Ansaldo Energia Signs Supply Contract for Almaty CHPP-3 Power Plant

Published on: 

The “Reconstruction of Almaty CHPP-3” power plant project will be supplied with two AE94.2 gas turbines, two generators, and auxiliary services.

Ansaldo Energia has announced the signing of a supply contract for a Kazakhstan-based power plant project—the “Reconstruction of Almaty CHPP-3”. In cooperation with Kazakh power company KBI Energy Group, Ansaldo Energia will deliver two AE94.2 gas turbines, two generators, and associated auxiliary equipment. The supply contract follows the Reservation Agreement signed toward the end of 2023, which provided customer pre-emption of the production lines to guarantee efficient delivery times.

“The signing of this contract is a proof of the customer's great trust in our skills and capabilities, supported by the Italian supply chain," says Fabrizio Fabbri, CEO of Ansaldo Energia. “I am particularly pleased that the launch of this project takes place simultaneously with the creation of a technological hub for training and skills exchange, which will help consolidate our relationships with Kazakhstan in the years to come.”


The signing of the contract helps to consolidate and grow industrial and institutional relations between Italy and Kazakhstan. In addition to the project-specific Reservation Agreement, Ansaldo Energia and Samruk Energy signed a cooperation agreement to promote future combined-cycle power plant projects in Kazakshtan and accelerate the exchange of technological skills and training. The Almaty CHPP-3 facility is a modern combined-cycle power plant that runs on natural gas.

Construction and completion of the Almaty CHPP-3 power plant will allow customers to produce electricity in a sustainable, low-cost manner. Ansaldo Energia’s AE94.2 gas turbines are designed for the use of hydrogen up to 40% mixed with natural gas and offer efficiency and operational reliability across 120 globally installed units.
