Alstom wins €200 million

Alstom has won orders worth around €200 million with Dubai Aluminium Company to construct a 430 MW gas-fired combined-cycle power plant and supply fume treatment systems for an aluminium smelter in Dubai.


Alstom has won orders worth around €200 million with Dubai Aluminium Company Limited (DUBAL) for the construction of a 430 MW gas-fired combined-cycle power plant and the supply of fume treatment systems for an aluminium smelter in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.


The contracts were signed yesterday by Alstom Chairman and CEO Patrick Kron, Mohamed Al-Gureir DUBAL Managing Director and Abdullah Kalman DUBAL CEO, at a ceremony in Dubai.


DUBAL is extending two of its nine aluminium smelting potlines at its plant, located in the south of the Emirate, and needs more power for the production process.


Alstom will carry out the engineering, supply, building and commissioning of the new power plant, including the supply of two Alstom GT13E2 gas turbines, three generators, steam turbine, heat recovery steam generator, digital control system and balance of plant.


Alstom will also supply two fume treatment centres for the extension of the two potlines which will decrease the fluoride and particulate emissions produced in the aluminium production process.


The power plant will begin delivering power as early as January 2007 with project completion scheduled for December 2007.
