Alstom wins €40 million Alba combustor contract
France’s Alstom has signed a contract, valued at around €40 million, with Aluminium Bahrain (Alba) to supply six top-mounted combustor chambers equipped with Alstom’s EV burner technology.
The new combustors will be installed in the customer’s gas-fired, combined-cycle power plant, Power Station 3, at Manama, Bahrain, stated a press release.
In the first phase of the project, upgrading of one gas turbine will be completed by June 2004 after being performed during a scheduled major inspection to keep downtime to a minimum. Five other upgrades will then be carried out on the power station's remaining gas turbines – one or two being planned for completion each year.
