Romania’s Institute for Studies and Power Engineering (ISPE) has selected Alstom’s Chilled Ammonia Process (CAP) as the basis for the development of a carbon capture and storage (CCS) demo plant at the Turceni power plant.
The carbon capture plant will be integrated into Unit 6 at the Turceni power plant which will at the same time be retrofitted to a capacity of 330 MW. The ‘Romanian CCS Demo Project’ represents the very first step towards realizing the CCS action plan of the Romanian government and will be presented as a candidate project for European Union NER300 (New Entrant Reserve) funding for CCS projects.
Philippe Joubert, President of Alstom Power, declared: “We are delighted to partner with ISPE and Romania for this important project, and will bring a wealth of experience and capabilities in this alliance. The selection of Alstom technology demonstrates our leadership in this field, critical for the future of fossil-based power generation.”
