According to a statement, the scope of supply is a complete equipment of an machine hall including a modular Doosan Škoda Power steam turbine DST-S10, a generator, heat exchangers, an oil system, a feed water tank, steam and heating piping, power and signal cabling, steel structures, a bridge crane, a fire protection system and lighting of the machine hall.

Doosan Škoda Power will also provide the complete assembly of the machine hall equipment including commissioning and subsequent guarantee measurements. This is a new cogeneration unit for Amagerværket combined heat and power (CHP) plant in Copenhagen where Doosan Škoda Power already carried on its business in the past.

The specifics of this project are in its complexity both in the scale of the engineering, and the extent of the actual order. The time from the full effectiveness of the contract to put the power plant into operation is 31 months.

The rated output of the single body backpressure steam turbine type DST-S10 with the steam for heating the greater Copenhagen area including the city itself represents 150 MW, the maximum power for heating 617 MWt. The new block will exclusively burn sustainable biomass.

Denmark is a well-established market for Doosan Škoda Power steam turbines for heating plants. Since the 1970s, the installed capacity of its steam turbines is at 784 MW. Currently, the company is completing the Lisbjerg biomass project with a steam turbine that enables cogeneration of electricity with the output of 38 MWe and power of 66 MWth for heating.
