ALSTOM has been awarded a contract worth approximately 70M euros with Australian energy company Alinta Ltd for the supply of two 172 MW GT13E2 gas turbines for the first stage of a major cogeneration facility at Alcoas Wagerup alumina refinery in Australia.

The power plant will provide reserve capacity to the new wholesale electricity market in the state of Western Australia.

 The Alstom turbines, operating initially in open cycle, are each capable of producing 175.5 MW of power at summer peak load. The project, Wagerup Stage 1, is scheduled to begin in the third quarter of 2006, with completion by October 2007. At a later stage, Wagerup Stage 2, the turbines will be part of a cogeneration plant, operating as a baseload power station providing both steam and electricity.

Under the contract, ALSTOM will supply two GT13E2 gas turbine/generator sets with accompanying ancillary equipment. This brings the number of GT13 turbines sold to 102.

Guy Chardon, vice president of ALSTOMs Turbo Machines Group business, said: ALSTOM sells GT13 technology either as part of a whole turnkey plant project or directly, as in this case, to customers. ALSTOM gas turbines are ranking high amongst the most advanced on the market in terms of efficiency, availability and reliability and our strategy is to expand the direct to customer equipment sales market.
