Kispest Power Plant - the most modern power plant unit of Budapesti Erőmű Zrt.

 

Address: Budapest XVIII., Nefelejcs u. 2.

Power Plant director: Ferenc Jung

Tel.: +36/15773301

The plant started to generate combined heat and power in the 1960’s. The construction of the power plant was determined by the demand of the neighbouring industrial heat consumers, including Kispest Textile Factory as the largest one, so it was intended mainly for industrial steam supply. When the Lakatos Street housing estate was built, the power plant joined also district heating.

In accordance with the changing energy demand of the surrounding quarters, capacity was increased in the early 70’s, and the plant changed over first from coal firing to heavy oil firing and then to natural gas firing. Besides natural gas firing, heavy oil remained a secondary fuel until the shutdown of the old technology.

By the 90’s it became clear that it was not any more possible to meet the stricter metropolitan environmental requirements and to increase the efficiency of energy generation with the old technology of the power plant. The technological equipment also reached the end of their useful life.

From the power plant’s point of view, successful participation in the electrical capacity tender announced by MVM Rt in 1999 was a vital question. The old power plant section refurbished in the framework of the investment project was supplemented with a modern gas steam cycle gas turbine unit.

The upgraded and enlarged power plant has been in commercial operation since 2004. Its environmental emissions fully satisfy the requirements exiting against a metropolitan power plant. Its overall efficiency is higher than 80%, and its energy generation is considerably more favourable than that of the old power plant.

The operation time based and system service reliability indicators of the power plant have been around 99% for several years.

The plant generates and delivers heat to FŐTÁV Zrt for the districting and utility hot water supply of more than 40 000 flats in the Kispest and Kőbánya district heating areas.

Some figures about Kispest Power Plant (2013):

  • district heating area: 41 617 flats and 618 other district heating consumers
  • contracted heat capacity (for 2014 with Főtáv): 222 MWth
  • built-in electrical capacity: 113.3 MWe
