US$168 Million Turnkey Power Plant Contract
Alstom has won a US$168.5 million contract from independent power producer Braemar Power Project Pty Ltd, for the supply of a turnkey 450 MW open-cycle gas-fired power plant at Braemar, in Queensland, Australia. Alstom will design, supply, install and commission the entire power plant, consisting of three GT13E2 gas turbines, step-up transformers, plant control systems and balance of plant.
The site has been designed to incorporate a further three gas turbine units at a later date with adequate space for the turbines to be converted to combined-cycle in the future. Construction of the all three units is due to begin at the end of May with commercial operation expected in July 2006. When complete, the plant will help meet the ever increasing electricity demands of the state of Queensland.
