Alstom and ESB inaugurate Aghada, Ireland’s highest efficiency Combined Cycle Power Plant (CCPP)

The new plant will generate sufficient power to provide electricity to around 500,000 homes.

The 435 MW CCPP plant, built by global power engineering company, Alstom, for owner Electricity Supply Board (ESB) is the second Alstom GT26 gas turbine powered plant to be designed, engineered and built by Alstom in Ireland following the opening of the Synergen plant at Ringsend in Dublin in 2002.

Using Alstom’s GT26 gas turbine the low-NOx Environmental (EV) burner can produce power at 59 per cent net efficiency and is claimed as the best performing technology for a combined cycle plant in this class.

Over 140 guests from across Ireland and Europe attended the ceremony hosted by Lochlann Quinn, ESB Chairman. Senior representatives from Alstom included Niall Gleeson, Alstom’s Ireland Country President, and Gregor Gnaedig, Vice President, Regional Execution Centre, Alstom Power.

After the official welcome and opening speeches guests went on to tour the new plant which provides ESB with the latest in gas fired power generation technology. The facility is part of ESB’s programme to replace existing power stations with more modern, environmentally friendly power generation with lower emissions.

Alstom Thermal Services will manage the plants two-year warranty period for customer ESB as well as undertake a 12 year Long Term Service Agreement (LTSA) to provide technical services for the plants gas/steam turbines and generator.
