Alstom to supply the first MXL2 upgrade package in the Middle East for DUBALs combined-cycle power plant

Alstom has secured a key contract in the United Arab Emirates with Dubai Aluminium (DUBAL), to upgrade two GT13E2 gas turbines with its innovative MXL2 upgrade package.

The upgrade will increase flexibility and competitive advantage of DUBALs combined-cycle power plant (CCPP). This new contract - in conjunction with an extension to the long term service agreement (LTSA) with DUBAL - will be the first MXL2 upgrade deployed in the Middle East region. Its implementation is expected to be completed in early 2015.

Progressively evolved from proven Alstom technology, the multi-mode MXL2 retrofit product gives DUBAL the ability to achieve a 1% increase in combined cycle mode efficiency as already proven with a previous implementation of the product in the United Kingdom (South Humber Bank). It will also produce an additional 12MW of gross power output, reduce CO2 emissions and increase service intervals by one-third, contributing to significantly lower operating costs.

The MXL2 contract builds on our long-term engagement and follows previous leading edge projects undertaken by Alstom for DUBAL, such as the multi-purpose, load balancing GTX cogeneration plant, says Michael Rechsteiner, Senior Vice President of Alstom Thermal Services. We are confident that MXL2 is well-suited for DUBAL and is an attractive option for many customers in the Middle East and the Gulf, where around 30% of Alstoms global GT13E2 fleet is installed.
