MACOGA Pressure Balanced Rubber Expansion Joints for new Gas Turbine Combined Cycle power plant in Central Europe
MACOGA has designed and successfully delivered 2 Pressure Balanced MPB-E Series and 4 MAC-FT Rubber Expansion Joints DN 1800 for a new Gas Turbine Combined Cycle (GTCC) power plant to be built in Central Europe. The new plant will not produce any sulphur oxides emissions or dust, emission of nitrogen oxides will be ten times less than the existing coal-fired blocks. Electric power efficiency of more than 57% is unprecedented in the area. The new GTCC plant will be based on Siemens F-class gas turbines technology: Combined cycle configuration: 2 x Gas Turbine Generator GTG 2 x Heat Recovery Steam Generator 1 x Steam Turbine Generator STG Total installed capacity: 841 MW Guaranteed electrical net efficiency: 57.4 % GTCC power plants produce considerably less emissions in comparison to coal plants. They do not produce any sulphur oxides emissions or dust. Emissions of nitrogen oxides are ten times lower and CO2 emissions are lower by up to 70% in comparison to the existing standard brown-coal units.
