Alstom is to supply gas turbine equipment and services to provide 900 MW of electric power to the Bandar Abase region in Iran. The Hormozgan power plant will be located about 50km north of Bandar Abbas. The contract, worth around EUR 200 million, was placed by MAPNA Investment Co. (Iran) and Napna International Co. (UAE). Alstom will supply six GT13E2 gas turbines, including the generators, and will supervise the erection and commissioning work. In addition, Alstom will provide spare parts for a five-year operation period. The first GT13E2 unit will be delivered in March 2003 and the last unit in October 2003. The Hormozgan plant will be operational in December 2004 and will strongly compensate the projected shortage of power in the region. In the future, the power plant can be extended by conversion into a combined-cycle power plant with an output of approximately 1400 MW. This order brings the total of GT13E2 machines sold to 83 units. The fleet has accumulated more than 1,300,000 operating hours.
