ALSTOM Wins Contract for GT26 Turnkey Project in Thailand
Further to the recent announcement that ALSTOM had been awarded a project for a 1400 MW combined-cycle turnkey power plant at Kaeng Khoi in the Saraburi province of Thailand, ALSTOM has signed an additional contact for a CT26-based combined-cycle power plant. The order is valued at around 700 million euros and was placed by Mitsui & Co. Ltd, Japan, and Gulf Power Generation Co. Ltd.
ALSTOM will design, build and commission the plant, consisting of two blocks with two gas turbines each, which will be owned and operated by Gulf Power Generation Co. Ltd. Equipment supplied by ALSTOM will include four GT26 sequential combustion gas turbines and associated steam turbines and generators. The first block is expected to be in full operation by March 2007, and the second by March 2008. ALSTOM will also provide major spare parts for the first 12 years of operation.
Philippe Joubert, president of the Power Turbo-Systems and Power Environment Sectors, said: “This contract is further proof, if more were needed, that the market has confidence in ALSTOM’s proven cutting-edge technology.”
