South Africa: power plant upgrade

Alstom has won a contract worth 110 million euros to refurbish the 2100 MW Arnot coal-fired power plant in South Africa, and increase its power output by 300 MW to 2400 MW. The plant is owned by state-owned utility company Eskom. For each of Arnot’s six steam generating units, Alstom will carry out a complete retrofit for the high pressure and intermediate pressure steam turbines, a capacity upgrade of the low pressure steam turbine and the replacement and upgrade of associated turbine side pumps and auxiliaries. In addition, Alstom will carry out major upgrading works to the boiler plant, including supply of new pressure part components, new burners, and modification to other equipment such as the coal mills and classifiers, fans and heaters. The first unit is scheduled to be completed by December 2007 and the last unit by December 2010.
