Surus Inversa announces the sale of a power plant in Spain with the opportunity to relocate it. 

 

The economic viability of Combined Cycle Power Plants in Spain has been compromised during this last decade due to a variety of reasons that make them no longer profitable. Consequently, some plants of this mixed generation are starting to close.

The Combined Cycle Power Plant located in Tarragona is one of the first examples of this closures and it is now for sale to be relocated and continue working in countries where combined cycle generation is much more profitable and economically viable.

The plant is in conservation and the main elements are in their early stage of life cycle so it becomes an opportunity to continue producing.

Surus Inversa is the company in charge of the sale and will support the parties in the removal and logistics activities advising about the best alternatives and subcontractors in case needed. Surus is endeavored to help companies to manage their assets through circular economy solutions, always seeking for more sustainable ways of proceed and for the reuse of every asset avoiding waste disposals and emissions.

The plant works on a Single Shaft configuration with a gas turbine and a steam turbine, both connected to a single alternator. The energy source used to feed the plant is natural gas and diesel as an alternative when necessary. It has a gross electrical power of 395,01 MW 50hz.

The plant started operating in 2003. In 2015 was its administrative closure and in 2017 its last connection.

Here is a list of the main elements of the plant:

Gas Turbine: GE 9FA Composed of inlet guide vanes, a multistage axial flow compressor, 18-chamber combustion system, water injection system, dual fuel system (natural gas and diesel fuel). It presents static start mode and high efficiency pulsating air filter.

Steam Turbine: General Electric Power Systems D-10ª. It has two bodies: one of high / medium pressure of inverse flows and another of low pressure of double flow. It also contains toner; common lubrication oil system with gas turbine and generator; sealing oil system and protections for overspeed, vibration, pressure and temperature in the intake and exhaust.

Alternator: 468 MVA to 19 kV connected in star and cooled by hydrogen. It has static type excitation system and automatic voltage regulator.

Recovery Boiler: Alstom Power Boilers, GR-0690 multipressure, horizontal, unfired heat recovery steam generator. It is composed of economizer, low pressure recirculation system, evaporator, overheating section, intermediate pressure reheat section, intake ducts, direction and exhaust gas discharge of the gas turbine.

For a comprehensive inspection, further information about the plant and the terms and conditions of sale, interested parties should contact Jorge Lopez, email [email protected] or phone +34913524507. To view more pictures and information access https://tarragonapowerplant.com/power-plant-sale/

UK Nissan fleet owners receive commercial charging service

V2G technology developed by DREEV can recharge an EV battery when electricity is at its cheapest, and discharge excess energy to sell back into the grid

UK fleet owners of Nissan Leaf and e-NV200 models can avail of a new commercial charging service using vehicle-to-grid (V2G) technology.

The service, designed to support the grid through low carbon energy consumption, is being provided by EDF, through Group subsidiary DREEV, in partnership with Nissan.

The V2G technology developed by DREEV, which is a joint venture between EDF and Nuvve, which specialises in V2G technology, allows for two-way energy flow; both recharging an EV’s battery when electricity is at its cheapest, and discharging excess energy to sell back into the grid. 

Fleet customers will save around £350 savings per charger each year, which equates to approximately 9,000 miles of driving charge per year.

EDF’s V2G business solution includes:

  • The supply and installation of a two-way connected compact 11kW charger capable of fully charging a Nissan LEAF, depending on the battery model, in 3 hours and 30 minutes - 50 per cent faster than a standard charger - with integrated DREEV technology.

  • A dedicated DREEV smart phone app, to define the vehicles’ driving energy requirements, track their state of charge in real time, and control charging at any time

Philip Valarino, Interim Head of EV Projects at EDF, said today’s announcement marks an important step on the UK’s journey towards electric mobility. "By combining the expertise and capabilities of EDF, Nissan and Dreev we have produced a solution that could transform the EV market as we look to help the UK in its journey to achieve Net Zero," he said. “Our hope is that forward-thinking businesses across the country will be persuaded to convert their traditional fleets to electric, providing them with both an environmental and economic advantage in an increasingly crowded market.”

Andrew Humberstone, Managing Director, NMGB, said Nissan has been a pioneer in 100% electric mobility since 2010, and the integration of electric vehicles into the company is at the heart of Nissan's vision for intelligent mobility.

He added the Nissan LEAF, with more than half a million units already sold worldwide - is the only model today to allow V2G two-way charging and offers economic opportunities for businesses "that no other electric vehicle does today". Click here for more information. 

US updates

FirstEnergy Corp, which aims to electrify 30% of its approximately 3,400 light duty and aerial fleet vehicles by 2030, has joined the Electric Highway Coalition. The group of electric companies, which has grown to 14 members, is committed to enabling long-distance EV travel through a network of EV fast-charging stations connecting major highway systems.  

The Edison Electric Institute estimates 18 million EVs will be on US roads by 2030. While many drivers recognize the benefits of driving an EV, some are concerned with the availability of charging stations during long road trips. Through their unified efforts, the members of the EHC are addressing this "range anxiety" and demonstrating to customers that EVs are a smart choice for traveling long distances as well as driving around town.

Volta Industries has installed new charging stations at Safeway in Upper Marlboro, Maryland, and Renton, Washington.
