OMV Petrom's Brazi power plant is a state-of-the-art natural gas facility, combining high efficiency and operational flexibility, which contributes to meeting the electricity market needs of Romania.
The plant was built with a total investment of approximately 530 million euros. It is the largest private greenfield project in electricity generation in Romania, with a capacity of 860 MW. This capacity allows it to cover approximately 10% of the electricity consumption in Romania.
The Brazi power plant is composed of two gas turbines (each with a capacity of 290 MW), two recovery boilers and a steam turbine (with a capacity of 310 MW), which ensure an efficiency of 57% and the ability to quickly start up and increase electricity production.
In addition to its operational benefits, the Brazi power plant has significantly lower CO2 emissions (~ 0,35 t CO2 / MWh) compared to conventional coal-fired plants (~ 0,8 t CO2 / MWh).
Over the past decade, the Brazi power plant has played a critical role in the security of energy supply in Romania, providing a reliable and flexible source of electricity.
OMV Petrom is committed to reduce its impact on the environment. Brazi power plant is a testament to our dedication to these goals and our contribution to a more sustainable future.
