The Project

In preparation for the de-regularisation of the power generation industry in Ireland, ESB International provided the concept for Ireland's first Independent Power Producer (IPP), a 422 MW combined cycle gas turbine (CCGT) plant in Dublin. Converting an old oil fired site into a new clean and efficient generating station.
