Dolna Odra Power Station is a coal-fired power station at Nowe Czarnowo near Gryfino in West Pomeranian Voivodeship, Poland. It consists of 8 units, with capacities ranging from 215 to 232 MW. It was commissioned from 1974 to 1977.
Units 3-4 were retired in 2012 and 2014. Units 1-2 are on standby. According to Montel News, units 1-2 are planned to shut down on 1 January 2021. Units 1-2 were retired on December 31, 2020.
Proposed gas-fired capacity
PGE has proposed adding up to 1,434 MW of gas-fired capacity at the power station. In June 2019, PGE said it was seeking a contractor to design, deliver, construct and commission two combined cycle gas turbine units of 650-717 MW each at the plant under a turnkey contract. Bids were due by July 31 and the completion of the investment is scheduled for December 2023. Both units will have the ability to cogenerate heat as well as electricity.
In March of 2020 PGE placed a turbine order for the plant with GE. By 2021 the construction site had been handed over to the contractor, and construction is currently under way at the site. The project will use GE's 9.HA H-class turbine, capable of burning up to 50% hydrogen as part of its mix of fuels.
