Wood Group GTS will build the Dorad Power Plant for Israel’s Dorad energy under a $875m EPC contract.

The 800MW natural gas-fired plant is expected to come onstream in three years and will account for 8% of Israel’s total installed power generation capacity once complete.

Wood Group GTS has full turnkey responsibility for the combined-cycle plant including design, procurement and construction through to commissioning and handover.

The combined-cycle power plant will utilise 12 natural gas-fired turbines connected to a heat-recovery steam generator to provide steam to run two steam turbines.

This combined-cycle gas-turbine technology will offer significantly improved emissions as compared with coal-fired technology.

Wood Group GTS CEO Mark Papworth said: “The Dorad Power Plant will be one of the first major operational independent power producers following Israel’s deregulation of electricity markets.”
