    Isolux Corsan is constructing a 335 MW combined cycle in Bangladesh, which will strengthen the national electricity system and increase network reliability in one of the world’s most populous countries (nearly 165 million inhabitants).

    The engineering stage, carried out by IDOM, ended in 2015 and at the end of 2016 the construction phase of the open cycle was completed, with the first fire achieving “full speed no load”. Work is currently underway to close the combined cycle.

    The power plant, located in the industrial centre of Siddhirganj, about 20 km from the capital Dhaka, has state-of-the-art technology. It is configured in 1x1x1 multi-axis mode, with a General Electric (GE) 9FA gas turbine, fuelled by natural gas and a steam turbine, also from GE.

    Cooling of the closed cycle is performed by cooling towers with previously treated water supply from the Sita Lakhya River, located approximately 1 km from the plant.

    IDOM has developed the basic and detailed engineering of the cycle.

    In early December 2016, the official opening of the Smart Green Home Project was held at the Bosch Thermotechnology Center in Aveiro. The event was attended by Portuguese Prime Minister, António Costa, and Minister of Economy, Manuel Caldeira Cabral.

    The international company of German origin BOSCH has in the Portuguese city of Cacia (Aveiro) its global centre of expertise for the development of hot water systems (thermotechnology). The multinational built a new facility dedicated to research and development.

    BOSCH appointed IDOM to undertake the architecture and engineering of the new building, equipped with advanced research laboratories. The architectural features of the new building include constructive solutions devised by the IDOM team, with special attention not only to technological and environmental aspects, but also to formal and aesthetic features.

    The building, that has achieved the Energy Performance Certificate with an A+ performance Level, consists of two main floors, which accommodate the Thermotechnology Laboratories, rooms for events and informal meetings, and the administrative offices. On the cover or roof, a technical space was created to house the HVAC equipment and electric power transformer station, as well as other equipment.

    Iberdrola, the most important private producer of electricity in Mexico, is growing its share of the energy market in the country.

    The multinational electric utility company has one of the most efficient and flexible combined cycle power plants in Mexico. Located close to the city of Monterray, the power plant aptly named “Monterray III” has been in operation since 2002.  Until now, the plant consisted of four operating units with an installed capacity of 962 MW.

    In 2016, Iberdrola decided to build a fifth unit, known as “Dulces Nombres II” with an installed capacity of around 300 MW. After successfully completing the testing phase, this unit became operational in early October 2016.

    The new plant will operate solely as combined cycle (there is no gas by-pass chimney), without post-combustion. The facility has an evaporative cooler, an additional component that will improve the performance of the gas turbine and develop its potential in this warm and dry location.

    IDOM has collaborated with Iberdrola on the detailed design of the project, sharing the scope of works, of  which our firm has developed the mechanical engineering, process engineering and electrical and process control.
