Background

The Azito power station in its current state was built in 3 phases, two simple cycle turbines built in 1999 and 2000, and a heat-recovery steam turbine that was commissioned in 2015 to create a combined cycle system with the three turbines.[13] In 2020, it was announced that the power station would be expanded with an additional 253 MW within the combined cycle system.[14] GE was selected to supply their E-class GT13E2 turbine for the project, meaning it will be able to burn up to 30% Hydrogen as part of its fuel mix.[15]
