Alstom signs maintenance contract with gas-fired plant in Spain

Paris, March 31, 2011 Alstom has signed an contract with Gas Natural Fenosa, a leading multinational company in the gas and electricity sector, for the maintenance and operational support of the Cartagena gas-fired combined cycle power plant in Spain. This 20-year contract is worth more than $383 million.

The Cartagena plant, owned by Gas Natural Fenosa, was designed, built and commissioned by Alstom in 2006. It comprises three 400 MW combined cycle units, each including a GT26 gas turbine, a heat recovery steam generator, a steam turbine and a generator supplied by Alstom.

Under the terms of the contract, Alstom will provide maintenance and operational support for all core equipment.

Alstom has a 20 percent share of the Spanish combined cycle installed base, with more than 5 GW of generation capacity and 12 GT26 gas turbines installed.

In July 2010, Alstom signed a similar contract with Gas Natural Fenosa for the combined-cycle units of Sant Adria de Besos and San Roque, both located in Spain.
