Kraftanlagen, a subsidiary of Bouygues Construction in the Energies & Services division, has been chosen by InfraLeuna GmbH to lay the foundations for secure energy supply for the Leuna chemical complex, near Leipzig. The contract is worth more than EUR 100 million for Kraftanlagen.
This ambitious project follows on the commissioning in January 2020 of the Kiel coastal power plant, a highly flexible installation and a flagship project for the energy transition.
The modernisation of the existing InfraLeuna power plant will provide a high-performance combined-cycle gas and steam turbine plant, with improved efficiency and flexibility. In addition to the construction of the new combined-cycle plant, the contract includes the connection of the existing gas turbine to the new heat recovery steam generator.
Kraftanlagen will be the general contractor for the entire modernisation project. It will be responsible for the engineering studies, construction and commissioning of the whole plant, including integration of the existing installation.
The modernisation of the combined-cycle plant forms part of Leuna’s comprehensive energy concept. It will provide a competitive supply of process steam and electricity for companies installed in the chemical complex near Leipzig, and to increase the site’s capacity.
“This investment will enable us to optimise the energy supply of the Leuna chemical complex once again and create the right conditions for it to pursue its growth. We are delighted to have Kraftanlagen München GmbH, a skilled and highly regarded general contractor, as our partner,” Christof Günther, CEO of InfraLeuna GmbH, said.
Technical data for the new combined-cycle power plant
- Total net power: up to 117 MW
- Process steam flow rate: up to 190 t/h
- Fuel utilisation rate: 84%
