Steam turbine retrofit

Agios Georgios is the only Power Plant located close to the capital of Greece, Athens. It is an old thermal plant with an installed base of 2 x 250MW LMZ steam turbine unit. After an upgrade of the boiler from diesel fuel to Natural Gas, the Public Power Corporation (PPC) hoped to be able to use this plant to contribute and manage the power fluctuation of Athens.
