Alstom has been selected for the turnkey construction of two 400 MW gas fired GT26 combined cycle power plants in Spain and associated long-term service and maintenance agreements.



The corresponding contract, worth more than €450 million is expected to be signed before the end of this month.



Hc energia, a subsidiary of the EDP–Energias de Portugal group, has chosen Alstom to provide the engineering, supply, erection and commissioning of the plants along with long-term operation-supervision and maintenance services for the main power generation equipment within the plants.



One unit will be built at Castejon, Navarra, where hc energia has another Alstom GT26 combined cycle power plant, which has been in operation for over three years. The other unit will be built at Soto de Ribera, Asturias.



These new power plants will add 800MW to the capacity of the Alstom GT26 combined cycle power plant fleet in Spain, bringing the total to 4,000MW.


These latest awards in Spain follow other recent awards for GT26-based power plants: Modugno, awarded by Energia in Italy; and Lingen awarded by RWE in Germany.
