The project was initiated in September 2013 and was officially handed over to the end owner in November 2019. Doosan Škoda Power worked with Hyundai Engineering & Construction Co. Ltd, a Korean EPC company, on the project. It is the first combined gas-steam cycle in Uruguay, which will cover up to 25% of local power consumption, thus marking a significant step towards stabilization of the network, which still relied predominantly on local hydro power plants until recently. In addition to the 200MW steam turbine with double-casings, condensing with reheat and the radial steam outlet from rear low pressure part into the water condenser, the Pilsen-based manufacturer also supplied the operational equipment consisting of a generator, a control system and field instrumentation, an oil system, piping, a gland steam system and drain system.
Noteworthy recent projects in this region include a 200MW turbine set for the Termotajasero coal-fired power plant in Colombia and two 153MW turbines with accessories for the Paco project in Panama. The regional managers agree that the Pilsen-based company’s competitive advantage stems in part from the excellent work of its sales office in the region.
