Alstom Turbines for Aluminum Smelter in Dubai
ALSTOM has won orders worth around €200 million with Dubai Aluminium Company Limited (DUBAL) for the turnkey construction of a 430 MW gas-fired combined-cycle power plant and the supply of fume treatment systems for an aluminum smelter in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
The contracts were signed by ALSTOM Chairman and CEO Patrick Kron, Mohamed Al-Gureir DUBAL managing director and Abdullah Kalman DUBAL CEO, at a recent official ceremony held in Dubai.
DUBAL is extending two of its nine aluminum smelting potlines at its plant, located in the south of the Emirate, and consequently needs more power for the production process.
ALSTOM will carry out the engineering, supply, building and commissioning of the new power plant, including the supply of two ALSTOM’s GT13E2 gas turbines, three generators, steam turbine, heat recovery steam generator, digital control system and balance of plant. The power plant will begin delivering power as early as January 2007 with project completion scheduled for December 2007.
