Iren Thermoelectric Plant

430 MW combined cycle plant in Turbigo

The first parallel firing of the steam turbine at the combined cycle plant in Turbigo was successful. With it, Iren is closer to completion of the new 430 MW plant, bringing overall output to 1,280 MW.

Ansaldo Energia supplied and installed the main components. These include a AE94.3A gas turbine, generators, step-up transformers, and the heat recovery steam generator (HRSG). They also handled the construction, assembly, and supply of mechanical and electrical auxiliary systems.

The Turbigo Plant repowering is part of Iren Group’s Industrial Plan @ 2030. The goal is finding energy balance in electrical generation from renewable sources.
