State-of-the-art plant ensuring continuity of supply

In 2017, the Galion combustion turbine operated for 5,900 hours, supplying 96 GWh of electricity to the network, representing approximately 6% of the island’s power requirement. This share is expected to decrease following the commissioning of the all-biomass Galion 2 cogeneration plant in 2018.
