Plant Gaining Steam With Alstom Installation
Alstom has been awarded a contract by Al Ghanim International to build a steam-tail add-on power plant for Kuwait’s Az-zour gas power plant. A steam-tail consists of added steam power generation to an existing gas power plant to increase efficiency.
The steam tail will add a projected 400 MW to the existing 800 MW plant, increase its overall efficiency and reduce emissions, said Alstom. Completion is targeted for 2014. In addition, Alstom has signed an eight-year long-term service contract that includes provision of spare parts, reconditioning services and technical field advisory services.
