Sembcorp Selects Alstom For 800 MW Of Power
Sembcorp has selected Alstom to build a new 800 MW gas-fired combined cycle cogeneration plant on Singapore’s Jurong Island.
The plant’s construction will be carried out in two phases of 400 MW each. The engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) for both phases is worth US$684.2 million (€500 million) and includes, for each phase, the supply of the entire unit and all associated equipment, including a GT26 gas turbine, steam turbine, turbo generator, heat recovery steam generator and ALSPA Series 6 integrated control system. The order for phase one (400 MW), which is worth US$410.5 million (€300 million), includes an 18-year maintenance contract.
With this new plant, Sembcorp will nearly double its generation capacity in Singapore to more than 1600 MW. As well as providing electricity, the new power plant will supply steam to the petrochemical and chemical manufacturing industries located in the Jurong Island area.
Singapore has an installed electricity generation capacity of 11 GW, with demand reaching 6.5 GW during peak periods. Many of Singapore’s power producers are adding new capacity after being incentivized to purchase gas from the new liquid natural gas (LNG) terminal coming onstream in 2013.
