has won an order worth €125 million with Dubai Aluminium Company Limited
(DUBAL) for the full turnkey construction of a 150 MW cogeneration plant in Dubai.
is an efficient, clean, and reliable approach to generating power and thermal
energy from a single fuel source, using heat that is otherwise discarded from
a conventional power generation to produce thermal energy.
energy is used to provide cooling or heating for industrial facilities, in this
case for desalination. By recycling this waste heat, cogeneration systems achieve
effective electrical efficiencies.
higher efficiencies therefore reduce air emissions of nitrous oxides, sulphur
dioxide, mercury, particulate matter, and carbon dioxide, the leading greenhouse
gas associated with climate change.
will supply engineering, procurement and construction services, along with an
Alstom GT13E2 gas turbine with air cooled turbogenerator, a heat recovery steam
generator, a distributed control system, the electrical balance of plant and all
the interconnection steam pipework for the project.
cogeneration plant will supply electricity for aluminium production, steam to
boost electricity output at three other existing Alstom-built power plants located
at the same site, namely Kestrel, Condor 1 and Condor 2 power plants. It will
also supply steam to boost water production at DUBAL''s existing seawater desalination
is a tailor-made industrial application, which highlights Alstom''s ability to
provide integrated plant engineering services.
in 2006, Alstom had built a "CCPP 22" 430 MW gas-fired combined-cycle
power plant also based on GT13E2 gas turbines and prior to that, Kestrel and Condor
1 & 2 power plants.
