Siemens Westinghouse Power Corporation (SWPC) has won the USD 200 million equipment contract for the 800mw Norte Fluminense thermal power plant, which will be located in the state of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, near the port city of Macae. SWPC will provide three model W501F advanced gas turbines, three heat recovery steam generators and one steam turbine for the combined-cycle plant, which will be the largest, at nearly 56% efficiency, the most efficient gas-fired plant in Brazil. Initial operation is scheduled for late in 2003. Light, an electric utility serving Rio de Janeiro, with 90% of the shares, and Petrobras with 10%, will jointly own the plant.
