ALSTOM Wins Contract for GT26 Combined-Cycle Plant in Germany
ALSTOM has recently received the order for the permitting engineering, as a first part of a turnkey contract for an 850 MW gas fired combined cycle power plant at Lingen, Germany. The order was placed by the German utility RWE Power AG.
RWE Power has also awarded to ALSTOM an optional second part of the contract covering the supply and erection of the plant as well as a 12 year service agreement, for the scheduled and unscheduled maintenance at the plant. When RWE Power decides to build the plant, the second part of the contract will come into force.
The plant technology is based on two GT26 gas turbines in a multishaft arrangement with heat recovery steam generators, steam turbine, gas cooled electrical generators and a natural draft cooling tower.
Today, there are 76 units with this ALSTOM technology in commercial operation and the GT24/GT26 fleet has accumulated more than 1.5 million fired hours. Two projects including seven GT 26 turbines are under construction in Spain and Thailand.
