Alstom has been awarded contracts worth €240m ($319m) for emissions control at power plants in Taiwan, Saudi Arabia and the US.

The company is seeing sustained global growth in its environmental control systems business, said Andreas Lusch, senior vice-president of Alstom’s steam business.

In Taiwan, Alstom has secured a contract from CTCI to supply AQCS packages for the 3 x 800MW coal fired Linkou Renewal Power Plant being developed by the Taiwan Power Company. The scope of the order includes supply of the seawater flue gas desulphurisation (SWFGD) system and the particulate removal system with fabric filter solution.

The Linkou Renewal project will build an ultra supercritical coal fired power plant on the existing site of a 2 x 300 MW subcritical plant. The renewed units 1 and 2 are expected to enter commercial operation in 2015 and 2016, while the third unit will start service in 2020.

In Saudi Arabia, an Alstom – Cerrey SA de CV consortium has been awarded the contract to supply boilers and air quality control equipment for the Ras Tanura integrated project. Cerrey SA de CV is 25 per cent owned by Alstom and the VU-60 type boilers for this project are licensed from Alstom.
