US-based GE Power has been selected as the engineering procurement and commissioning (EPC) lead in a consortium with Alstom Power Systems to build the 1GW ultra-supercritical (USC) Ostroleka C coal energy plant in Poland.

The new power plant is expected to begin its commercial operations within 56 months after obtaining financial closure and receiving the notice to proceed.

GE Europe CEO Peter Stracar said: “Our role, at GE, is to support our customers and countries like Poland to choose and implement the energy systems, which best meets their needs and targets in terms of energy security, costs and sustainability.

“GE has the broadest portfolio of technology to help Poland use its natural resources in the most efficient way and support the energy transition in Europe.”

Under the deal, GE Power will also be responsible for designing, manufacturing and delivering its USC technology components, which includes boiler and steam turbine generator for the new power plant.

GE Power said that its new USC technology will enable the plant to perform with optimum efficiency.
