Alstom To Equip Nigeria's Port Harcourt Power Plant
Alstom has signed a contract with the Rivers State Government of Nigeria to deliver a GT13E2 gas turbine to the Port Harcourt power plant located in Rivers State, Nigeria. Nigeria’s current electricity generation capacity is below 4000 MW, and the Port Harcourt region has undergone some drastic power shortages. The GT13E2 has a rated output of 182.2 MW.
The construction of the turbine has already started, and it is scheduled to enter into operation by the end of 2011. The gas turbine and generator rotors will be constructed in Birr, Switzerland. The final assembly of the turbine will be made in Mannheim, Germany, whereas the generator will be put together in Breslau, Poland.
