Under the terms and conditions of the
contract, Alstom Power will supply* the complete power island,
comprising the steam turbine generator set, the water-steam
cycle, the boiler and the ALSPA distributed control system to the
new unit 6. This unit, which will be added to the existing
otanj power plant ones, will be the countrys
first power plant with supercritical steam parameters, allowing
it to achieve the highest possible efficiency using local

The new plant, operational by the end of 2014,
will double the customers generation portfolio and
generate approximately one third of Slovenias power
production, thus allowing the country to reduce its dependency on
energy imports.

The project will have an important local
impact, enabling production of the nearby coal mine to remain at
full capacity instead of being reduced by half, and will secure
employment in the region, especially at the power station, the
coal mine and in ancillary industries.

We are honoured to be the partner of
choice for Termoelectrarna otanj thanks to our
innovative technology and Plant IntegratorTM capabilities,
said Philippe Joubert, President of Alstom Power .Not only
will this new power plant be environmentally friendly and highly
efficient, but it will also sustain employment in the
region, he added.

Alstom Power has previously installed two 114
MW gas turbines in Slovenia (228 MW in total) as well as several
steam turbines both for electricity production and district
heating, and is executing service contracts in the country.
Alstom Power has already carried out work on the
otanj power plant, modernising the boiler for Unit 5
to reduce emissions in order to meet environmental

*The equipment installed will be a STF60 steam
turbine, a TOPGAS generator and a once-through tower type boiler
with ultra supercritical steam parameters
