Alstom has renewed a maintenance contract with Petrobras in Brazil to service 11 gas turbines, four steam turbines and 14 generators. The contract, which is worth around EUR 90 million ($115.5 million), covers services in Petrobras’ Governador Leonel Brizola (Termorio), Fernando Gasparian (Piratininga) and Celso Furtado (Termobahia) combined cycle power plants.
The contract comprises technical assistance services and parts for scheduled and unscheduled maintenance for the three power plants.
The 1040 MW Governador Leonel Brizola and 586 MW Fernando Gasparian gas-fired power plants are based on Alstom’s GT11N2 technology and entered commercial operation in 2004. The 185 MW Celso Furtado power plant is based on Alstom’s GT24 technology and entered commercial operation in 2003. Each of these plants has been serviced by Alstom since they began commercial operation.
Alstom has installed more than 100 turbines and generators in Brazil over the past 10 years. The company has also provided equipment and services for the 310 MW Central Termelétrica Fortaleza and the 490 MW ThyssenKrupp CSA Siderúrgica do Atlântico gas-fired power plants.
