Alstom has signed on 2 March 2011, the renewal of a Long Term Service Agreement (LTSA) with Phu My Thermal Power Co. Ltd., a subsidiary of Electricity of Vietnam (EVN). The agreement comes into force in the beginning of April and covers the gas turbines, steam turbines and the generators installed in the Phu My 2.1 and Phu My 4 gas-fired power plants. Under this LTSA, Alstom will provide over a term of eight years, maintenance services and supply parts for the main equipment installed. 

In the Phu My 2.1 and Phu My 4 gas-fired power plants, Alstom delivered four GT13E2 units, of which the first two units, in Phu My 2.1 entered commercial operation in December 1997 and the other two units in Phu My 4 entered operation in August 2004. In 2003, Alstom signed a LTSA with Phu My Thermal Power Company for both Phu My 2.1 and Phu My 4 power plants. Based on an excellent experience and cooperation between Phu My Thermal Power and Alstom in the past years, Phu My Thermal Power decided to renew the said LTSA. 

The Phu My Thermal Power Company operates successfully an installed capacity of 2485 MW which accounts for approximately 12% of Vietnam’s total installed capacity and 20% of the National energy output. Phu My is a very important gas-fired plant and supplies reliable power to national utility EVN’s Grid, supporting local industries and development. As nearly 33% of Vietnam’s power is generated from natural water resources, especially during the dry season, the safe and reliable production of this gas plant is extremely important.
“We are very pleased with this new contract for EVN’s Phy My power plant. It reconfirms EVN’s trust in Alstom as a reliable long-term business partner,” says Hans-Peter Meer, Senior Vice President, Alstom Power Thermal Services.

Through the LTSA, EVN’s Phu My power plant will benefit from the sustainable high efficiency of Alstom’s combined-cycle technology which delivers lower CO2 emissions, as well as feedback from the global experience of Alstom’s worldwide installed base.
