Ansaldo Energia will build and supply the power generation equipment for a 300-MW German gas-fired facility.
The Italian firm was awarded the engineering, procurement and construction contract, on a turnkey basis, for the Irsching 6 plant in southern Bavaria. The plant 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 project “besonderes netztechnisches Betriebsmittel -bnBm” (network reserve project) which includes tenders in four areas of southern Germany.
In January, Uniper won the contract to build the Irsching 6 plant from grid operator Tennet. Ansaldo will work with Uniper on the project.
