Deir Ali Combined Cycle Power Plant Turnkey Project Many power plants generate electricity that is delivered to every consumer throughout Syria, but none is like the Deir Ali Power Plant. It is one of the largest Combined Cycle Power Plant (CCPP) in the Levant; it generates at a capacity of 750-800 MW which is about 10% of total capacity in Syria before the crises. It has two Gas Turbines and one Steam Turbine working on natural gas as a main fuel, and distillate oil as a back-up fuel.
The Deir Ali CCPP project is the largest turnkey project and the most efficient Power Plant in Syria and ASTE is the first company to take on such a large scope of work.
The concept of a Combined Cycle: integrating re-heat process to attain efficiency rates as high as 60%, which is 150% higher than the traditional thermal plants. In short, this means that the heat and steam generated as waste in the Gas Turbines is reused to generate more electricity in the Steam Turbines.
