Alstom wins billion dollar coal power plant deal in Malaysia

Alstom has announced that it has secured an EUR830m ($1.10 bn) contract as part of a consortium that will build a coal fired power plant in Tanjung Bin, Malaysia, its second sizable power plant deal in the country in less than a year.

The total value of the consortium's contract, which includes Malaysian building materials company Mudajaya and construction firm Shin Eversendai, is over 1 billion euros, Alstom said.

The contract is for a so-called supercritical coal-fired plant. These plants operates at a higher temperature than regular coal-fired power plants, which improves their efficiency.

The Tanjung Bin power plant is the French energy and transport engineering company's second contract for a supercritical coal-fired unit in Malaysia, following the order to build the Manjung power plant in March 2011.
