The proposed power plant will have a capacity of 920 megawatts (MW). The main plant unit, also called the power island, will consist of a turbine hall housing one gas and one steam turbine, as well as the electric generator. The turbine hall is connected to the boiler, which generates steam by using the exhaust heat from the gas turbine. Cooled-down exhaust gases from the boiler escape through the stack, which forms the end of the power island.
The cooling system consists of several cooling cells, which use water and air to cool down the exhaust heat, which has a relatively low temperature and cannot be further used for power generation. The generated electricity will go through the switchyard and into the connection from the power plant to the Sándorfalva substation of the national transmission grid.
A set of fuel oil tanks will hold the back-up fuel oil on site, which we will only use when the natural gas supply is interrupted. This is a legal requirement for all new gas power plants from the Electricity Act (2007) to ensure uninterrupted electricity supply throughout Hungary.
The image below shows how the future power plant may look. It has been produced for demonstration purposes only, and the final plant layout may be optimised during the planning process:
