Alstom wins turnkey project in Australia

24 May 2005 - A 450 MW power plant is to be built in Queensland, Australia after Alstom was awarded a €130m ($164m) contract by independent power producer, Braemar Power Project Pty Ltd.

The turnkey contract will see Alstom supply three of its GT13E2 gas turbines for the 450 MW open cycle power plant. The site has been designed to incorporate a further three gas turbine units at a later date with adequate space for the turbines to be converted to combined cycle.

Construction of all three units is due to begin at the end of this month with commercial operation expected in July 2006. The plant will help meet the supply demands of the state of Queensland.
