Brazi power plant is a state-of-the-art natural gas fired power plant, which combines the high efficiency and operational flexibility, contributing to the balancing of the Romanian power market.
- The Brazi gas fired power plant is the largest private greenfield project in electricity generation in Romania
- With an 860 MW capacity, Brazi Power Plant can cover approx. 10% of Romanian power consumption. It could light up 70 million light bulbs simultaneously
- Technical information: two gas turbines (290 MW each), two heat recovery steam generators (HRSG) and one steam turbine (310 MW)
- It was commissioned in 2012. The investment in the project was approx. 530 million euro
- It brings security to the national power supply: it isn't dependent on weather and can balance the market following fluctuations of renewable energy
- High Efficiency: 57% is Brazi power plant efficiency (vs. 30% average power generation efficiency in Romania)
- High Flexibility: quick start (half of the time required by conventional power plants); high ramp-up speed;
- Low CO2 Emissions: CCPP Brazi generates power with 0,35t CO2/MWh emissions vs. a conventional coal power plant that generates power with ~ 0,8t CO2/ MWh emissions.
