The NEA report estimated that OCGT
profitability would drop by more than 80 percent when wind power reached a third of installed capacity, while the profits of even least-impacted nuclear power would fall by more than half.
The Company earns full capacity payments (CPs), so long as its OCGT
meet the operating parameters specified in the PPA.
In another project, ABB will supply a control system and a 400 kV substation for the grid connection of the 1,000 MW Erbil OCGT
plant, which will be converted to a combined cycle gas turbine plant by extending it with heat recovery steam generators and two steam turbines, boosting output by 470 MW.
The latest initiative in this direction has been the Rusayl Project, again a Gas OCGT
type, with an output of 684MW with Tractbel, in 2007.
The Burgan facility will address South Africas growing need for greater security of supply that will result from expanded strategic stock storage and emergency import capacity, possibly addressing the greater use of Eskom's Western Cape Ankerlig OCGT
Project Description : Mass Global Energy Sulaymaniah Limited (the Company ) was established for the ownership and operation of the 1000 Megawatt ( MW ) open-cycle gas-fired ( OCGT
) Sulaymaniah independent power plant ( IPP ), with an ongoing 500MW steam turbine expansion to combined cycle ( CCGT ), located in Sulaymaniah in the Kurdish Region of Iraq ( KRI ).
Acting CEO Collin Eskom was looking to convert its OCGT
plants to operate on gas as well as purchase gas-fired energy from Mozambique.
For another project, ABB will provide a state-of-the-art control system and a 400kV substation for the grid connection of 1,000MW Erbil OCGT
plant, which will be converted to a CCGT (combined cycle gas turbine) plant by widening it with heat recovery steam generators and two steam turbines, improving output by 470MW.
