The scope of the contract covers the engineering, supply,
building and commissioning of the plant, located in Sohar, Oman
and a 15 year long-term service agreement for gas turbines,
generators and auxiliaries. The project is expected to start in
mid-December and is scheduled for completion in June 2008.
The power plant, which will supply electricity to power a
new aluminium smelter, will be based around ALSTOM GT13E2
gas-turbine technology and the company will supply four such
turbines along with four heat recovery steam generators, two
steam turbines, six generators, a digital control system and
balance of plant.
This brings the total of GT13E2 machines sold by ALSTOM to
106 units. The fleet has now accumulated more than 2,600,000
The order also includes an option for Sohar to add an
additional 500 MW of capacity in the future, in buying a
further two GT13E2 gas turbines, two heat recovery steam
generators, steam turbine and three generators.
Philippe Joubert, President of ALSTOMs Power Turbo
Systems and Power Environment Sectors, said: Aluminium
smelting demands flexible, reliable and powerful power plant
equipment, making the ALSTOM GT13E2 technology an ideal choice.
ALSTOMs leading technology and ability to deliver and
service power plants, cornerstones of our plant integrator
capability, were key in winning this contract.
