Ansaldo Energia to supply 300MW open-cycle plant in Irsching, Germany

UniAnsal 2Ansaldo Energia has been awarded an EPC contract (engineering, procurement and construction, on a turnkey basis) for the design, supply and installation of an open-cycle thermoelectric power plant with an installed power of 300MW in Irsching, in southern Bavaria (Germany)

The plant – called ‘Irsching 6’ - will be equipped with an AE94.3A gas turbine, its generator and auxiliary systems. The plant will be operational by October 2022.

The contract is part of the German TSO project "besonderes netztechnisches Betriebsmittel - bnBm" (network reserve project) which includes tenders in four areas of southern Germany.

Customer of the supply is the company Uniper, a major German utility. Last January, Uniper was awarded a contract by the TenneT network operator for the construction and operation of a reserve plant capable of timely supplying energy in case of emergency. The purpose of the plant is to ensure a reliable supply of electricity, within the framework of the country's general strategy aimed at achieving ambitious climate improvement objectives, without risks for companies and households.

Ansaldo Energia has won this major European tender and focuses on supporting Uniper in the implementation of the project. The technological solution proposed has proven to be reliable, efficient and economically profitable in a European transition scenario requiring ever-increasing support for network stability, in the context of a massive and growing use of renewable energy.
