Alstom wins €100m Chinese steam turbine order

Alstom has won an order worth almost €100m (£85m) from China’s Dongfang Electric (DE) to supply equipment and services for six 1,000MW steam-turbine-generator packages for three nuclear power plants.

The power plants are Ningde Phase II (units 3 and 4), Fuqing Phase II (units 3 and 4) and Tianwan Phase III (units 5 and 6).

The order comes after Chinese energy utilities China Guangdong Nuclear Power (CGNP) and China National Nuclear (CNN) signed an agreement with DE for the design, manufacture and supply of the steam-turbine-generator packages.

The Alstom model selected for the three projects is based on the first unit of Ling Ao Phase II (Ling Ao 3), which was delivered by Alstom and went into commercial production on 20 September 2010.

The turbine-generator package includes the Gigatop four-pole turbogenerator, moisture separator reheater (MSR), the condenser, the low-pressure heater and the Arabelle half-speed steam turbine, all designed by Alstom and supplied in partnership with DE.
