Alstom has been awarded a contract by Carrington Power Limited, for the supply of the power island (Gas Turbine, Steam Turbine and heat recovery steam generator (HRSG)) for the new Carrington Power gas-fired power station. The contract was signed in consortium with Duro Felguera, a Spanish company specialising in the construction of power plants. The new 880 MW power plant will be located on the site of the old Carrington power station in Trafford, next to the Manchester Shipping Canal and the River Mersey, United Kingdom. It will be built under an Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) contract. Duro Felguera is responsible for civil works, construction and balance of plant equipment. Alstom’s scope includes the supply of two GT26 gas turbines and other key components, including two steam turbines, two HRSG’s and the associated turbogenerators. Additionally, Alstom has been awarded a Long-Term Service Agreement (LTSA) to maintain the power train and ancillaries once it enters commercial operation. The power station will be capable of providing enough power for around a million homes. In the UK, Alstom has built and now maintains and operates over half of the country’s gas-fired power generation capacity. Recent gas-fired plants constructed in the UK include the 1,650 MW Staythorpe plant in Nottinghamshire, the 2,160 MW Pembroke power plant in South Wales, the 900 MW Langage power plant in Devon and the 1,275 MW Grain power plant on the Isle of Grain. With the Carrington project, Alstom will have supplied twenty-two GT26 units to the UK. Customer:......................................
