Alstom to service three power plants in USA and Canada

Press Contacts

Alstom was awarded two Long Term Service Agreements (LTSA) for three natural gas fired power plants in the US and Canada. The first is a LTSA contract(1) for EquiPowers, Milford combined cycle power station in Connecticut, USA. The group was also chosen to execute a LTSA contract(2) with TransAlta in Canada for their Sarnia Cogeneration Power Plant in Ontario and Poplar Creek Cogeneration Power Plant in Alberta. Both TransAlta plants operate Alstom built GT11N2 gas turbines while EquiPower uses Alstoms GT24 turbines.

The scope of both contracts includes parts replacement, reconditioning services, outage management, labour and on-site support staff, and optional gas turbine upgrades to increase performance and reduce maintenance costs by extending time between inspections. Execution of these projects will be managed collaboratively by Alstoms teams in Richmond in Virginia; Jupiter in Florida; Calgary in Canada and Baden in Switzerland.

Every power plant is different, and these recent contracts underscore the importance of shaping our services to meet the individual needs of our customers. That starts with identifying operating challenges at each facility and determining how best to prepare them for future power generation market dynamics, said Michael Rechsteiner, Senior Vice President of Alstoms Thermal Services business. Abundant, unconventional natural gas is reshaping the energy landscape. It is evident that LTSAs are helping operators maintain competitive advantage in this changing market.

 In 2013, Alstom achieved a major milestone by securing power plant service, support and upgrade contracts in North America with a combined value of approximately $1.2billion USD (900 million). These projects signify the push underway in the U.S. and Canadian markets to boost the reliability, efficiency, sustainability and overall performance of existing power plants while lowering components lifecycle costs.

(1) This contract was booked in Q2 2013/2014
