Alstom wins service contract for Tzafit power plant in Israel

French power and transport company Alstom has been awarded a 20-year operation and maintenance contract, worth around €330m (£288m), by Dalia Power Energies for the 835MW gas-fired Tzafit power plant in Israel.

This service contract, to be booked in the second half of the fiscal year, follows an agreement signed in June 2011 between Alstom and Dalia Power Energies to construct two 417MW gas-fired combined cycle units on an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) basis.
