Alstom has signed two eight-year long-term service agreements (LTSA) with the Baosteel Group in China and Vietnam’s national utility, Electricity Vietnam (EVN). Financial details have not been disclosed.
The LTSA contract with the Baosteel Group in China covers the supply of maintenance services for the Bao Shan combined-cycle cogeneration power plant. The Baosteel Group is one of the major corporations in the Asian steel market and is the largest producer of high-tech and high-value-added steel products in China.
The contract comprises the supply of new and reconditioned hot gas path components and technical field service personnel to carry out scheduled major inspections and all field assessments for a period of eight years.
The 144 MW Bao Shan plant is powered by one Alstom -supplied GT11N2-LBTU gas turbine and one steam turbine. The plant, situated at Baosteel’s steel mill close to Shanghai, burns blast furnace gas from the steel production and supplies its electrical power back into the mill. The GT11N2 gas turbine has, to date, accumulated over 170 starts and 39,000 operating hours.
In the Vietnam, the LTSA signed with EVN covers the supply of spare parts, reconditioning of hot gas path components and related outage and maintenance services for the Phu My 2.1 and Phu My 4 gas-fired combined-cycle power plants.
Both plants are based on ALSTOM GT13E2 gas turbines. The two 450 MW plants are located in the Phu My Power complex in the Vung Tau province close to Ho Chi Minh City.
