GE selected as lifecycle partner for Poland’s largest refinery plant

GE Steam Power has been selected by Orlen to deliver a full life cycle power generation package for its Plock refinery plant which includes a new steam turbine generator set, Predix Asset Performance Management (APM) software and Industrial Managed Services, as well as a 10-year Multi-Year Agreement (MYA).

This mix of industrial hardware, software and service expertise will help our customer increase the reliability and efficiency and extend the overall life of its plant.

“Consistent development of the energy area, assuming the use of an efficient cogeneration process, i.e. a process with the highest energy efficiency in heat and electricity generation, is one of our strategic directions,” said Jarosław Dybowski, Executive Director for Power Engineering at PKN ORLEN.

“Thanks to new investments and development of the existing infrastructure, we are constantly strengthening our position on the electricity market, thus affecting the safety of our installations, but also Poland’s energy security.”

Elektrociepłownia Płock is the largest industrial unit of this type in Poland. With GE’s modernization project, the plant will continue to deliver stable and reliable electricity and supply heat for its own production as well as the companies operating in the vicinity and the city of Plock for years to come.

The new steam turbine generator set will replace the existing equipment at Plock Unit 1, which has been in operation for the past 50 years. Under a turnkey contract, GE Steam Power will integrate the new steam turbine generator set and its auxiliaries into the existing turbine island. Unit 1’s output will increase from 55MW to 65MW along with a 10% increase in efficiency.
