions expected from a natural gas combined cycle
for the construction of a 775-megawatt natural gas combined cycle
power plant, the company said in a statement on Monday.
The 920-megawatt natural gas combined cycle
plant also continues to operate safely, and the company will evaluate continued plant operations.
Energy company Duke Energy (NYSE:DUK) reported on Wednesday the start of the 620 megawatts (MW) Dan River Natural Gas Combined Cycle
Station in Rockingham County, Eden, NC.
