Alstom receives contracts to supply turbines to Chilean natural gas-fired plant

Alstom will be supplying two GT13E2 gas turbines and long term services for the 517-MW Kelar combined-cycle power plant located in Mejillones, Chile. The contracts are worth more than $1.38 million.

Samsung Engineering will serve as the engineering, procurement and construction contractor on the project.

The gas turbines will be equipped with the latest development of Alstom’s Advanced EnVironmental (AEV) burner, which uses a new continuous fuel variation concept as the basis for more flexible and reliable operations.
