Alstom and Dalia Power Energies have inaugurated the 835MW Haruvit combined-cycle power plant (CCPP) in Israel.
France-based Alstom was responsible for the management of the entire gas-fired project on a turnkey basis.
Starting from the initial design, the firm had delivered services for the project up to its final commissioning.
The facility is equipped with two combined-cycle units that integrate Alstom’s GT26 gas turbine, steam turbine, generator and heat recovery steam generator.
Alstom’s distributed control system Alspa Series 6 and 420kV gas-insulated substation connects the energy facility to the power grid in the country.
The French firm is also responsible for operation and maintenance of the power station for twenty years.
Haruvit CCPP can deliver a gross efficiency of 58%, which makes it ‘the most efficient power plant in Israel’, claims Alstom.
Once operational, the facility can add nearly 8% to the country’s installed power generation capacity.
Alstom chairman and CEO Patrick Kron said: "Alstom is proud to celebrate today the delivery of Haruvit power plant.
"It represents the group’s first entry into the Israeli gas market with a world-class power plant to meet the country’s energy needs, thanks to the most efficient and flexible power generation units in the entire national generation fleet."
