Bulgaria TPP Ruse switches to gas

Bulgarian thermal power plant Ruse will switch to gas in attempts to reduce it’s CO2 emmisions.

Over the past two years, we have been working on the introduction of natural gas into the fuel mix, which will lead to a reduction in the share of solid fossil fuels used

Eng. Sevdalin Zhelev, executive director of Ruse Heating.

He pointed out that they are working hard for energy transformation and modernization of the plant.

TPP Ruse power plant is 400 MW provided by 6 turbines. Two condensing steam turbines with a nominal design power of 30 MW each. Two condensing steam turbines with a nominal design power of 110 MW each. Two condensing steam turbines with a nominal design power 60 MW each.The design thermal output from the adjustable steam stacks of the turbines is 624 MW.

The director of “Ruse Heating” commented that the energy transition in Bulgaria must be carried out in a smooth and fair manner. According to him, this can only be achieved through investments in clean fuels, without closing base plants, as well as without closing jobs.

We intend to produce energy from biogas in the future as well. This is a project on which we are yet to work and the implementation of which will help to improve the impact on the environment and clean air in Ruse.
