Alstom secures $64m deal for India power plant
Project will see firm renovate gas turbines at 657MW site
Alstom Thermal Services has been awarded a contract of around US $64 million to renovate gas turbines at NTPC’s 657 MW Jhanor Gandhar gas-fired power station. The site, which was originally supplied with Alstom’s GT13E1 gas turbines, will see Alstom work on installation, testing and commissioning of replacement components of the turbine equipment.
“The winning of this contract is a testimony of Alstom’s advanced technological capabilities and expertise in gas turbines services in India. Alstom has strong references in this segment and is fully geared up to successfully execute this important order. Alstom is committed to provide efficient and reliable power generation technology to fuel India’s economic growth and enable continuous and sustainable supply of electricity to its growing population,” said senior VP of Alstom Thermal Services Hans-Peter Meer.
The turbines currently being used at the site have been in operation for more than 15 years. The renovation project will ensure another 15 years of service, with the same output to the grid. Work at the site is schedule to be commissioned over three years.
