Alstom has won a €4m contract to upgrade a steam turbine at the Siekierki CHP plant in Warsaw, Poland.
Under the terms of the contract, Alstom (Euronext:à‚ ALO) will upgrade a UK-50 type steam turbine by partially replacing elements of the blading system, rotor and stator blades and integration of new honeycomb seals.
The upgrade project is expected to increase power output by around 3MW and steam flow from the biomass boiler will be better optimized.
The 622 MWe and 2,081 MWth hard coal-fired Elektrocieplownia Siekierki is Europe’s second largest CHP plant. It is owned by PGNiG Termika, which is the power unit of Poland’s largest natural gas producer and distributor PGNiG. Alstom says that it will finish the upgrade by next September.
