Alstom Starts The Second Phase
Following a contract signed with Keppel Merlimau Cogen Pte Ltd (KMC) to build a new 2x400 MW power plant in Singapore in October 2010, Alstom has started working on the second 400 MW unit, which is worth nearly US$440 million (€300 million), the company said.
KMC is a unit of Keppel Energy Pte Ltd, the energy generation division of Singapore-based Keppel Corp. Ltd. The Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) contract includes the construction of two 400 MW gas-fired combined cycle units and long-term service agreements.
Alstom is providing the entire plant and all associated equipment, including two GT26 gas turbines, two steam turbines and two heat recovery steam generators and the ALSPA Series 6 integrated control system. When finished, the new power plant will increase KMC’s production capacity to 1300 MW, Alstom said.
Alstom also built KMC’s existing 2x250 MW combined cycle power plant, which entered commercial operation in 2007. Alstom is currently fulfilling an 18-year operation and maintenance contract for the plant.
