Alstom has signed an contract with GAS NATURAL FENOSA, a leading multinational company in the gas and electricity sector, for the maintenance and operational support of the Cartagena gas-fired combined cycle power plant in Spain. This 20-year contract is worth more than 270 million Euros(US$383 million).
The Cartagena plant, owned by GAS NATURAL FENOSA, was designed, built and commissioned by Alstom in 2006. It comprises three 400MW combined cycle units, each including a GT26 gas turbine, a heat recovery steam generator, a steam turbine, and a generator supplied by Alstom. Under the terms of the contract, Alstom will provide maintenance and operational support for all core equipment.
Alstom has a 20% share of the Spanish combined cycle installed base, with more than 5 GW of generation capacity and 12 GT26 gas turbines installed. In July 2010, Alstom signed a similar contract with GAS NATURAL FENOSA for the combined-cycle units of Sant Adrià de Besòs (Barcelona) and San Roque (Cádiz), both located in Spain.
“This contract reflects Gas Natural Fenosa’s continued confidence that operation and maintenance support from Alstom is the best way to secure safe operation, reliable service and high availability” said Hans-Peter Meer, Senior Vice President Thermal Services for Alstom.
