ISD commissioning first in Ukraine and CIS countries 303 Megawatt Gas Turbine Power Station
Metallurgical Plant with a complete production cycle (a part of ISD
Corporation) ranked among major Ukrainian steel producers will commission 303 Megawatt
Gas Turbine Power Station, a brand new sustainable project unprecedented in
Ukraine and CIS countries. The project
is a 675 million US dollars investment.
The Official Commissioning marked by presence of Ukrainian
President Mr. Yanykovych and top public
officials is scheduled on June 20th, 2013 at Alchevsk Metallurgical Plant
The project features the unique technology of
secondary metallurgical gases transformed into electric power enough to cover
Gas Turbine Power Station functioning without natural
gas consumption and allowing for 44% power efficiency is an unparalleled
example of synergy between green technology and industrial efficiency for
Ukrainian steel production.
The construction activity started in 2007. This ambitious
international project embraces
technologies of the leading companies, namely Mitsubishi Heavy
Industries, YUBA, Nooter Eriksen, as well as Ukrainian project companies
Enorgoproekt and Energostal.
Being essential for city’s environment and plant’s energy
efficiency, the technology will also be highly beneficial for Ukraine’s fuel
It is the first power station in CIS countries to
produce electric power from metallurgical by-products. Whereas previously the
excess gases were burnt into atmosphere, after the launch their heating energy
will be used to generate power.
