Alstom long-term maintenance deal for Australian combined-cycle plant

18 Feb 2002 – Alstom and CS Energy Ltd. of Australia have signed a long-term maintenance agreement for a gas-fired, combined-cycle plant near Brisbane. The contract, with an approximate value of €40m, offers the customer a tailor-made maintenance solution for inspections and overhauls throughout an eleven year period.

Under the terms of the agreement, Alstom will perform all scheduled inspections and overhauls for the complete power plant and will also provide a specialist on site to assure co-ordination between the customer and Alstom and first-hand support throughout the contract period.

The single-shaft, turnkey power plant, with a GT26 gas turbine, steam turbine and generator, will enter commercial operation in October 2002. With a capacity of 380 MW in true condensation mode, it will operate on a daily start-up basis.

The plant is an asset of strategic importance for CS Energy in their mission to provide electricity safely, reliably and profitably for the continued economic growth of Queensland
