Alstom has been awarded a contract worth approximately 225 million(1) to provide power generation equipment for the Al-Anbar gas-fired combined-cycle power plant being built in the Anbar province in Iraq. A consortium of Metka SA and Metka Overseas Ltd is building the power plant for the Ministry of Electricity of Iraq.

The 1,642 MW power plant, due to be commissioned in 2016, will add much needed electricity to the Iraqi grid. Once in operation, it will be one of the largest and most efficient combined-cycle power plants in Iraq.

Under the scope of the contract, Alstom will supply four highly efficient GT26 gas turbines, four Heat Recovery Steam Generators (HRSGs), two steam turbines and six air-cooled turbogenerators.

Commenting on the contract, Steve Meszaros, Senior Vice-President of Alstoms Gas business said: The Middle East is the most promising market for gas-fired generation and we are extremely pleased at expanding our presence in this region. Alstom has been a steady partner in the reconstruction of Iraqs energy infrastructure and we are confident that our superior technology will make Al-Anbar a flagship project for the country.

Alstom is currently constructing the Al-Mansuriya (728MW) gas-fired power plant in the Diyala Governorate, northeast of Baghdad and has also recently signed the 740 MW Zubair contract with ENI Iraq B.V. These plants are based on the GT13E2 gas turbine. Alstom has also supplied the gas turbine for the Al-Najaf power plant that went into operation last year. Alstom continues to support the rehabilitation of Iraqs existing installed base including unit 1 of the Najaf gas-fired power station, 160 km south of Baghdad.
