Posted on October 25, 2010

Reliance Power Ltd. of India has selected GE’s power generation technology for a 2400 MW expansion of the Samalkot power plant in Andhra Pradesh, India.

Under contracts totaling more than US$750 million (€536 million), GE will supply six Frame 9FA gas turbines, three D-11 steam turbines and training and long-term services for the project. The 9FA turbines will run on natural gas, GE said.

In addition to supplying the equipment, GE also has signed a 15-year contractual service agreement for the Samalkot project.

The new plant is expected to enter simple-cycle service in the first half of 2012 and combined-cycle in the second half of that year, according to GE.
