Blendecques is a 14 MW natural gas cogeneration power station located in the region of Nord-Pas-De-Calais in France. It is covered by a 12-year power sales contract with Électricité de France and a 20-year steam purchase agreement with Norampac Avot-Vallée S.A.
Blendecques cogeneration power station combines a natural gas cycle with a steam cycle; each cycle generates electricity. This power station uses natural gas only to power its gas turbine and drive the generator. The exhaust gas produced by the gas turbine is used to create steam without burning any fuel; the steam drives the steam turbine, generating additional electricity.
