Selection of Concept for the Combined Cycle Power Plant


The aim of the project is construction of a combined cycle power plant in Industrial Park Zeitz, Sahsen-Anhalt Land , Germany for generation of electric power and its sale in the wholesale market. In addition, the produced steam shall meet the demand of Industrial Park in the city of Zeitz .


As the result of pre-design study, the following configuration of the power plant is recommended:

• 2 gas turbines with an electrical capacity of 45 MW each;
• heat recovery steam generator (HRSG);
• steam turbine with an electrical capacity of 38 MW;
• air-cooled condenser system
• standby boilers;
• auxiliary equipment.

It is planned to connect the power plant to gas pipeline laid in close vicinity of the Industrial Park.


The power plant shall be located compactly on the area of 1,7 ha .



Current status 


Company GuD Zeitz  GmbH was established as a special purpose company for arrangement  of the power plant construction on the territory of Industrial Park Zeitz.
