14 June 2007 - Alstom has won a contract worth approximately €175m ($233m) with Gujarat State Electricity Corporation Ltd (GSECL) for the construction of its first GT26-based combined cycle power plant in India.
The 370 MW plant will be an extension of the existing combined cycle power plant located at Utran, Surat District, State of Gujarat, India.
Under the contract, Alstom will provide all engineering, procurement and construction services to deliver a fully integrated combined cycle power plant, with heat recovery steam generator, gas turbine and generator, steam turbine and generator, and DCS (Distributed Control System).
The power plant will be built around Alstom's world-leading GT26 gas turbine technology, which, in combined cycle, is the most efficient gas turbine technology on the market with the highest overall plant efficiency in its class.
The plant will be the fourth combined cycle power plant constructed by Alstom in the state of Gujarat, after Kawas, Gandhar, and Hazira. It will add up to 10 per cent to the generating capacity of GSECL.
