ALSTOM has recently won a series of Power generation contracts for a total value more than €180 million from countries all over the world.
ALSTOM has been awarded a contract for approximately €20 million from Bechtel Power Corporation to supply a Dry Flue Gas Desulphurisation (DFGD) System for Unit No. 3 of the Springerville Expansion Project in Springerville, Arizona. The 400 MW Unit will be owned and operated by the Tri-State Generation and Transmission Association and operated by Tucson Electric Power (TEP).
It is scheduled to start-up in summer 2006 with project completion expected late 2006.
In Germany, ALSTOM has been awarded a contract by Grosskraftwerk Mannheim AG (GKM) for the modernisation and conversion of Boiler #17 from natural gas to bituminous coal. The total value of the contract is approximately €40 million.
Conversion work will begin in November 2004, and commissioning is expected by summer 2005.
ALSTOM has also signed a long-term service agreement, worth approximately
€9 million, with RWE Systems AG for the Ludwigshafen combined cycle power plant in Germany. The exclusive agreement includes the supply of new and reconditioned parts for the thermal block of the plant’s two GT13E2 gas turbines until end 2006.
In Sweden, ALSTOM has been awarded a contract by Ringhals AB to retrofit units 1-1 and 1-2 at Ringhals Nuclear Power Plant. The contract is valued at approximately €9 million. Delivery of both units is scheduled for summer 2005.
In the UK, ALSTOM has signed a contract, valued at around €8 million, with Eggborough Power Ltd (a British Energy company), to supply a spare generator stator at Eggborough power plant in East Yorkshire. This work is scheduled to take approximately 18 months.
ALSTOM has signed a contract, valued at around €40 million, with Alba Aluminium Bahrain B.S.C. (ALBA) to supply six top-mounted combustor chambers equipped with ALSTOM’s advanced EV burner technology. The new combustors will be installed in the customer’s gas-fired, combined-cycle power plant, Power Station 3, at Manama, Bahrain.
In the first phase of the project, upgrading of one gas turbine will be completed by June 2004 after being performed during a scheduled major inspection to keep downtime to a minimum. Five other upgrades will then be carried out on the power station's remaining gas turbines – one or two being planned for completion each year.
