Alstom has been selected by Sembcorp to build a new 800 MW gas fired combined-cycle cogeneration plant on Singapore’s Jurong Island.
The plant’s construction will be carried out in two phases of 400 MW each. The EPC (Engineering, Procurement and Construction) for both phases is worth approximately EUR500m ($686m) and includes for each phase the supply of the entire unit and all associated equipment, including a GT26 gas turbine, steam turbine, turbo generator, heat recovery steam generator and ALSPA Series 6 integrated control system.
The order for phase one (400 MW), worth approximately EUR300m, includes an 18-year maintenance contract.
With this new plant, Sembcorp will roughly double its generation capacity in Singapore over 1600 MW, strengthening its position in Singapore’s power market. As well as providing electricity, the new power plant will supply steam to the petrochemical and chemical manufacturing industries located in the Jurong Island area.
Alstom built the company’s existing Sembcorp Cogen gas fired cogeneration plant, Singapore’s first, which began commercial operation in 2001.
