Paris, December 27, 2011 — Alstom signed a close to $65 million contract with China State Development and Investment Corp., to supply two 660 MW Steam Turbine Generator units for a fossil fuel power plant in Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, China.
The power plant, located in Hami, will be the first 600 MW size power plant in Xinjiang, China with supercritical steam conditions designed for leading efficiency and lower carbon emissions.
The new 2×660 MW Hami power plant is a key project under this plan and will supply power to address the increasing needs for electricity in China’s central provinces. The plant will be completed in 2014.
Under the terms of the contract, Alstom will design, manufacture, supply, supervise installation, test and commission the two 660 MW Steam Turbine Generator units.
All major components will be manufactured and provided by Alstom’s turbine factory Alstom Beizhong Power Co. ABP is one of the most important sites in China for steam turbines and generators and has the manufacturing capacity for sub-critical, supercritical and ultra-supercritical steam turbines and generators (from 600 MW up to 1,000 MW).
