ALSTOM has won a contract for around 425 million from Sohar Aluminium Company for the turnkey construction of a 1000 MW gas-fired combined cycle power plant in Oman.  

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 operating hours.

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.
