Iberdrola Ingenieria commissions 1.2 GW Koudiet CCGT plant in Algeria

31 Oct 2013

Iberdrola Ingenieria has completed the commissioning of the Koudiet combined-cycle power plant in Algeria, after switching on the third unit of this large generation facility, which totals a capacity of 1,200 MW. The company has carried out this project in partnership with General Electric, under a €1,470m contract awarded by SKD, a corporation set up by Sonelgaz and Sonatrach, the Algerian gas and electricity and hydrocarbon companies. The agreement included the design, equipment procurement, construction and assembly of the plant. Koudiet is a gas-fired CCGT plant consisting of three units, each with a capacity of 400 MW. The facility will supply energy to nearly 4 million people in Algeria, representing 18% of the country's total electricity consumption. This plant, for which construction started in 2008, is located in the town of Koudiet Edrauch, 40 kilometres from Annaba, the third largest city in the country, in the northern region of El Tarf.
