$56m Mexican power deal for Alstom
Contract sees Alstom responsible for combined-cycle plant in Mexico
Alstom Power has won a contract worth approximately $59 million from Spain’s ACS Group, to provide power equipment and services for the El Sauz combined cycle power plant in Queretaro, one of Mexico's most industrialised states. Under a separate seven-year, long-term service agreement, Alstom will also provide services for the gas turbine and generator.
Mark Coxon, Senior Vice-President of Alstom Power’s Gas Business, says: “This project marks Alstom’s GT24 gas turbine’s return to the market. ACS has chosen our GT24 gas turbine and steam turbine retrofit solutions, a demonstration of their sustained trust in our technology’s ability to provide cleaner power with increased availability and reliability”.
Launched in 1994, Alstom’s GT24 gas turbine has been continuously upgraded to incorporate the latest advances in gas turbine technology. Its unique sequential combustion engine emits less nitrous oxide per megawatt produced, and offers greater operational flexibility.
