Noubaria 300 MW Power Station
Middle East and North AfricaOctober 22, 2020
K&M performed a comprehensive technical and economic feasibility study for the rehabilitation, upgrading and relocation of as many as eight frame 5 gas turbine generators from different sites around Egypt to one central site at Noubaria. The existing units were evaluated for their physical condition and remaining useful operational life. Furthermore, K&M evaluated the feasibility of adding a steam cycle that would increase efficiency and allow the facility to operate as a 300 MW combined cycle plant. A financial analysis of the station was performed using the tariff rates agreed upon by the Government for future implementation. Finally, the economic benefit of using the combined cycle versus the simple cycle was also demonstrated.
