Polish Prime Minister at the Ceremony in Turów


The lignite unit in Túrow will have a gross capacity of just under 500 MW and an efficiency of over 43%. The order is valued at 3.25bn zloty (approx. EUR 800m). Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems Europe is to supply the utility steam generator, the entire flue gas cleaning equipment, piping, turbine/generator, the overriding instrumentation & control and will place the power plant into service. Consortium partners Budimex SA (Poland) and Técnicas Reunidas, S.A. (Spain) are responsible for construction/erection, the cooling tower, general electrical engineering, steel structures, ducts and some balance-of-plant. The 500 MW unit is to be built on an existing power plant site on which six power plant units with 1,500 MW of installed capacity are located. The unit will be placed into service in mid-2019.

"This new plant will be one of the most modern of its type in the world when completed", states Rainer Kiechl, Chairman of the MHPSE Board of Directors. "The new unit will make a significant contribution to a dependable supply of power in an economy which is continuing to grow strongly". The order to construct the lignite unit has come from PGE – Poland's largest power supplier with a 40% market share of national power production and a 30% one of the end customer market. The official NTP (Notice-to-Proceed) for the project came at the beginning of December 2014.

Beforehand, MHPSE had secured the order to build a 1,075 MW bituminous coal plant at Kozienice (Poland) in 2012. "This further order is a clear testimony to the competence demonstrated by our corporate group in power plant construction & engineering", according to Rainer Kiechl. He added that the Duisburg plant constructor was an important mainstay of globally operating Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems (MHPS). "As part of the MHPS Group we not only provide efficient bituminous coal and lignite solutions but can resort - in the matter of gas-fired plants - to an enormous range of products and extensive references of our parent." He went on to say that this know-how was admirably suited to economically aspiring markets which very much depend on assured, technically highly developed power production involving a high local value added.
