Project facts

Project Type: Combined cycle power plant

Client: Sorgenia Puglia SpA

Electric output: 814 MW

Commissioning date: 2009

The Modugno gas turbine combined cycle power plant was completed in 2009. It was built on a very narrow site in the industrial area close to the city of Bari. The plant consists of two gas turbines, two heat recovery steam generators (HRSGs) and one steam turbine. The electric output of the plant is 800 MW and the fuel is natural gas.

During the design and implementation of the plant, special attention was paid, besides efficiency, to the minimization of noise impacts and water consumption. The project also included a 6 km long 380 kV power transmission line (partly underground cable and partly overhead line), a 380 kV sub-station to the HV national grid (TERNA), an about 8 km long raw water line and some street arrangements.
