Alstom has been awarded two contracts worth approximately €450m (£375m) by the Indian private utility GVK Industries to build two units at the new Jegurupadu III combined cycle power plant in the East Godavari District of Andhra Pradesh state.
The contracts consist of an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract and an additional long-term service agreement.
Under the EPC contract, Alstom will design, manufacture, supply, install, test and commission the two units, each consisting of Alstom’s GT26 gas turbine, steam turbine, generator, heat recovery steam generator (HRSG), associated civil works and balance of plant equipment.
The gas turbine, steam turbine, generator and HRSG will be manufactured at Alstom’s facilities in Europe and Asia. Under the additional long-term service agreement, Alstom will assist GVK in covering post-commissioning maintenance activities at Jegurupadu III.
The two units, to be commissioned from 2013 onwards, will have a combined power output of 800MW.
Philippe Joubert, president of Alstom Power, said: ’Jegurupadu III is Alstom’s second combined cycle project in India to use our GT26 gas turbines, thus reinforcing our position in this particular sector.’
Alstom has built all GVK’s existing combined cycle power plants — Jegurupadu I, Jegurupadu II and Gautami I.
