Ramboll is assisting Hrvatska Elektropriveda d.d., the national electricity utility in Croatia, in upgrading the EL-TO Zagreb power plant. This plant provides electricity and district heating to the City of Zagreb.
A new combined cycle gas turbine (CCGT) cogeneration plant is to be installed to replace existing old units, which no longer comply with current environmental requirements. The new CCGT plant will represent a significant increase in efficiency for the site and enables the site operator to be compliant with the requirements of the Industrial Emissions Directive (IED), including the relevant Emissions Limit Values.
Ramboll’s key personnel have vast experience working on similar CCGT and combined heat and power (CHP) plants around the world, especially in mainland Europe and the Middle East.
Ramboll is acting as the Owner’s Engineer for the client and providing services over the next three years, covering both the design and construction periods, as well as the six-month commissioning and testing phase of the project. Ramboll will bring experience and expertise during the execution of the project to ensure that the client secures a modern, state-of-the-art facility that meets their required needs for the foreseeable future.
The project involves the replacement of several existing boiler and turbine units with a more efficient CCGT-CHP power plant to provide both electricity and hot water for district heating. The new facility incorporates two gas turbines, two heat recovery steam generates and one steam turbine, as well as a new plant associated with the district heating scheme.
Ramboll will have members of the personnel on site during the construction, commissioning and final testing stages of the project, to provide support and guidance to the client’s project team. The plant is scheduled to be operational from December 2021.
