More Spanish Contracts for Alstom
Alstom has won contracts worth more than US$382 million with Spanish utility Gas Natural to build, operate and maintain a 400 MW combined-cycle power plant in Malaga, Spain. Alstom will deliver an integrated turnkey power plant solution featuring proven in-house technology, including a GT26 gas turbine, steam turbine, heat recovery steam generator and Topgas turbogenerator. Alstom will also be responsible for the civil works, balance of plant and the construction of a 13 km water pipeline and 5 km gas pipeline. Under the associated operation and maintenance contract, Alstom will provide full operation and maintenance services for a period of 12 years.
The construction of the plant will begin in July 2006 and is scheduled for completion in August 2008. This is the fourth turnkey combined-cycle plant and sixth GT26 engine that Gas Natural has ordered from Alstom in recent years. In 1999, Alstom won similar contracts for two 400 MW combined-cycle plants at San Roque (Cadiz) and Sant Adria de Besos (Barcelona). In 2003, Alstom won the contract to build a 1200 MW plant at Cartagena. All three plants are currently fully operated and maintained by Alstom.
