Alstom to upgrade power plants in the U.K.

Alstom agreed to plans for a major upgrade with RWE Generation to implement its high performance MXL2 upgrade package on all nine gas turbines at the 2,200 MW Pembroke and 1,650 MW Staythorpe facilities — Britain’s two biggest gas-fired combined cycle power plants.

The five GT26 gas turbines at Pembroke and four at Staythorpe will each be retrofitted with the multi-mode MXL2 upgrade, which offers increased performance, substantial improvements to operational efficiency and enhances availability through increased maintenance intervals.

This agreement also includes a comprehensive maintenance program for the RWE Generation GT26 fleet across Europe; including Staythorpe and Pembroke in the U.K., and Claus-Maasbracht in the Netherlands.

With the MXL2, Alstom offers performance improvements usually associated with completely new machines — but balanced with the security that comes from fully tested technology, backed up by many thousands of operating hours.
