The Iernut Power Plant upgrade, undertaken from 2018 to 2020, is the largest Romanian public investment in the past 30 years. The project aimed to modernise and improve the efficiency of the power plant’s two units, which generate a total of 440 MW of electricity. The Iernut Power Plant is operated by Romgaz, the state-owned gas company, and is located in the Transylvania region of Romania.

Eastship was involved in the transportation of sensitive cargo, including two new gas turbines, two heat recovery steam generators, and a steam turbine, which were essential components of the upgrade. The project came with challenging requirements, including crossing tight mountain serpentines with cargo weighing over 200 tons. The Eastship team was able to deliver the cargo to the site on time, thanks to their expertise and creative solutions, such as interim storage layout arrangements.

The upgrade was part of Romania’s efforts to modernise its energy infrastructure and reduce its dependence on coal. The project received support from the European Union through its Cohesion Fund. Through this project, Romgaz was able to increase the efficiency of its power plant, reduce carbon emissions, and contribute to the country’s sustainable development. Eastship is proud to have been a part of this significant project.
