ELECTRIC

GENERATION

AEC contributes to the construction of thermal electric energy production plants in Algeria.

With the KAHRAMA plant with a total daily production of 321 MW, AEC contributes to the national effort to produce electricity.

A Combined Cycle Gas (CCG) thermal power plant produces electricity using the heat released by the combustion of natural gas. This type of power plant combines two types of turbine: a combustion turbine and a steam turbine connected to an alternator. With the same volume of fuel, these two turbines can produce more electricity.

Thanks to the use of natural gas as fuel, CO2 emissions are halved compared to a coal power plant. Flexible and responsive, a combined cycle power plant has a higher efficiency than that of conventional thermal power plants. Able to go up to full power in less than an hour, it responds to strong variations in consumption, especially during very cold days.
