Successful Pressure Test on Delimara Power Station, Malta

Pressure test team 1


Aalborg Engineering A/S can now convey that the pressure tests of all three boilers incl. the feed water system is completed and approved by Siemens, NoBo and the End Client (AECOM). Siemens, NoBo, and the End Client (AECOM) have all expressed their great satisfaction with Aalborg Engineering's efforts to reach this milestone.


The CCPP is part of a program of the government of Malta to phase out the use of heavy fuel oil and switch to the use of natural gas for power production.

The new CCPP is located at the existing Delimara power station near the city of Marsaxlokk, in southeastern Malta. It will generate enough power to meet approximately 50% of Malta's electricity demand, and will operate at high efficiency with low emissions, also at part loads. When this new plant takes up operation, the level of air pollutants as well as fuel consumption for overall power production in Malta will be considerably reduced.

The new power plant is of Siemens type SCC-800 3x1C, which is based on three SGT-800 gas turbines, three HRSGs SteamGen™ 8 and one SST-900 steam turbine.
