Under the terms of the contract, Alstom will design and
build Claus C next to the existing power plant and provide the
main components, including three GT26 gas turbines along with
TOPAIR turbogenerators, heat recovery steam generators, ALSPA
distributed control system and the relevant auxiliary
equipment. Alstom will also retrofit the existing non-Alstom
640 MW steam turbine of Claus B and integrate it into the new
combined cycle.

The replacement of the old gas-fired boiler of Claus B by
three GT26 gas turbine generator sets with HRSGs will increase
the total output to 1,280 MW and reduce CO2 emissions by 40%.
This repowering configuration will increase the efficiency of
the power plant, which is over 25 years old, from 39% now to
above 58%. The project demonstrates Alstoms capability
to integrate state-of-the art technology into existing assets
and to substantially increase plant performance.

This is the second combined cycle power plant that Alstom
has been awarded in the Netherlands over the past two years. In
2007, it won an order with Dutch utility Electrabel Nederland
to build a turnkey, combined cycle power plant
Flevocentrale - in Lelystad (Central Netherlands) which has an
output of 870 MW.   Alstom is a key player in the
Dutch power generation market: its equipment generates about
60% of the countrys electricity.

Worldwide, 85 GT24/GT26 units are in commercial operation
and have accumulated over 3 million hours of operation.
