GE 850MW Gas Turbine Installation at MYTILINEOS Agios Nikolaos
MYTILINEOS announced that General Electric's 9HA.02 gas turbine, the first of H class installed in Greece, was recently installed in the new under-construction power plant at the Agios Nikolaos Energy Center in Viotia, and when put into service will deliver 826MW to the grid, with 63% thermal efficiency, contributing to Greece’s energy safety. It is regarded as the main equipment of the new modern electrical energy station which is being built according to the timetable and is expected to be operational in early 2022. With the addition of the new station, MYTILINEOS' total electricity generation will exceed 2,000 MW, not including production from Renewable Energy Sources.
The current investment sets the upgraded power generation capacity of MYTILINEOS on a new solid track, while it is noteworthy that the €300 million investment, which will be concluded by the end of the year enables the new natural gas fired combined cycle (Combined Cycle Gas Turbine – CCGT) power station, as the largest, most efficient and modern plant in Greece and one of the largest power stations in Europe.
