Under the terms of the contract, awarded by ABB Switzerland Ltd, Alstom will supply a 5.05 MWe Typhoon gas turbine generating set for power generation on an existing oil field.
The unit will be installed at the Gunorta Gamyshlydja oil field in Western Turkmenistan and operated by the State Concern Turkmenneft of Turkmenistan.
The gas-fuelled Typhoon generating set is a factory assembled package which incorporates the gas turbine, gearbox, generator and all systems mounted on a single underbase.
