Alstom signed two orders worth about $96 million with Metka
The first contract involves the delivery of a GT13E2 gas turbine and associated spares for a new fast-track simple cycle power plant, being constructed in the region of Zarqa in
The supply and installation will take place in a fast-track mode with commercial operation scheduled for June 2013. The power plant will add 146 MW to the Jordanian grid, bringing much needed generation capacity ahead of the peak summer months.
The GT13E2 gas turbine is already in operation in
The second contract involves the supply of Alstom steam-tail add-on technology to convert the existing 285 MW Samra III simple cycle gas-fired plant to a combined cycle plant. The add-on of this technology will increase the power generation capacity of the unit by an additional 143 MW. The project will enter commercial operation in 2015.
A steam-tail consists of adding steam power generation equipment to an existing gas power plant to increase its efficiency and cut emissions per MW produced.
Steam-tails are an efficient solution to increase generation capacity in the
