proposed new 840 MW natural gas-fired power plant will support the energy transition in Greece and the development of the Alexandroupolis region. The project is the brainchild of the Copelouzos Group’s Damco Energy S.A. (DAMCO) and the facility will be built in Alexandroupolis, Greece. The Alexandroupolis plant will be powered by an equipment package which includes a GE 9HA.02 gas turbine, an STF-D650 steam turbine, a W88 generator, a triple pressure with reheat Heat Recovery Steam Generator (HRSG) and the Mark VIe Distributed Control System (DCS) software solution. The plant is expected to start operation in 2026. Public Power Corp. S.A. and DEPA S.A. will each participate with respectively 51% and 29% in the share capital of Alexandroupolis Electricity Production SA, the company that will finance, construct, own and operate the new power plant. DAMCO is the nominated EPC contractor by Alexandroupolis Electricity Production SA.
Andreas Diamandopoulos, General Manager, DAMCO, tells WIP:
“Alexandroupolis power plant is in the crossroads of the natural gas network of the Balkan region. It was crucial for us to select the most advanced technology, such as GE’s 9HA.02 gas turbine, to help secure the lowest cost of conversion from gas to electricity to support the energy transition in Greece. GE’s flexible, efficient, and reliable gas power generation equipment proved to be the best-suited technology to complement renewables’ growth in Greece.”
