(Pilsen, Czech Republic, September 11, 2017) – Doosan Škoda Power has signed a contract with DONG Energy, a Denmark-based energy company, for the supply of a complete machine hall for Asnæs Power Station. The contract is valued approximately EUR 14 million, i.e. almost CZK 375 million.
“It is an absolutely unique project, for it is not only about building a power station as such but also about pushing through the two companies’ philosophy and vision of achieving cleaner energy,” discloses Eva Netušilová, the project technical manager from Doosan Škoda Power. DONG Energy has decided to phase out coal completely by 2023; in this, it will also be helped by the highly efficient turbine generator set from Doosan Škoda Power. The annual production of CO2 will be reduced by a total of 800,000 tonnes, which is equivalent to the annual production of exhaust gases from 400,000 automobiles.
The scope of the project includes the supply of an innovative double-casing extraction turbine with a generator, auxiliaries and complete equipment of the machine hall with a maximum capacity of 30 MW. “The innovative nature of the entire installation consists in its technical design that makes it possible to disconnect one of the two turbine casings, thereby providing a broad range of uses for the installation, which will generate electrical energy, supply process steam to the neighbouring pharmaceuticals plant, and also supply heat to households in the vicinity,” explains Tomáš Winkler, project manager.
The project was launched by signing the contract for work in late summer. The third quarter of 2018 will see the first deliveries to the site, to be followed by installation work with a view to completing the mechanical part of the installation in early 2019. Thereupon the project will be gradually put into operation. The handover of the work to the customer is planned for the end of 2019.
