Alstom has been awarded two contracts for Long Term Service Agreements (LTSA) for GT13E2 gas turbines in the Ivory Coast and Jordan. The contract for the Azito power plant in the Ivory Coast covers a 15 year period and includes the delivery of spare parts, reconditioning services and inspection supervision for the gas turbines and generators. The contract for the Samra III power plant in Jordan spans a 10 year period and includes the delivery of new and reconditioned parts as well as supervision manpower for the execution of major inspections on all three GT13E2 units installed at the plant.

The Azito power plant, owned by Azito Energie S.A., consists of two GT13E2 gas turbines operating in single cycle mode and is located close to the countrys capital Abidjan. The plant provides 288 MW of electric power to the grid and accounts for approximately 35 % of the total electricity production in the Ivory Coast.

For the Samra III power plant, owned by Samra Electric Power Co., Alstom has already provided two GT13E2 gas turbines and will commission the third turbine, generator and auxiliaries by summer 2013. In addition Alstom is currently supplying a steam tail to convert the existing Samra III 285 MW single cycle to a combined cycle power plant. This conversion will increase the plants power generation capacity by an additional 143 MW and is scheduled to enter commercial operation in 2015.

Hans-Peter Meer, Senior Vice President of Alstom Thermal Services stated, These new service contracts confirm Alstoms strong position in servicing and maintaining gas turbines and generators. Both the Azito and Samra power plants are located in regions with extreme climate conditions where reliable power generation is key. Alstoms technology, solutions and services support our customers needs in these regions and we are committed to further building strong relationships with the local power producers.
