Endesa keeps faith with Alstom

16 May 2006 – Alstom has signed two new operation and maintenance (O&M) contracts with Endesa for the GT26-based San Roque 2 and Besós 3 gas fired combined cycle power plants located in Cadiz and Barcelona.

The contracts, worth a combined total of €170m ($220m) to Alstom, continue the company’s O&M presence at the plants after the initial three year contracts expired in December 2005.

The new contracts cover O&M services over a period of 16 years. Services include operation support and all scheduled and unscheduled maintenance of the plants’ power trains, including gas and steam turbines, generators and control systems.

Hans-Peter Meer, senior vice president Power Service, said: “We are proud that Endesa has again entrusted Alstom with the operation support and maintenance responsibility for their plants.”
