Alstom has been awarded by Toyo Engineering Corporation a contract worth about €65 million to supply 12 units of 35MW to 45MW Geared Reaction steam Turbine (GRT) generators, its auxiliaries as well as the condensers to 12 different power plants to Gulf MP Company Limited, in Thailand.
The contract was awarded along in the frame of the third phase of Thailand’s Small Power Producer (SPP) scheme to help Thailand achieves its energy needs. The project will bring additional capacity to the grid of Thailand and steam to the industries around the power plants.
Daniel Wahler, Alstom’s Vice President for Industrial Steam Turbines, said: “This is an outstanding success where Alstom has been able to secure a volume order in a very competitive environment. It shows Gulf MP Company confidence in Alstom’s innovative and reliable technology. More, this contract reflects our commitment to play a strategic role in the diversification of Thailand’s energy mix.”
Alstom’s GRT steam turbines provide optimised solutions for an efficient and flexible power and steam production. The first power plant is expected to be commissioned during 2016 and first commercial operation date in May 2017, with the rest to be operational within 2019.
Alstom has been present in Thailand for over 40 years, having supplied over 7GW of installed capacity in the country and is currently constructing a combined cycle new unit in North Bangkok power plant as well as the Asia’s first ultra-supercritical lignite-fired unit in Mae Moh power plant.
