Alstom receives turbine orders in the UK and Middle East

27 August 2007 -- Alstom said it was selected for two projects for GT26-based combined cycle power plants, including nine GT26 gas turbines, in the UK and the United Arab Emirates.

In the UK, Alstom signed a contract valued at €850 million with RWE npower plc for the construction and the maintenance support of a turnkey combined-cycle power plant at Staythorpe, central England. Under the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract, Alstom will design, supply, install and commission the 1,650 MW gas power plant. The contract also includes a long term spare parts agreement.

In the United Arab Emirates, an Alstom-led consortium was awarded a €1.6 billion project to build a 2,000 MW power and 591 million litre desalination plant. The power station will be built around Alstom's GT26 gas turbine and marks the first time that this technology has been sold in the region. Alstom's share of the project is worth €1 billion. The contract booking is expected in the second half of fiscal year 2007/08 after the final closing of the project is completed.
