Alstom to add 400 MW steam-tail to Kuwait gas fired plant

Alstom has signed a EUR170m ($240m) contract with Al Ghanim International to build a steam-tail add-on power plant for Kuwait's Az-zour gas powered power plant, located approximately 80 km south of Kuwait City.

A steam-tail consists of adding steam power generation equipment to an existing gas power plant to increase its efficiency.
The steam-tail will add 400 MW to the existing 800 MW power plant capacity, increase its efficiency and cut emissions per MW produced. Al Ghanim International, a Kuwait-based multi-national conglomerate spanning a wide range of industrial sectors, has contracted Alstom to complete the new plant by 2014.
The contract follows Alstom's 2007 contract with Al Ghanim to supply Az-zour with five GT13 E2 gas turbines and five TOPAIR generators.
In addition, Alstom has signed an eight-year service agreement contract that includes the provision of spare parts, reconditioning services and technical field advisory services.
