Project Details

Terga Combined Cycle Plant

Terga Combined Cycle Power Plant has a capacity of 1,200 MW.

A challenging EPC (Engineering Procurement and Construction) Lump Sum Turn Key combined cycle 1200 MW Power Plant project, was awarded in December 2007 by the Consortium Alstom Power Centrales, France and Orascom Construction Industries Egypt and Algeria, to build the plant in less than 48 months, The plant consists of 3 modules / blocks, each producing 400 MW of Alstom highly efficient KA26 Gas Fired modules technology.

Scope of Orascom Construction Industries included carrying out all engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) work for the entire project jointly with Alstom. Testing, pre-commissioning and commissioning were also included in the scope of OCI jointly with Alstom who supplied the Gas Turbines, HRSG and Steam Turbines.

The challenging execution of the 1,200 MW power plant on EPC basis, includes Design, Engineering, Procurement of Power Island and Balance of Plant Equipment; Marine Works, Intake and Outfall, knowing that the Plant level is quite elevated above sea level; Intake constitutes of 5 pipelines – of about 4 Km length, with 2,000 mm inner diameter reinforced concrete pipes.

Works of site leveling, concrete works, steel structure installation, marine works, finishing works, ancillary buildings, and all other works for the balance of plant, including electrical, mechanical works and the installation of main equipment such as gas turbines, steam turbines, HRSG, main turbine generators; Earthworks quantities including rock excavations, cut & fill, piling, stone columns, concrete works, steel rebar, steel structure exceeding 4,000 ton; ancillary buildings of more than 5,000 m²; electromechanical equipment erection exceeding 20,000 ton; piping erection exceeding 3,000 ton; tanks supply & erection exceeding 2,000 ton; should be accomplished in less than 4 years.

OCI is proud to cope with Alstom in building the first GT–26 Turnkey Gas Fired Combined Cycle in Africa, in Terga, 600 Km from the Capital, to serve new consumers and reinforce the Algerian Grid.
