Power in Vietnam

Alstom has been awarded a turnkey contract to build a 450 MW combined-cycle power plant in the Socialist Republic of Vietnam.

Alstom, in a consortium with the Marubeni Corporation and the Vietnam Machinery Erection Company, has been awarded a turnkey contract to build a 450 MW combined-cycle power plant in the existing Phu My power complex located in the Baria Vung-Tau province of the Socialist Republic of Vietnam.

The contract, worth around 238 million Euro, with an Alstom share of approximately 165 million Euro, was placed by Electricity of Vietnam (EVN), the National Utility. The Phu My 4 combined-cycle plant will be operational by mid-year 2004.

Alstom, as consortium leader, will supply two GT13E2 gas turbines, including generators, the Heat Recovery Steam Generators (HRSG’s) and the steam turbine generator. In addition, Alstom will also be responsible for the main mechanical equipment and control systems.

Alstom has delivered GT13E2 technology to Phu My previously. In early 1997, two gas turbines were commissioned on schedule in simple-cycle mode. In 2001, Alstom was awarded another order to convert the existing GT13E2 simple-cycle plant into a combined-cycle installation, gaining an additional power generation capacity of 160 MW which is scheduled for completion in the spring of 2003.
