Singapore repowering

Alstom has been awarded a contract valued worth about EUR 280 million for the second phase of Senoko Power Station Stage I Repowering. The order was placed by Senoko Power Ltd, the largest power generation company owned by Temasek Holdings (Pte) Ltd, Singapore. In 1999, Senoko Power Ltd awarded a turnkey contract to Alstom for the first phase repowering of Senoko Stage I conventional steam plant. The first of three steam turbines was repowered in this first phase. Under that contract Alstom is also providing maintenance services for the facility, under a six-year contract. In Phase II Alstom will supply two GT26 gas turbines, two heat recovery steam generators and a water treatment plant. Alstom will upgrade the remaining two units, bringing the total Stage I plant output to approximately 1100mw. Maintenance services are also provided under a six-year agreement. The two new units will enter commercial operation in 2004 and 2005. Natural gas will be the main fuel with diesel oil as back-up. The GT26 gas turbine’s sequential combustion provides greater fuel efficiency and high power density combined with high exhaust gas energy for the combined-cycle process.
