Cogeneration power plant


The cogeneration plant (which generates combined electricity and heating) will provide electricity and technical steam for the Petromidia platform.
The new plant will comply with the highest technological, energy efficiency and environmental standards, and will be built in cooperation with the Uzina Termoelectrica Midia Power Plant – currently owned by the Ministry of Energy (56.58%) and KMG International (43.42%). It will work with natural gas as main fuel and will be able to produce around 70 MWel power and 180 t/h technical steam for the use of Petromidia Platform processes.

On 19th August 2020 the Kazakh Romanian Energy Investment Fund signed with Calik Enerji (Turkey) the EPC (Engineering, Procurement and Construction) contract for the turnkey construction of the cogeneration plant on the Petromidia platform. The total investment in this project amounts to about 148 million USD. The project will generate about 11 million USD in taxes paid to the state budget each year.

The Kazakh Romanian Energy Investment Fund starts the construction of the cogeneration plant on the Petromidia platform.Through the technical configuration (two Siemens SGT-750 turbines of high efficiency and performance and two heat recovery boilers), the new plant will generate approximately 80 MW of electricity - of which about 60-70 MW will fully cover the electricity needs of the Petromidia platform, technological steam of up to 180 tons / hour, plus the necessary hot water for the heating system of Navodari - up to 20 MWt / hour. The new unit for combined production of electricity and heat will operate on natural gas basis as the main fuel, the mix of necessary resources being provided in proportion of 25% of the technological process of the refinery and 75% of the national network. The estimated deadline for the commissioning of the new plant is the end of July 2023.
