GE awarded technology order for South Eastern Europe’s largest gas project
“This project will result in one of the largest and most efficient gas power plants in South Eastern Europe and will change the way power is delivered in Romania,” said Joe Mastrangelo, president and CEO of GE Power’s Gas Power Systems.
“With our expanded portfolio of products and services, we are able to provide end-to-end solutions that maximize efficiency and reliability and help power producers meet emissions standards while reducing costs at the same time.”GE’s technology will benefit the Romanian grid in multiple ways. In addition to flexible start up times of less than 15 minutes, the power plant will bring more stability to the grid by providing faster and more accessible energy reserves. The strategic location of the Iernut power plant — close to high-voltage lines connecting Romania’s different geographic regions — will enable energy providers to respond quickly to grid demand fluctuations in the region with minimal transmission and distribution loss. This year, GE celebrates more than three decades of business in Romania. The company’s history dates back to 1984 when GE provided turbo-generator units for the Cernavoda Nuclear Power Plant. Today, all of GE’s major businesses have a presence in Romania, and almost 1000 employees support customers in the country and abroad.
