Alstom wins Chinese contract

\"\"

Alstom's GT13E2 gas turbine generator was selected for the combined cycle plant.

Alstom Thermal Power has recently been awarded a contract by Harbin Turbine Company Limited to supply a GT13E2 gas turbine and associated generator for a combined cycle plant owned by Shenzhen Nantian Electric Power Co., Ltd (formerly known as Meishi Power), located in Shenzhen, China. The plant is scheduled to enter commercial operation by 2013.

This new contract is in addition to an existing GT13E2 gas turbine generator, which has been operating since 1995 at the same site. Alstom also signed a Long-Term Service Agreement (LTSA) with Shenzhen Nantian Electric Power Co., Ltd, which covers three maintenance cycles for each GT and includes the supply of six major inspection parts for both the new and existing gas turbines.

Alstom's GT13E2 was selected for the combined cycle plant apparently due to its efficiency, fuel performance and operational flexibility. Alstom will optimize the existing gas turbine with the GT13E2 technology which will help the customer reduce the cost of ownership and improve the product reliability and efficiency.
