Feb. 22, 2001—Alstom has been awarded a contract by InfraServe Bayernwerk Gendorf GmbH for the turnkey supply of a complete Combined Heat and Power plant in Gendorf, near Munich.

Alstom Power will deliver a GTX100 gas turbine, including a heat recovery steam generator, for the extension of an existing CHP plant which provides heat and power for InfraServe Bayernwerk’s chemical plant in Gendorf. In addition, Alstom Power will carry out electrical and mechanical integration of the unit into the existing plant.

The new unit will provide an additional output of 43 MW and will also produce almost 69 MW of heat in the form of process steam for use in industrial processes.

The GTX100, one of the latest additions to Alstom’s high-efficiency gas turbines, is fitted with burners of the AEV (Advanced Environmental) type, giving a dry, low-emission capability for both gaseous and liquid fuels. It is particularly suited for cogeneration and combined-cycle applications and designed for high levels of reliability, availability and low maintenance.

The plant is scheduled for commissioning at end-May 2002.
