Plana del Vent gas-fired combined cycle power plant

Located in Vandellós, approximately 130 km southwest of Barcelona, Plana del Vent is a combined cycle power plant equipped with two 400 MW modules. Each module is comprised of a gas turbine, a heat recovery steam generator and a steam turbine. Thanks to its total capacity of 800 MW, Plana del Vent can supply electricity to cover the annual consumption of two million households.

The plant was commissioned in 2007. Alpiq acquired one of the CCGT units plus a right of use of the other one in 2011 from Gas Natural Fenosa.
