CCGT Power Plants in the Netherlands
Buggenum
Location: LI
Operator: NUON
Configuration: 284-MW, 1+1 CCGT with V94.2 gas turbine
Operation: 1994 (ret)
Fuel: coal syngas
HRSG supplier: Stork
T/G supplier: Siemens
EPC: Comprimo, Siemens
Quick facts: The plant has been owned by NUON since 2001 and is also known as Willem-Alexander. This was one of a handful of operational IGCC plants in the world and uses Shell gasfication technology. The gasification plant has been tested using sewage sludge, chicken litter, wood, and paper pulp. Buggenum was designed to run baseload after the initial demonstration period, but it is a complex and high-cost plant and Nuon announced in Dec 2012 that it was planning to close the facility due to adverse market conditions. The plant closed on 1 Apr 2013.

Sloe
Location: ZE
Operator: Sloe Centrale BV
Configuration: 2 X 435-MW single-shaft CCGT blocks with SGT5-4000F gas turbine CHP
Operation: 2009
Fuel: natural gas
HRSG supplier: CMI
T/G supplier: Siemens
EPC: Siemens, Ballast Nedam Infra
Quick facts: This project in Vlissingen-Oost is a JV of Delta BV and EDF. In Dec 2008, Project Finance International named the Sloe financing European Power Deal of the Year. Fortis, HSBC and Royal Bank of Scotland were initial MLAs with debt split between a €510m amortising loan and a €25m debt service revolver. Following financial close, the banks brought BBVA and Bank Nederlandse Gemeenten into the senior phase, raising €210m of the €325m they needed. They were followed by Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi, ING and Societe Generale. Electricity output is traded by each party on the de-regulated European power market. In Jul 2008, the partners selected contract management software from Navita to manage the commercial aspects of the tolling agreements. Steam is sold to energy services company Deltius in Vlissingen, an affiliate of Delta. The plant was handed over on 12 Feb 2010. Sloecentrale is designed for 250 starts/yr with NOX emissions <15ppm and thermal efficiency of about 59%.
