The Industrial Plant Division of Cobra Instalaciones y Servicios, in conjunction with General Electric (GE), is developing a project for the supply and EPC turnkey construction of a combined cycle power plant in Mittelsbüren. The plant is being developed by the German group SWB and is located in the German city of Bremen, in the Northwest of the country, next to the existing power plant owned by SWB.
With a nominal installed capacity of 400MW, the new plant is expected to provide power to approximately 500,000 homes since the beginning of its operation, scheduled for August 2013. Also, 165MW have been reserved to cover the energy needs of Deutsche Bahn, the leading national railway operator in Germany. The plant has been conceived and designed for fully automatic operation including start-up and shutdown processes.
